Carrier Bug Megathread [Investigating]

Recommended Posts

For now I've just switched to not using the Carrier at all until it hopefully gets fixed. Nearly every run on the new underwater facility for two of the event nodes had this issue by the time my squad got to the cloning tanks, so hacking any console was impossible.

 

It tends to happen for me when the Carrier is pulling in more energy orbs than you can actually use and then refuses to drop the excess orbs, thus leaving energy orbs following you around which you can never collect. Then everything that gets pulled in by Vortex after that is treated like those excess energy orbs and left floating around after you and never able to be collected. I have currently found no possible workaround to be able to collect any of these items the Carrier refuses to give up.

 

For any DE employee that happens to see this topic: I believe the issue is that the Carrier does not properly drop excess orbs that it pulls in, and this somehow causes the Carrier to get itself stuck permanently pulling in items with Vortex, but never actually giving them to you.

I can definitely confirm the thing about the pigments. My Carrier will give me everything BUT the pigments. I've even had it where he'll hold on to a large jumble of items and I can jump-kick and I will retrieve the pile of items he's carrying, but NOT the pigments. It's only started happening to me relatively recently.

(This was taken post-16.5, tonight.)

 

So, I defeated the Zanuka hunter, and my Carrier sucked up the pickups, but it wouldn't count as me receiving them. Anytime I tried to reach the items, I'd just go through them. I wasn't having any other lag problems so far as I could tell, but it just would NOT give the items to me.

 

Interesting thing about this picture, you can see that the blueprint drop is using the OLD blueprint model instead of the new one. I'm bloody well confused.

 

I eventually suicided so the enemy would shoot down my Carrier, dropping the items again. I managed to collect the BP this second time, but the mod vanished into the ether.

 

So... yeah. I'm more than a little sad about the bug, but I thought it would be worth reporting. I also have a video of me trying to grab the items, but it not working. Hopefully this sort of issue will be fixed.

it did that to me a lot in a Defense.

I got the items by jumping up, doing an air-melee upwards, and then falling back down.

In the process, the items carrier was carrying became out of pick-up range while chasing me back down to the ground, and then once it got back in range, it let me pick them up out of carriers greedy mitts~

Yeah, when I suicided and the Carrier was destroyed, it teleported the items away as well.

same here, cant pickup anything that carrier is vacuuming. The items follow me around for the entire mission, and I can't access panels or any carried objectives.

Ok so it's just energy, but the Carrier just Infinity wants to grab energy balls....so I'm left with an infinite energy pick up sound, and have had my game crash because i'll end up having 100's of energy balls following me.

There's about 50 energy balls there. Also note the full energy bar.

nice, this time its just every game, I had to mute myself because the other times this has happened I was able to get away from the orbs....now i can't they just follow me no matter where I go. 

 

My carrier does that but it does not crash me it just hangs on to it, till i use a skill.

This loki has max range and efficiency so I dont have to use his ult that often so I pick up orbs like pez....energy gets filled really quick.

Having the same issue! Carrier stop's looting items it instead grabs item's and keeps them stored underneath the carrier, as if having a hovering ball in my top left hand corner wasn't already bad enough to add distraction and target blocks on my screen. I know have to deal with a huge mess of hovering loot that completely blocks my screen at times and also makes interacting with hacks, alarms and lifts impossible.

Hey DE, the fix for carrier not picking up pigments didn't fix this problem. Please fix it soon so I can use my carrier again.

If u don't use carrier this never happens. but its a shame because carrier can be useful if those items were actually grabbed. I stopped using him because of this bug, i go into a mission and i want what drops. Carrier ruins all that goodness for me,

Most of the problems with Carrier and loot pickup stems from lag.

If you have a host that lags badly, you won't be able to pick up loot.

Also Carrier will have a hard time pulling loot.

 

Although sometimes when you die, and your ally revives you,

Carrier will still be carrying those loot but you can't pick them up.

 

Carrier gets pretty buggy when you die and get revived.

Or when Carrier blows up, and respawns when you die and use a revive.

This not in my plans to die and use revives since they are limited
