This is a new bug occurring after the patch was deployed a few days ago. I am also told the Heavy and Specialist are suffering from similar issues. See link to vid below and notice the key bind blink as I try to activate Vanguard, to no avail. Please fix.

I've noticed that and I think it's that the icon is not correctly displaying that the ability is in cooldown. I've also noticed this with the scan dart, the heavy's impact grenade and the specialist's impact grenade.

FYI, I don't think your video was properly attached. I just see this static image called "bug report bugged.jpg":


I think you're trying to show that you couldn't attach the video, though. I've had the same problem here, so I ended up learning how to upload videos to Youtube so I could share them here.

@narion_k thanks man, I had attached the wrong image because these bug reports themselves are bugged and I had to create a separate report for them. Video won't attach, so I just linked it.

@MaddogMason666 I wish that were true, but this video was trimmed for efficiency. I spent a good 2 minutes trying to make vanguard work, so I doubt it's the cooldown. Especially since the issue occurs after the cooldown cycle has elapsed.
