I thought it was just me! Same issue on the PC. Some enemies show and others do not. Very frustrating.

Same here Xbox One X. Enemies will not show status effect, they will still register as primed because you can still get a combo detonation from them. Also when using Ice status different enemy types can still move when they shouldn't be able too. Additionally Health bars for enemies will not show up at all or will take 4-5 seconds to show up even after you have been directly damaging the enemy. these issues seem to occur with all enemy types not limited to a specific condition or anything else.
