While playing Anthem on my xbox one x, on March 5th 2019 between 3:40pm and 4pm, mountain time, I noticed that the Lurker grenade launcher was not always doing damage.

 

I attempted to upload 2 videos that were 20 seconds long or less as mp4s but when i added them to this, the submit button would not work. I attempted this multiple times.

 

the videos showed me shooting the lurker grenades at scar drills and while when the grenades bounced off the drills the bounce would do damage, explosions were doing zero damage. they seemed like they were in range to do damage, but nothing was happening.

 

please help, i want the grenade launchers to work and be awesome but even when they do work their damage is lackluster. and in this case idk if its an issue with range, or an actual bug just stopping the game from registering that damage should be done when its not.

The Lurker has to be manually detonated. Fire with the RT Trigger wirhout aiming with LFT Trigger. To detonate, use the LFT Trigger.

Yup i know. And back when i posted this damage was not consistently being done upon explosions. I have not used the grenade launcher since i posted this because i have seen no update patch notes stating fixes to this, nor have i received any replys for investigation. 

 

Youve given me zero new information.
