Volt's Electric Shield Not Giving Bonuses To Hitscan Weapons With Punch Through

Recommended Posts

Tested against the infested, with Soma Prime.

It's pretty game breaking, considering that the only thing that kept Volt as a viable choice was its shield. I hope for a fix as soon as possible. :)

 

EDIT : the issue is related to punch through on hitscan weapons.

 

I noticed this bug too after update 17.4.2 and today i found out something really interesting. Electric shield seems to work just fine with weapons that are:

a) projectile based (any bow, boltor, ballistica, hikou etc.)
b) pure elemental (gammacor, amprex)

But wait ! that's not all ! Electric shield still works with normal weapons too but to make it so You have to remove any punchthrough mod on Your weapons.

DE has been constantly messing around with Electric Shield and it would be real nice if we could just stop breaking and fixing it every few updates.

Still a thing since 17.5.4. Tested with Soma Prime and a Grineer Bombard.

DE said they are working on it. They removed bonuses a few hotfixes ago...   There

It takes freaking long though.  Maybe they doing complete overhaul for Volt. I mean there were lots of threads about "Volt rework" (D20's my fav). Maybe they gonna do him after Saryn and....that other frame they doing right now.

So the issue is about punch through ? That makes sense since I put shred in a bit everything. Thanks for clarifying. :)

Still....There was nothing in the patch notes about his shield. So i assume its still in "broken" state.

 

Waiting for improvements.

Let's wait for hotfix 17.5.6 then... Or 17.6 : it depends of DE's plan.

So very much this. I desperately hope they're not reworking him completely when all that's maybe a bit lacking was overload. He was in such a solid spot for such a long time... *sigh*

While they're at it they could fix punch through breaking the alt fire for paracyst and harpak >_>

 

Please make a new thread for this. They surely won't know if your bug report is hidden in another bug report, better make them aware as efficiently as possible.

Update 17.7 just landed and still no fix for our bug. The whole update was a little underwhelming tbh. One new helm, one weapon pbr, new avatars and some minor fixes ? More like an hotfix patch. 

 

 

"- Fixed punch-through Mods disabling the Harpak and Paracyst’s alt-fire."

Well now they are just being rude.

Dude I've been waiting for that fix since update 15.5 have a look at the release date for the Paracyst.

I'm sure they'll fix volt soon enough in comparison to the punch through problem existing since 15.5

That moment when you Ctrl+F and type 'volt' on a new update page. Still, nec minit, they fix the electric shield bug with the introduction of his rework...

Bumping this. Still not fixed as U17.7.1.

You can add the Ignis to the list. I tested it today to try the flamethrower's Buff and I was disappointed to not Proc radiation instead of fire when shooting  through my shield.

They have not fixed the issue I reported either.

 

Honestly the "Volt Rework" could just be an end to all these bugs and I would be happy. And I say that as someone for whom regular Volt is still shown as my most used frame (though, prime is finally cutting into that), and he was not my starter.

This will be fixed next Hotfix.

Will this also bring those new shield/range interactions we're waiting for so badly?

 

If not, can you please say you're still working on it?
