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. When zooming in with Gibraltar AFTER his gunshield is broken, a "gunshield" will still display on your screen DESPITE it actually being broken. Try for yourself--have an enemy break your gunshield, and then zoom out and back in. A 'fresh' gunshield will immediately appear. It is only visible to you, and doesn't actually block anything until your ACTUAL gunshield has recharged. See my video here: https://www.reddit.com/r/apexlegends/comments/dm7iar/bug_watch_with_sound_please_dont_let_this_get/?...

What happens when the bug occurs? See my detailed video here:https://www.reddit.com/r/apexlegends/comments/dm7iar/bug_watch_with_sound_please_dont_let_this_get/?... When zooming in with Gibraltar AFTER his gunshield is broken, another "gunshield" will still display on your screen DESPITE it actually being broken. Try for yourself--have an enemy break your gunshield, and then zoom out and back in. A 'fresh' gunshield will immediately appear. It is only visible to you, and doesn't actually block anything until your ACTUAL gunshield has recharged. See my video here: https://www.reddit.com/r/apexlegends/comments/dm7iar/bug_watch_with_sound_please_dont_let_this_get/?... Once gibraltar's gunshield is broken, it SHOULD NOT DEPLOY when ADS UNTIL IT IS ACTUALLY RECHARGED. What this means is, since the launch of season 3, every time you zoom out and zoom in with Gibraltar, his gunshield will ALWAYS deploy on your screen, even when it's actually broken. when it's broken and you have it 'deployed' on your screen, this glitched gun shield will not actually block any damage, despite it seeming like it should work. Please see my video.
What should be happening instead? Once gibraltar's gunshield is broken, it SHOULD NOT DEPLOY when ADS UNTIL IT IS ACTUALLY RECHARGED. It should only deploy when it has "energy" left in it, and should NEVER appear with this client-side "glitched" version when it is broken and recharging.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1) engage enemy, stay Aimed Down Sights (ADS). 2) Let the enemy shoot at you until your gunshield is broken. 3) Once your gunshield is broken, take a look at the "remaining energy" tabs on his arm and note that it is indeed broken and recharging, and SHOULD NOT DEPLOY AGAIN until it's fully charged. 4) Zoom out, then zoom ADS again while it is broken/recharging. Despite the gunshileld being broken, it will still "deploy" on your screen as if it has full health. Note that this is only visible to you, because it's false. The enemy (or your teammates) will not see your gunshield in this glitched state, until the ACTUAL gunshield fully recharges.

Thank you for reporting it here, @Hawaii_Ski Standard smile

 

I've had this issue as well.

 

Seems very similar to the issue described here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Knockdown-shield-stays-up-when-destroyed/m-p/8350013#M17626

 

Might have to do with all the portable shield abilities in the game.
