  • Since the Guardian update or earlier, Direct Hits from ammo packs are sometimes missing, even when the recipient is standing still. I don’t hear the pack landing on the ground (save for lag when it lands at their feet).

    I’m only referring to the XP feed on the HUD in-game. I don’t know whether the pack’s recipient earns a lowered cooldown, or whether direct hit XP is actually counted post-match.

    Sparks packs are okay (“Direct Hit” all the time), yet I seem to remember they weren’t.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Online,
  • as Arty or Skyhammer,
  • throw ammo packs directly at players

Expected results:

  • “Direct Hit” every time a direct hit was made

Actual results:

  • Sometimes “Direct Hit” and sometimes nothing at all
  • There’s no sound of the ammo pack hitting the floor


  • N/A
