View Full Version : Inverse Recoil Glitch when using Chem Launcher

I have encountered a glitch/bug with the recoil when firing a weapon after using the Chem Launcher skill that results in the enemies being stuck in place (I forgot the name, apologies)

Traditonally as weapons are fired the muzzle climbs upwards. In this case, recoil is reversed and the muzzle moves DOWN.

As far as I am aware this bug only comes into play if an enemy gets stuck by the foam.

I can test again tomorrow after work and record video footage if it is required.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the report, if you could collect some footage that would be great just so we can pass this over to help with replication.

Just post the link here once you have it and we will collect it and pass it along. You can use the in-built Xbox footage share feature and we can watch it via www.xboxdvr.com if you send us your Gamertag which should make this easier :)

So after a bit of additional testing, it would seem to only affect Assault Rifles. I have tested Shotguns, Rifles, LMGs and Pistols and none of those experience this glitch, only Assault Rifles.

It's also not just limited to when enemies are caught in it, in these tests I have been testing on a bit of wall with no enemies or NPCs in the way.

Doesn't matter if it's ADS or Hip Fire, recoil is downwards.

I have captured several clips which show this

M4 Hip Fire https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/copyableoak1875/video/71228888

AUG Hip Fire https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/copyableoak1875/video/71228917

Mk17 Hip Fire https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/copyableoak1875/video/71228958

Mk17 ADS https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/copyableoak1875/video/71228983

M1911 https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/copyableoak1875/video/71228987

Hopefully this helps

NOTE: I have yet to test SMGs

EDIT - Have now tested an SMG (MP7) - downward recoil gltich with foam not present

That's amazing work thank you so much for all of this, we really appreciate it :D

I'm passing all of this over now, if we need any further information we'll get back to you on this thread!

So, I got a bit curious, I know it's already been reported as a bug that effects the Riot Foam variant of the chem launcher, but I wondered if it also extended to the other variants.

As such I decided to unlock two of the other Variants, the Oxidizer (corrosive gas) and Firestarter (ignitable explosive gas) - and after testing have found that this bug also extends to the Oxidizer variant, but NOT the Firestarter variant.

I don't have enough SHD tech to unlock the final variant, Reinforcer (repair gas), so can't positively confirm if it's affected, but given how it appears to operate from the clip in game, it looks like it is an immediate activation like Riot Foam and Oxidizer, my hypothesis is that it will also be affected, though testing will be required.

I recorded a clip of me testing out the launcher on the Base of Operations firing range with an M4, this clip contains both Oxidizer and Firestarter tests, with Firestarter first up.

I'll update further once I've got enough SHD tech to unlock the final skill variant and tested.
