Hi all, just wondering if anyone can confirm any findings they have on combat range in the game.
I’ve heard from some people that the combat range is 50m and others that it’s 70m - mostly people stating the latter. I could swear I’ve even seen some devs state that it’s 70m.
I did some testing yesterday with my friend in a custom on PC, him on Kraken and me on Cabot. I spammed pings him to judge distance. I’m assuming the pings measure in m. It’s easy to tell when you’re in combat with a Kraken as not only do you get the standard health-bar showing up, but it also changes the Kraken’s flight mode from glide to hover. (When in combat, the Kraken will not slowly descend from the sky)
We confirmed conclusively that the combat range is actually 60m, this was with me on a building roof and the Kraken in the air at the same horizontal level exactly 60m away. At ~60m, shooting him didn’t pop health-bar and he descended slowly. The moment I moved forwards to 59m and shot him, he started floating and the health-bar popped up. Wish I could upload a video but my internet bandwidth is disgustingly bad.
So, a few questions really -
- Is this 60m combat range intended? I’m a bit concerned as I’m pretty sure some devs have stated it to be 70m.
- Do combat ranges vary depending on the Monster?
- Has anyone got any solid info to the contrary? Maybe pinging isn’t accurate or something like that?
