Jack’s pistol damage was not reduced to 36 damage per hit as the patch notes indicate. He still does 40 damage a shot.
Out of interest, how do you know? o.0
I shot a monster with a single pistol shot and then committed suicide by leaving the map. I dealt 40 total damage on the score screen.
Do you have the pistols mastered at all? 36 is the base and with elite damage it may be boosted to 40.
I’m testing with mastery and perks disabled.
Did you connect to the multiplayer servers to download the patch? You have click Multiplayer to download the patch, then give it a try.
I already did that very intentionally before I started my regime of testing micropatch changes.
When I get a chance. This is going just like my last thread about level 2 goliath leap smash so far.
You’ll actually need a video now that I think about it.
Or… you could just go check it incredibly easily. I always make videos when people don’t believe my bug reports.
Just did a test myself, and can CONFIRM, I am getting the same results.
Body shots are doing 40 damage.
Limb shots are doing 20 damage.
Mastery and perks were disabled.
A gentleman and a scholar, many thanks for the corroborating evidence.
I shot a Monster’s limb once and did 19 damage, with Mastery on. Not sure exactly how damage is calculated, but 36x.5=18, maybe then x1.1=19.8. Or it would be 36x1.1=39.6x.5=19.3. Either way it was 19.
Edit: I’m on PS4.
Testing with mastery on doesn’t help us much (especially if we don’t know your mastery level), and shooting a limb reduces damage by 50%. The score screen is also off by 1 damage on many occasions.
I think it’s worth assuming my mastery is full, which it is. I included the 50% damage aspect in my calculations. And I don’t think it’s off, I think we’re just not always sure whether it’s rounding up or down.
Here you go. You can skip to the end to see the 40 damage total:
Is that with masteries turned off?
Yes it is.
