PSA: Excalibur Radial Javelin


We understand there is some confusion regarding Radial Javelin’s recent adjustment.  Our original version of the power had built in Line of Sight, and was never intended to push through terrain.  As such, Radial Javelin as it currently stands is functioning as it was always intended to.  We apologize for the confusion this has caused and will do better to communicate these refinements in the future.


Please see here for revised PSA: https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/422796-psa-radial-javelin-unlisted-changes/?p=4692175#entry4692175

Nice fixes, but there is still no fix for not being able to hack with controllers. Well, I only tested it for grineer hacks, but it doesn't work with a XBOX Controller anymore.

Also, there is still no fix for helios scanning everything (even if the codex entry is already finished) after you had to revive.

And there is a little bug with the icons of collected items (from the floor). If you found a colour piece (mutalist red for me), some icons in this match are showing their own icon and the colour icon in front of it (I would post a screenshot, but i don't know how)

That moment when they hotfix when you're in middle of a raid...


Hotfix inbound in 5 minutes. After a long conversation with Ordis, he has agreed to stop talking as much in the Liset. About time if you asked me.

Hotfix inbound in 4 minutes. Fixes Vay Hek still blabbing his threats in the Relays. He also needs to stop talking so much.

Hotfix inbound in 3 minutes. We also fixed a bunch of other sutff.

Hotfix inbound in 2 minutes. And things.



(Sorry, I ate the missing red text.)

Darn, I thought I was being quick about getting a spot for this.

Good update though, dissapointed about Manic and Bladestorm.

Megan with the black text again -___-


Re-nerfing Excal after the overwhelming response from the community, which inevitably had it reversed.

DE apologising for the way it was handled, admitted that it was a panic move but was as intended for the future of some powers (back to the drawing board).


Answer: Wait a few months... re-nerf in a massive update and hope it gets swept under the rug?


This is lazy.


Maybe we need a "Year of Communication" instead?

Because it was Unfair.


tbh, it should just be removed.

It wasn't though, it is a skill based weapon, the TTK of every other weapon just sucked.

Unfortunately for Radial Javelin, as it stands the ability is laughably weak compared to other ultimates. If its not going to go through walls, it needs to do something more.


However, with that said, we all liked Excalibur the way he was, when he was going through walls!

Okay wait, so if LoS was always intended forJavelin then why the hell did you intentionally remove it in the first place? It was part of his balance changes, stated in the notes when it came out.
