Friends will be Friends penance bugged?

Played with a friend, attempted the Friends will be Friends penance, we took our time and we were within 1m-2m of each other the whole time, constant coherency of at least 2 people, penance says you only need to be within coherency of 1 player without losing it.

I did not get the penance completed.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Play Chasm Logistratum as Ogryn (Skullbreaker)
    2.Attempt Friends Will be Friends penance
  2. Penance not completing

I too have this issue. I’ve tried it multiple times and I keep watching Coherency. Never drops below 2 and I just can not seem to get the penance. I’ve tried with the extra 50% coherency feat on and off. Its one of the last penances I need.

Same issue, tried 4 times and then came here to look to see if it’s bugged.

Yeah issue still exists these days. Gave up with friends after 3 attempts. We will try again after upcoming patch.

Yep I just stalked a guy for the whole game on malice and didn’t get this penance completed, theres just something buggy about it.

Recently attempted this with a friend in voice chat. Never left coherence, no completion.

I’ve attempted this multiple times, the most recent after reading (unconfirmed reports) that it will only work on maps ending with an elevator. I ran on smelter and torrent, at malice difficulty and stuck to coherency for the entire map only to end with no penance.

Most recent session logs attached below.

Same here, also bugged. I’ve ran it probably 5 times, first time i was the only Ogryn, rest of team literally never went more than 1m away from me (we coordinated in discord), didn’t get it. Last time my friends and i all played Ogryn and tried to get it, and one of my friends got it but not the rest of us, which seems impossible if i understand the description correctly. How can one person stay in Coherency with at least one other ally, without that person also getting the penance?

I attempted this twice just now and to my knowledge stayed in coherency with at least 1 other team mate, but no penance.

Was in coherency all game with a friend on discord, he got the penance I did not… Tried it four more times and no penance completed… It’s getting tiring!

Here is the latest log with no penance:

New attempt and it should have rewarded this penance - Not feeling the love…
