Nikana Zaws: a fairly comprehensive list of 2-year-old visual bugs


Recommended Posts

Compiled a list of visual bugs with Nikana Zaws that have been reported many times since the Sepfahn Strike was introduced 2 years ago but never fixed. Big thank you to other players who contributed by posting their bugs so I can try to reproduce - I'll link some of the other Nikana Zaw bug compilations I found at the end. If I missed anything please post on this thread.

Note that not all of these bugs are mutually exclusive, and there's not always reliable repro - sometimes it's X bug, another time it's Y, or XY. Make sure to visit the video links for a non-thumbnail version and set to HD.


Sheathe & sugatra remain visible during invisibility: 🔴 https://gfycat.com/canineunawarebasil


Elemental FX appears through sheathe: 🔴 https://gfycat.com/liveevergreeniberiannas

This still happens if the Zaw has a skin on. If you watch the whole video, you can see that this doesn't happen with normal Nikanas.



Blade clips through sheathe when moving: 🔴 https://gfycat.com/shrilllikelycobra🔴 https://gfycat.com/palemildboaconstrictor🔴 https://gfycat.com/uniformbelovedanemone

Skin or no skin (see third video) this happens constantly during basically any movement, especially frantic or twitchy ones - jumping, sliding, landing, running, turning quickly, etc. You can see this does NOT happen with regular Nikanas in the third video. It also snaps to your hand super briefly when you land before going back to the waist with its proper animation. The blade is colored green, the rest of the Zaw is red for clarity on both Nikanas.


Two sheathes🔴 https://gfycat.com/obviousnippyangora

This happens with a skin too (see image below), but second sheathe is the original Zaw's. It's a toss-up whether this happens or the sheathe just disappears entirely. If using a skin the second sheathe is the unskinned Zaw, at least sometimes.



Two sugatras: 🔴 https://gfycat.com/unevenloathsomeleech

Pretty sure this one always happens.


Sheathe & sugatra still visible when melee set to not be visible when holstered: 🔴 https://gfycat.com/mediumwastefulfly


Sheathe disappearing: 🔴   https://gfycat.com/raggedprestigiouscanary & 🔴 https://gfycat.com/slightnimblebongo

The second video shows it disappering just because I have another weapon equipped(?), vs only the Zaw equipped. People have also reported the sheathe disappearing after their first melee attack in a mission.


Sheathe persists in Arsenal when switching loadout: 🔴 https://gfycat.com/serpentinepossiblecrayfish

I found this one happens when the two sheathe bug does, and happens even if the other loadout has a completely different melee equipped. It corrects itself when exiting the Arsenal, thankfully.


Bigger weapon model, causes clipping esp. with hands

Zaws seem to be slightly bigger than normal Nikanas even with the same skin equipped. Especially noticeable where the finger clips far into the guard, and the handle & scabbard appear thicker.



Here are some other threads with images/video/good information on these bugs, as well as bugs I didn't cover or try to reproduce (sorry for the pings):

@Ace20035 has  screenshots of no sheathe, two sugatras, & two sheathes

@ShadowDragon_99 managed to get screenshots of three sugatras and no blade

@killer13tibor has lots of repro information as well as an Imgur album full of captioned screenshots

@renleech has screenshots of the sheathe still visible when invisible

@(PS4)KinslayersDawn with some well documented repro information
