Coolant Harvesting - Doing it as COLOSSUS = 20% guarantee failure

★★★★ Novice

Product: Anthem
Platform:PC
Please specify your platform model. PC
AMD or Nvidia Model Number 1080
Enter RAM memory size in GB 16
Please select your region Europe
Were you on an Expedition when the issue occurred? Yes
What type of Expedition were you on when the issue occurred? Freeplay
What was the name of the Mission / Contract / Stronghold you were on? Coolant Harvesting
What was your chosen difficulty level? Grandmaster 3
What Javelin were you using when the issue occurred? Colossus
What was your Expedition team makeup? Random Freelancers
Where did this issue occur? Please include menu name or in game location. While doing the event
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm) 25.01.20 00:00
Summarize your bug The colossus moves to slow and whenever the gap between the two points is too big, you can not make it in the time given.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play as COLOSSUS and do random Coolant Harvesting events on free play. When the coolant is randomly spawned at the furthest location, you'd not gonna make it
What happens when the bug occurs? You're moving too slow and you don't have enough time
What should be happening instead? Remove the slownes while carrying the coolant or imrpove colossus movement speed

Other javelins can move faster than the colossus (e.g. STORM can still hover faster) an Interceptor runs faster even with the coolant. Playing as a colossus makes it impossible to bring the coolant back to the machine if it is spawned on location too far away. Maybe the timer should be increased to like 30 seconds? In some cases like on locations where you need to circle around obstacles, you'd need even 35 to get there without even get hit by any enemy. The colossus is slow on its own, and while carrying something it gets so slow, it was seems not tested in all scenarios. I tried dropping it several times but it spawns again at the same location... And of course I'm alone almost every single time, so there is no storm or interceptor to help me up with it. You can check the screenshots, this one is impossible to do with the colossus.

@SiLv3sTeR-M  positive and I did it again earlier.... I got hit so the timer was at 2 but managed.....I know that you know that I know....but it was just in case.....I don't know what to say apart from the fact that I jump all the time pressing the jump button long enough, I don't walk at all but I suppose you know that too so.....Thinking

@SiLv3sTeR-Mdon't agree....fly up high....look for the next place the coolant will appear (brighter and there's a light spike going up)....take it as soon as it's ready and jump to go faster....you'll have more than enough time to bring it back to the machine

I know how to wait for the coolant to spawn and me being there right before it's ready. Check the attachments. On that location you CAN'T do it with Colossus. I would skip the event every single time if it spawns on that area of the map because it would probably just waste my time. There are other spawn locations on the map where the distance is in straight line exactly on the timer. But in this location is impossible.

@SiLv3sTeR-M  nop sorry but I tried it a few times yesterday and it appeared on that location.... the countdown was at 4 when I put it in.... You have to be next to it before it's released and take it as soon as it's ready. I went around from the left of your second pic (right of the first).

@Valhalla-strider, as I told you you, I know how and where to be in order to have the maximum of ~28 seconds timer. And I do believe the drop place can also spawn on few locations, therefore are you sure that both start and drop locations are the same spot as in my scenario? I personally just went in almost straight line near the edge of the cliff, and can't reach it on time.

@Valhalla-strider, I stand corrected. I was jumping occasionally but seems not enough. I just tried jumping non-stop and it worked at the end. I even did a video recording to prove that it can't be done :D Turned out I was wrong.
