Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Not sure as this rarely happens. I've had it happen twice so far, one of which I have a video of.

I was playing as Wraith when I saw a Lifeline. I threw an arc star at her and stuck her, shot her a few times so she wouldn't have any armor and would go down from the explosion. Turns out the arc star did zero damage and just left me and my friend baffled after. Definitely a gameplay issue that should be looked into.

What happens when the bug occurs? When i threw a Arc star and stuck a lifeline it was stuck in the middle of the air, and she was able to walk away and take no damage when it was suppose to be stuck to her body. we lost the fight because of this (also she was next to her teammates)
What should be happening instead? Arc star should be stuck in the body of the person it hits and follows them.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? maybe see how often a arc star when sticks to a person stays on the person or if they move stays in the air where they were stuck at.

was fighting a group and turned a corner and threw arc star, i got a damage indicator and a hit marker when it hit the player, it then exploded in the middle of the air where i stuck them, instead of staying stuck on the person.

Where did the issue occur? In a match
Which part of the map or menu were you in? If you don't remember the exact name, please describe the area or what you were trying to do in the menu. This is game wide
What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. Stuck enemy with Arc Star
Did your squad mates also experience the issue? I don't know
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? 9
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm) 30.03.19 4:01 among other instances
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? When an enemy is direct impacted by an Arc Star it does a very ambiguous amoung of impact damage and then does not do explosion damage. This has happened more than 3 different times in the last 24 hours and has lost kill secures because of it each time. For reference the last time this happened the entire Arc Star + explosion did 42 damage on the enemy and it did not down them either. This is a major flaw.
What should be happening instead? Arc Star should do full direct impact damage and explosion damage
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Test Arc Star DI scenarios to see if its replicable, especially when teammate is reviving a downed enemy when stuck with Arc Star.

Fix this pls, it's not fun being punished for taping Arc Stars to people's heads.

Weird that didn't explode. Seems like a pretty rare bug and we'll keep an eye out for more reports to find a pattern. Thanks for submitting the clip, @tricky2fs!

This has happened to me the last two times I stuck someone, once today and once sometime last week. I don't record so I don't have it as a video, but I'll start now and upload clips once I get them.

How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? I threw an Arc Star at an opponent, it indicated I did 50 damage on impact. After a few seconds it exploded, indicating I did 70 damage. I should have done 120 damage for the match, since I died shortly after without doing additional damage. The end game screen showed me as having done 85 damage (if I remember correctly)
What should be happening instead? The end game screen should show me having 120 damage.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Practice throwing Arc Stars at someone, land it, let it explode, and then die immediately and see what the end game screen ends up saying.

Is there anywhere the Arc Star effects and exact numbers are documented? I've read different things about it and they're not consistent.
