PC, hunt mode, EU. Wraith Trap.
I was just in a game where I had taken the nomad buff, followed by the crowbill buff… in the last relay fight was given time as Jack to snipe at a Megamouth from range knowing it was elite. I killed it and went to claim my kill.
Despite pressing the key to get the buff I never got it, and continued to not get it. The megamouth decayed extremely quickly, I believe it was because reavers were eating it.
So maybe it’s not a bug, if reavers are eating something do they stop you being able to pick up the buff even though they’re not attacking you? It feels like you should be able to get the buff as long as it’s in play regardless of what’s happening to the corpse.
