Are you using any software with an overlay? Yes
If yes, can you list them here? GeForce Experience
If you disable this software, does that have any effect? No
Which Legend were you playing (if applicable)? This bug works on any legend
Which Legends were your squad mates using (if applicable)?
Where did the issue occur? In a match
Which part of the map or menu were you in? If you don't remember the exact name, please describe the area or what you were trying to do in the menu. This bug works anywhere since it's a first person view bug
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. Switching legend in firing range
Did your squad mates also experience the issue? I don't know
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? This bug works everytime
When did this happen? ( hh:mm) 15.11.19
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
How severe is your issue? Minor impact to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? When Wattson stands near her tesla coil (the ult), her tactical in the bottom left corner of the HUD gains a visive effect where it shows that the tactical is recharging faster, as intended. Changing legend from Wattson to any other legend applies the visive effect to every other legend's tactical, even after moving away from the tesla coil and using their tacticals.
What should be happening instead? There shouldn't be any animation of faster tactical recharge.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go in firing range, pick Wattson, charge her ult and place it, then change legend to see it

Since it's a bug that involves changing legend, it only happens in the firing range. The effect applied during this bug is only visive, as legends don't gain a faster recharge tactical rate. The image attached is an example, showing Wraith's tactical being "recharged" by the tesla coil.


Bug disappears by switching back to Wattson, moving away from her tesla, and pressing the button binded to her tactical ability.
