An unusual mistake makes the rounds in the sci-fi role-playing game “Anthem”. Accordingly, the starting weapon is currently the strongest weapon in the game.
The sci-fi role-playing game “Anthem”, which was released a few weeks ago, is struggling with some problems. So reports made the round, according to which it regularly comes on the PlayStation 4 to serious crashes. However, a bug has also crept in, which is very unusual for an adventure in which you always get better equipment to master greater challenges.
An unusual mistake
In “Anthem”, the Endgame weapons may cause more damage than the launching weapons, but nonetheless, the launching weapons require fewer shots to knock down the opponents. Thus, the launching weapons are currently the strongest weapons in the game.
Reddit user YeetLordSupreme compared one of his Level 45 masterpiece weapons with the launch weapon. Thus, the Endgame weapon was able to deal 1180 damage per hit while the Level 1 weapon only dealt 286 damage. Nonetheless, the masterpiece weapon requires six shots for a Scar soldier. The starting weapon comes out with four hits.
BioWare takes care of the problem
BioWare Technical Design Director Brenon Holmes has confirmed that this is a bug in the balancing system. With this one wants to offer players different levels the possibility to play together in the co-op. In addition, Holmes wrote:
“We have to investigate this. Scaling systems are designed to allow low-level players to play with high-level players against high-level enemies. It’s not intended, there’s something wrong. “
Community manager Andrew Johnson also anticipates a flaw in the standard weapon that occurs when combined with higher-level gear.
“I have confirmed with the team that this is actually an error that arises specifically with a combination of the standard higher-end equipment loadout. It’s not working as intended and the team is working on an upcoming fix. “
Thus, one can assume that BioWare will remove this error in the near future from the game. However, the developers have not yet revealed when the corresponding update will be released.
