The Rampart blueprint protects the Bombard from self-damage

ZzZombo 3 years ago updated by Lee "Noontide" Moon (Designer & Community Manager) 3 years ago 13

Here is a Bombard with Overdrive active and a Rampart blueprint shooting an enemy door. Next to is another Bombard with Overdrive, but no Rampart at all. They are all inside the Garrison radius, if that makes any difference. The Bombard with a Rampart blueprint attached doesn't seem to suffer self-damage, while the other does.

Game Version:
Steam Public
Platform:
Windows

I can confirm that, somewhat.
The Bombard on Overdrive who is hitting something will love HP, the Bombard which doesn't hit something (just the imp. Wall) will not lose HP.
Those Bombards shoot without hitting the door.

I double checked your report, and Bombards on overdrive with a Rampart Blueprint with some defences, does also lose HP.

Btw, thanks for the picture, it helped me replicating your issue easily and very quickly.

From above.

Reopened as current internal build continues to have the issue. Bombards do not self damage from Overdrive if they do not hit their target. Replication steps are the same.

I guess we closed it because the ticket title is misleading, because the self-damaging works, but apparently not when the bombard doesn't hit anything.
This doesn't seem to depend on ramparts at all.
We will take a look again.

OK I needed to learn that the Bombard attack only triggers on hit.
We made now sure the effect is applied already when it fires, which should fix the problem.
