Incapacitating with 1 rock throw


#1

Guys question I just had a Goliath hit me with 1 rock and I was down with full health. Can someone explain? Only thing I can come up with is damage output? But the guy told me there is a glitch with the rock hitting you a certain way?


#2

Well Rock Throw can One hit kill a Hunter with two strikes but it sounds like you got hit by a glitch or maybe a wildlife at the same time with a Damage buff.

Who knows amongst the million of bugs.


#3

Its a double collision error, the rock collided with both you and the ground, causing both Shrapnel and Impact damage, which would instaincap you.

jep stupid bug


#5

Well even in mid air Rock Throw will deal Impact and Splash Damage to one target but at most it removes half health to a third.

“Well even in mid air Rock Throw will deal Impact and Splash Damage to one target but at most it removes half health to a third”

About 60%. A goliath with 3 rock, 3 mastery, and damage perk (not elite buff) can do over 60%, and insta-kill a 2 strike hunter.

Are you agreeing with me or correcting me? I can’t tell…


#8

I’ve seen it when I rock throw a hunter that’s against a wall with a level 3 rock throw with damage bonus (+15% pre-patch haven’t tried it since) and the mastery.


#9

I’m assuming he’s correcting you because only dealing 60% damage would mean a 1 point rock throw double impact.


#10

As far as I know, it’s a registration bug. Rock Throw has two potential forms of damage- Impact and Shrapnel. There is a bug whereboth of these register which leads to instakills. :confused:


#11

Oh wait what I meant was getting hit by a 3 Point Rock Throw directly would drop you down TO about Half health to a Third. Not lose only a third…

Wording was off…

And hoo boy is it a infuriating bug to deal with.
