R1 grapple in the air...not working for me, what about you?

12 replies 2625 views Edited Mar 13, 2013

When on the ground I can press R1 and grapple someone into me no problem...I read within the menu that you can use R1 while in the air, but when I try it nothing happens, is this a glitch or does this not work for anyone?

 

Please advise. Thanks!

Haven't had this problem. First time I've heard of it. Strange.

If you mean the case where he puts his arm behind his back during air OS input, that's something known since the second demo's build. Try using an attack or block (cancel out with R1). He'll toss his Blades out for sure even with no foes around as such. If you're having a more serious issue where even such cases aren't working, that's a glitch rather than a design flaw.

Grappling problem

Apr 6, 2013

I seem to have stumbled upon a weird problem. The grappling hook maneuver has stopped working in my main GoW: Ascension profile.

 

I'm currently stuck on the collapsing bridge just after the cut-scene with Castor. After a few very simple jumps, the double collapsing tower is indicated as a grappling point with a green sphere.

 

The problem is that R1 does not activate the grappling maneuver. Regardless of whether Kratos is anywhere on the bridge or in the air, single or double jump.

 

I tried selecting an earlier chapter, the Cistern, and played until I encountered a sliding sequence with another, similar grappling point. This time, Kratos must jump in the air (X) before activating the grapple. No success here either.

 

I then tried creating a new profile and played until I encountered a grappling point. This time, everything is fine.

 

I also tried reassigning the controller as #2, but no success.

 

The R1 button works flawlessly everywhere else, I can open chests etc, but the grapple just won't activate. I'm running the newest EU version with no mods/cheats/whatnot installed.
