Mesa Copter Bug

Recommended Posts

I've observed that after using peacemaker, my ability to use melee is gone for the entire mission, this also prevents me from coptering. It happens quite often and began happening around 15.15

Definitely not a new bug in 15.15, it's been happening for quite some time now, possibly even since Mesa's release.

 

Oddly enough, the directional air attack still works when it happens, unless something changed recently.

It's been happening for a while bit it appears to be Clients only, repro'ing it has been tricky for that reason. Will try more this week, hopefully this is one of those things we can fix up for the next Update!

Glad to hear its being worked on.

This is not just a bug with Mesa. It happens with other frames as well. With some frames it comes back after a period of time, with others it doesn't. For Mesa, it doesn't require that you activate Peacemaker whilst in a melee attack as I've had it happen with her and yet I haven't unlocked Peacemaker for the first time yet (my newest frame).

 

It's really bad when it happens with Valkyr as your 3&4 become useless.

Personally this only affects me when using Mesa, and it's *very* common. Melee breaks like this probably every second or third mission, sometimes only seconds in.

I usually do the actual air attack animation cause that works unlike all my other melee hits.

But you know, just sprint if you want. 

Or you can just launch from walls to feel more awesome.

It happens while solo as well. I think it has something to do with forcing yourself in and out of peacemaker state while being in the middle of melee animations + bad luck.

 

But at least the most important thing for peacemaker which is air melee still works.

I experience(d) the bug regularly (have shelved Mesa for now), and one thing I do a lot is enter Peacemaker while airborne, with the intention of landing in/near a group to mow down. Often it'll be a sprint-slide then flip with air-melee at 45 degrees for max distance, then triggering it while still on the up-arc and sailing towards landing.

 

If you're right in regards to melee animations causing it then that would explain why it breaks just. so. damn. often.

I found that this happens when Mesa's holstering animation after ult is on going but due to some network issue client, player can move, i.e. interrupt holstering animation. When animation ends it appears that character use proper animations after that. You can even notice that "copter-bug" will not happen until you use Mesa's ult. Maybe try to focus on this stuff.

 

Edit: I found now that I'm not the only here who noticed that. :]

I don't know if someone wrote it yet. I didn't read all the comments. It happens after you get out of the peacemaker which had been casted while in the middle of coptering animation. Hope it makes easier for DE to find with that information. It happened to me once. It was in T4 survival so it was pain in the &#! because I have taken primary and secondary to lvl up and melee to carry me on. After that happened I was fully dependant on my friend. I never casted Peacemaker while coptering ever again. Nope. Not going to do that, thanks.

Mesa can also roll during peacemaker, which will make her hover in the targeted direction while firing, or roll normally if no enemies are present.

Its not just messa, its happened to me for alot of different frames. Seems to be something to do with having you melee equipped when interacting.
