Hello @trvtrvtrvtrvtrv and thanks for reporting this!

 

I remember the repulsor cannon one-shotting everything in arcade, and that isn't changed.

 

In arcade, I tried to reproduce the bug you described and it is indeed very weird. Things I noticed:

 

  • You have to stand really close to the opponent to make it hit. Don't know if this is always the case because I never used it.
  • Every opponent is one shotted, no matter the health. This is by design because AI cannot ragdoll.
  • For no reason, sometimes the shots do not connect. 
  • If the 1st shot of the repulsor cannon is not connected and does nothing to an enemy well within range, then the 2nd shot will always kill the AI, also if you are aiming completely off.
  • If the 2nd shot of the repulsor cannon is not connected, then the ability goes into cooldown normally.

Yes, it is broken and completely useless now. Very sad considering it was literally my all-time favorite star card in the game! Most of my YouTube channel (XP-8 TIM) was dedicated to getting hilarious kills with this thing before it stopped working. EA, please fix my favorite star card!

Specialist Repulsor Cannon Star Card has no effect on opponent on first shot. First shot never connects with target. Does not work regardless of multiplayer game mode. It is broken and completely useless now. Very sad considering it was literally my all-time favorite star card in the game!

Hello @XP-8TIM!

 

I've moved your new thread into this one, to get more attention from the developers! I saw that you already posted here some time ago, so it's good to bump this thread.

 

As for the bug, yes the repulsor cannon is absolutely broken now. I hope they got a fix for it coming soon.

@DYSPROssium 

 

That issue you pointed out about a second trigger to the repulsor cannon hitting the previously targetted enemy no matter if your attack should miss completely seems exactly like the issue Palpatine had when they messed his chain lightning badly because it could hit the AT-AT driver on Endor. You'd use chain lightning in an enemy and it wouldn't hit, but the next time you used it, it would travel to the previously targetted enemy no matter where he was in the map. I made a video showing this behavior back then:

 


I also saw this happening with his normal attack after they fixed chain lightning, I'll test this in Arcade this weekend too to see if it's still present, but I believe it has been fixed already.

 

So with 3 different mechanics all suffering from the same issue, I think this is a material worth sharing with the team.

I didn't know about that. Well then, even more reason for them to fix it.

I tested the 3 things: Chain Lightning, Palpatine's 1 and 2 handed attacks, and the Repulsor Cannon. Palpatine is free of this BUG on both the chain lightning and his lightning attack, great news.

 

But the Repulsor Cannon is indeed suffering this very BUG like shown in OP's video. I reproduced it in Arcade Splitscreen and the results are the same. It seems that there are distances which the repulsor cannon should hit, but instead it "marks" the target (just like in the video I posted before about Chain Lightning), and whenever you use it again (no matter if in the same skill usage or in the next one) aiming anywhere, it'll hit the "marked" enemy.

 

But I also found that at least at some distances it works as intended, hitting and not marking.

Here's my video on it:

 


Nothing really new, but it shows how this BUG is not 100% consistent, as sometimes it does work. But many times it doesn't work, and it seems to be related to the distance between the target and you.
