Did your squad mates also experience the issue? Yes
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? 1
When did this happen? ( hh:mm) 31/05/19 15:30
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? People are doing damage through knockdown shields consistently when shooting at the centre
What should be happening instead? People shooting at the centre of the knockdown shield shouldn't be doing damage
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Get knocked down and have someone shoot at knockdown shield.

Seriously this bug is getting beyond annoying. Every match I have been in these last few days, people have been shooting at my knockdown shield and doing damage to me despite me holding it directly towards them. I get that you can shoot around the knockdown shields, but when I spectate other people it's the same issue, the enemies will shoot centre mass at the shield and still do damage to the person they are shooting. It's pathetic and it makes the knockdown shield more useless than it already is.
