      General Bug Report Guidelines - Please Read   31/03/16

      ***Before posting in General bugs, make sure your report doesn't belong in any of our other bug categories.***   Bug reports are the key to identifying and fixing issues in Warframe. We rely on our forums heavily for identification of bugs plaguing Tenno in the field. In order to improve on our ability to act on bugs, there are some steps you can take to help us keep the forum organized. This will help our team to prioritize fixes, allowing us to serve the community where we are needed most. Before posting on the bug forums, please read the following guidelines:

      1) Search! Check to see if your bug has already been reported using our search function within the appropriate bug forum. If the issue has been reported previously, please comment on that thread instead of making a new one. In addition, some problems can only be solved by support; be sure to read this thread if you are unsure of where to submit your report.
      2) Separate! If you have found multiple bugs, please separate them into one bug per thread. Even if the same item/ability/etc. is affected by multiple issues, keep them separated unless they are very closely linked, or the same bug can be recreated in two or more ways.
      3) Specify! Make sure that your thread title is informative, indicating:
      a. Which element(s) of the game are affected
      b. How the bug affects these elements
           Helpful titles:
      Unable to perform melee finishers after using Ash's Teleport
      Event Badge in wrong position on Sentinels
      Players can enter Conclave matches with improper Conclave ratings
      Unhelpful titles:

      Uhhh, So This Happened...
      DE, This Bug Needs To Be Fixed NOW!!!!   Ensure that your bug report includes as many details as possible and that the report is made in the proper section. If possible, include any screenshots of the problem. If you know how the bug is reproduced, be sure to include that information as well.

      Thank you for helping us make Warframe the best game it can be!

Tar Mutalist Puddle Effect Bug

Recommended Posts

TL;DR: Lag + Tar Mutalist Puddles = perma-slowdown


I encountered a bug during the survival event mission for the Puncture Mods. When a Tar Mutalist used its tar blast against me, I was caught in it due to lag. It didn't slow me down. Soon, I felt the slowdown effect a second after leaving the tar area. The slowdown, however, did not cease - it continued until I died.


I thought that this was perhaps a client-side prediction problem, where the game corrects itself if an error occurs on the client-end. My game was very laggy due to my hardware, though I managed enough to continue playing. This happens during Corpus missions, too - those who lag through the laser doors will be corrected through being knocked down some seconds after they pass through.


Unlike knockdown, which ends when your Tenno stands, the tar seems to only work after you exit the area you entered. Since I technically wasn't on any tar at that moment, I assume that it was as if I'd never left it. No health damage was taken (beyond the Lvl. 42 Eximus Ancients), but the slowdown made me unable to perform - added with the lag I experienced, it was as if I was running at .5 frames per second.


After letting myself die, I resurrected with unranked gear and no energy, though I don't have a hypothesis for that.
