  • The Ghostclip update changed the appearance of Bushwhacker’s turret.

    The red/blue lamp on its right-hand side used to show a corona/lens flare, with a small horizontal laser beam projecting from it.

    The small horizontal laser beam is now missing.

  • Steps to reproduce:

  • Deploy a Bushwhacker turret or find one in-game

  • Expected results:

  • Turret has a lens flare and a laser beam

  • Actual results:

  • The laser beam is gone.

  • Turret has a lens flare only

Reproduction rate:

  • 10/10


  • This change may not be specific to these mercs only and may affect others (i.e. restoring Skyhammer and Arty’s effects, but forgetting about Kira, Bushwhacker, and Proxy):
  • No other abilities or effects or other parts of the game were tested
  • I don’t know what other assets use this rope sprite laser
