This one is not as obvious but it still happens. I have to jump so that my shots can actually travel.

@GLiTcHz2 Yeah, extremely annoying.

And while they're at it, increase her primary width to at least 0.70 lol (it was decreased from 0.95 to 0.5 in the last patch)

@mikepal19 Thanks for the report.  I've been trying to chase this issue for a while but I still haven't been able to reproduce it on my end.  When you notice the issue happening, does it feel like everything was fine up until a certain point or do you notice the issue from the get-go and it's just a consistent issue?  Would you say you encounter this at least once a match?  Has respawning ever fixed the issue?  From the first video it looks like everything was fine, and then the moment you reloaded the floor started to obstruct the projectile path (indicated by the red x), though it is hard to tell with the constant moving.

@anpangcontractor Hello! In my experience, everything works normal for a while. Then suddenly, I miss every shot and she fires downwards. I hope my description can help you.

I've sent this to the team for review since it has a large gameplay impact but we really do need a consistent method to reproduce this to action on it.
