Pathfinder Hitbox

★★★★ Novice

Hey there,

 

Yesterday I really had a problem with pathfinders hitbox.

 

I know his hitbox got fixed in one of the last patches, but now it’s like shooting a Blade of Grass.

 

also I have seen many clips, even from good Players, who just shoot between his legs and I think this should be reworked.

 

in comparison to Gibraltar or Caustic is this hitbox a joke. And i think this isn’t fair anymore. Every legend has the same health and movement stats, but I think pathfinders hitbox is too thin.

 

i don’t say that they should bring his old hitbox back, but increase the current a bit.

 

 

Thoughts?

Pathfinder can be a bit frustrating to hit. Try aiming for the screen in the middle of his chest. Never get into a Pathfinder versus Pathfinder shootout because those last for ages. You'll be old and weary before it's over.

I think it's not a reg issue but rather a visual display issue. Because most of the times i shoot at a Pathfinder i don't see registered hits displayed on my screen but he still goes down. I mostly play Pathfinder as well and when people shoot at me i go down as fast as any other character so it must just be a visual confirmation bug.

@Payne-TK  It's a hitbox issue! they changed his hitbox and now it's stupidly difficult to hit him.

 

Respawn creating more issues with their rare patches.

@Payne-TKOne of the things about Pathfinder when you mention "visual display issue" is the fact he quite often enters into combat while grappling. So that obviously raises a slight concern based on experiences in other games - notably Battlefield vaulting - where some animations can change the way damage is taken. I'm not saying this is an actual issue with Pathfinder. But it does make fighting Pathfinder possibly more complicated than other Legends.

Never try to headshot a PF. I don't think he has one any more.

 

For me, he is the single hardest to hit legend now. Even when he is downed, anything other than centre mass and it feels like your bullets just disappear.

 

Be it hitbox, or hit reg, it needs fixing.

I have to agree Pathfinders hit box is really non existent unless your using a burst weapon or a shotgun. Even then your not guarantee to hit him I've missed countless times with anything that isn't a burst weapon or a shotgun. only a far distance can you get him with a 301, flatline etc.

I would have to agree that on occasions pathfinders hitbox does seem off. I do think it has to do with some of his skins though. I think his hitbox is registered to his default skin, and then other skins make him more bulky but you can hit those additional areas
