Power sword special blue glow is barely noticeable

Issue Description:
The power sword doesn’t glow blue like it did in the trailers. Graphic settings don’t matter. I’ve heard the camo skin makes it glow properly but I cannot test it now.

Reproduction Rate:
Constant (100%)

Upload Supporting Evidence:
Powered power sword in the trailer

Powered power sword in game (has the outlines but that’s it)

Force sword for psyker does have the glow

Could you please provide your launcher log file, as well as your user_settings.config file? These may be found by doing the following:

  1. Press the Windows key + R
  2. Enter %appdata% within the search input and select ‘OK’
  3. Navigate to AppData\Roaming\Fatshark\Darktide
  4. Locate the darktide_launcher.log and user_settings.config files in this directory
  5. Upload here

There you go, as other users reported the settings don’t matter much but for example, with mine, the force sword special works perfectly fine but the power sword only has the outline after the lightning activation effect ceases.
