Megabomb doing NO damage glitch

[ Edited ]
10 replies 389 views Edited Oct 6, 2012

Has anyone encountered this?

 

For some reason, I have never had this happen to me since launch, but now it's happened 3 times in the past week.

 

My Megabomb lands in a nice empty space, right next to enemies, it explodes as normal... and NOTHING happens. No damage, no knockdown, nothing. It's not being blocked by the enviroment, it's not too far away, it just fails to do anything.

 

It's really crappy to earn your kickback, use it in a promising situation where you expect to get multiple kills, and then you get nothing.

Sounds annoying. I played a few co-op last night and experienced my reticle going up in the air when I ran out of bullets in my clip. Never had that happen before but it happened to one of my teammates as well. Is this new or old?

That's been happening to me for a while, but only occurred when I ran out of long gun ammo and switched to the Wes-44 (Maybe the other revolvers did it too, but none of the other pistols did). As for the Mega bomb thing, the other players might have been laggy, I've thrown normal grenades at people's feet only for them to blow up, and the person walks away without knock down.

To you and the guy below you. I believe you were using the M9, correct? If you empty the clip but don't stop aiming, it readjusts for the kick. It's REALLY weird. Don't know what's going on. If that wasn't what happened, then this sounds like something new.

Mega Bombs are very glitchy, as well with grenades. If ANY physical barrier is in the way or separates from the enemy it will NOT kill them.

 

You're best best is to bank it off a wall or ceiling to where it explodes in the air. Much more effective this way and kills 9 out 10 times.

this. I have the worst luck with Clusters, walls and cielings just eat the explosion.
