Basically title with a clip for reference. Sadly I don’t have a clip on hand regarding SSV and Shielded Clan rats but I can attest that I’ve had both happen to me in the last week prior to this post in a similar fashion to the above clip.
Granted this clip was taken in the modded realm on C3DW but I still see these things happen even in official as well. I know that one way that this happens is the shielded enemy get’s staggered while doing a climbing animation and become stagger immune but in the above clip and in my recent experience they don’t get staggered on climbs and just start doing it on flat terrain.
Yeah I distinctly remember that most of this was fixed during the last patch but I guess there’s still some lingering effects that haven’t been fully fixed yet.
Because in my example clip its just me playing alone in a true solo so nobody else is helping me apply staggers. In that same clip for context I didn’t throw a bomb, I didn’t drag enemies up and down cliffs. The most I did to that horde is ult into it and uses pushes as my main forms of stagger. Yet after I break that bulwark’s shield he’s clearly ignoring 4 instances of a “light” stagger that should be forcing him to flinch at the least and yet he’s powering through it like prepatch.
I understand that the FK charge stagger can be cleared by pushing because prior to that things would sometimes just stay “stagger locked” to a stronger stagger and “light” staggers wouldn’t flinch them. But this is as zealot right so unless Zealot Ult is coded as Explosive Stagger like FK Ult is I don’t see what could be causing this issue outside of just general Shield Stagger Jank being left over from the last stagger patches.
