Floating shield drones


#1

just saw one, who tried to pull of a win on wraith trap with floating shield drones.
nothing was around them, just hovering in the air. and even as goliath, it was pretty hard to get them destroyed


#2

They are currently stackable, it should be fixed in an upcoming patch.


#3

nah, he doesn’t stacked them. he was flying and dropped it in the air. it was the first drone he dropped


#4

You saw the player place a drone in mid-air without stacking them?


#5

The floating shield drone is a buff hunters get in evac mode when they win my friend.


#6

Good point. That one follows the hunters though, @Wednesday13 was this one stationary or moving around?


#7

And it seems that he saw more than one drone since he talked in plural when he was referring to the drone.


#8

We’ll see what OP says.


#9

I might know what @Wednesday13 is talking about. The support I play with all the time has managed to sort of - toss? if you will, the drone while mid jump, making it pretty close to impossible for the monster to get to. It’s only worked a couple of times, but probably should be looked into.


#10

@MrStrategio Sorry to bug you, does this sound odd to you?


#11

I have had to deal with this so much that I just couldnt resist :smiley:


#12

Don’t worry, it fits the situation pretty well. ^.^


#13

I had a guy today on the PS4 do this. He put a shield drone way up above the power relay on hunt. I couldn’t hit it with any ability and it had clear line of site everywhere around the relay so I couldn’t really damage the hunters at all. I spent a great deal of time jumping with fire breath to knock it down. Losing most of my health in the process and I watched him do it a second time so I know it was not an accident that it happened.

I left and ran to the other side of the map and just waited for 8 whole minutes until time ran out. If he wants to win by cheating he will have to wait it out.


#14

OK, to be clear, I didn’t played evac and I said shield drone which implies, that the support was Sunny. I’m EU #7, I know the difference between an Evac win Buff (attacking drone) and a Shield Drone.
As I said. He jumped into the Air, and popped a Shield drone mid air, no stackerino multiple times during the round

I’m gonna go into single player and make a screen with a circle, where he popped out the drone :smiley:

I had to jump from the rock to get a melee hit to the drone and stage 3 fire needet to be used on the rock too


#15

I got a picture from the VOD of my stream. It came out of nowhere


#16

We’re aware of an issue with players being able to stack shield drones constantly until they are high up in the air. I would guess that is the issue you saw given the screenshot. It should be fixed in an upcoming patch.


#17

Ppl are also placing shield drones in places i can only assume are not intended, like unclimbable pillars. Are you guys aware of this and/or addressing it?


#18

yup. 10 chars


#19

Sentry guns are also stackable btw


#20

We know about that one too. Thanks.
