Kinetic Siphon Trap broken

Recommended Posts

Guess i am the last one doing those missions but noticed that they no longer capture the targets they just stop them for a second or two ( if you are lucky )

Can confirm this, happened to me yesterday. They work once and if you can't scan all four spots on the Simaris Target because you get knocked down (e.g.) the Traps you use after the first one don't work as they should.

Can confirm as well. Also it seems as if old accounts are having grouping issues.

Confirmed here also.  Seemed to start for me around the time of the 1st mainline of this year with all the revisions.  First trap works for a second or two; after that, traps are ineffective.  Targets have to be scanned on the run.  Please fix soon.  Thanks in advance.

Agreed, there's no way to actually hold targets for more than a moment with the first trap and every trap after that is a waste because it doesn't function at all.

Happend to me a few days ago in several occasions. My first kinetic syphon trap works, but after that no matter how many I put down, they don't lift the target up into the air anymore. Please fix!

Contact DE support with a ticket. This is a real issue that will need addressing.

Can still confirm. How are you guys getting your scans then?

 

Try Penta with Tether augment. They keeps them trapped for a few seconds. Also there are the Aero mod set that can put them to sleep for 9 seconds.

Bump.

I mean, what else is there to say? A quick search shows people have had this issue since the beginning of March.

It's been almost two months, guys. And this is still broken? C'mon.

Hi,

so the original post is from March 15th, more than a month ago.

And the siphon traps are still not reliable. That is especially annoying if you need them for Nightwave tasks. Please fix this.

Just a few minutes ago I was able to do 3 scans, but the 4th was simply impossible, not with the traps, not with Rhino´s 4th ability. Frustrating. Basic gameplay that doesn´t work is always the worst for me. New things not working is normal for a while, but this....

I am also experiencing this issue. My Kinetic Siphon Traps are not performing correctly when used on Synthesis targets. My most recent Synthesis saw 5 or 6 traps all fail to suspend the target. I believe what happened is that the first Trap worked very briefly (only time for 1 or 2 scans), but subsequent traps did nothing but pause the target for a moment. It almost resembles the adaptive resistance to Limbo's Stasis that was added to Sentient enemies recently. The Synthesis itself did eventually work, but only by getting lucky with the target's AI staying in one location.

I only used the traps via hotkey (5 in my case). I did not attempt to use them from the gear wheel manually, so I am unsure if both methods have the same effect.

At the time, I did not have access to any Warframe Abilities that could be used in a similar fashion, so I do not know if they would have had similar issues.

This issue seems to be inconsistent, as I have witnessed the Traps work properly for squadmates, and they have worked for me somewhat recently. I believe the target I Synthesized when I experienced this was an Arid Eviscerator.

 

Edit: As of this moment, I do not have repro steps, as the issue seems to be inconsistent. If I am able to find any, I will come back and include them.

Still not fixed.  I cannot finish the quest needed for Jupiter junction because these traps don't work. Broken game!

Well I always forget to equip Kinetic Siphon, so I basically run behind the target, void dash to ragdoll and scan it ( if you don't have Magus lock down) or use Sleepnox or Vauban's tether or just blind it (works with me)

Don't know why, but I thought warframe powers don't work on the synthesis target! Never tried though (because there were a much more useful alternative).

Which warframes do you have? You might be able to scan that target while locking it in one place.

I have Ember, Gaus, Loki, Frost Prime and Trinity Prime. I tried to use Loki's invisibility skill to sneak behind the target to scan him, but there are almost always a lot of enemies around so I can't do it without alerting the enemies.

Maybe a high duration, low strength Frost will work, synthesis targets have a lot of health fortunately! Try casting Avalanche, then scanning it quickly. Buy the Vector-Thread Widget from Simaris, in case you don't own it already, it reduces the time required to scan targets.

Edit: back to Frost, some range won't hurt, if you have mod capacity left.
