Crossbow non-stop ammo
« on: April 23, 2020, 04:51:58 pm »
If you have 1 stone and 1 iron arrow

Crossbow will keep shooting and generating new arrows. Non-Stop Free Ammo.

It does no damage though...

Hello!

Thanks for reporting!
Yes, it's a known issue that happens for some players. Exactly the same issue as reported here http://forums.atomictorch.com/index.php?topic=1589.0
The client is shooting (displaying the shot) and then instantly starting reloading different ammo type.
The server is receiving the shoot command together with the reload/ammo switch request so the crossbow never shot on the server side (hence you don't lose any ammo/arrows and don't deal any damage), it's only getting reloaded-reloaded-reloaded-... :D

The workaround now is to remove the extra ammo types from your inventory so you will have only a single type. Then client will not send the ammo reloading/swapping request after the shot. The server will shot properly and consume the ammo, deal the damage.

We're going to finally fix this in one of the patches for A26.

Enjoy the game!

Regards!
