Protection From Elites is HORRIBLY BROKEN

Recommended Posts

It's been confirmed by many reddit users doing some testing that Protection from Elites actually does EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE of what it should be doing.


Here are several pics of a guy taking one shot from an elite sniper WITH "Protection from Elites": http://imgur.com/a/IiZ3p


Here he recalibrates the piece to remove the attribute: http://imgur.com/a/c7GTH


And here he retests without "Protection from Elites": http://imgur.com/a/iFHZs




So, yeah ... it's broken as fuck. Always re-roll this shit.

Damn! I am trying to find reason to keep playing.

Honestly, the only reason I can see to keep playing is that you 'need' a Gear Score of 220 for the next Incursion. While I think they may change that, without it, you won't even be allowed in.

I hope Massive has a worth while patch up their sleeve that will launch soon.

Is being fixed this thursday guys :)


From what I heard, it was a simple mix up in coding. They put a negative value, where they should have put a positive, making it increase the damage rather then negate it. Thankfully, they spotted the thread on reddit, implemented the fix, and is going out tonight/today :)


Yeah, the game is buggy, but I do appreciate how quickly they are jumping on to the fixes

You say that ... yet the "Reckless" chest piece has been glitched since launch, they've known about it for over a month and yet ...


I didn't say it, the devs did lol






They've also said they are still looking into reckless (don't ask me to link that as I have no idea where i read it), and are planning to fix in an upcoming patch. I just assume its not an easy fix as they are patching everything else quickly, like damage from elites which they've fixed in under a week since it was found, as with the new Rehabilitated perk glitch



I dont' actually fully understand it the bug TBH, does it benefit you, or the opposite?

Oh that's great, I've got 30% protection it's no wonder I'm getting smashed

Same. Last time I played I couldn't understand why I felt squishy, especially after raising my protection from elites stat even further. I understand how simple coding mistakes happen, but what I can't understand is how they can still be in the game this long after release.

Looks like theres an update going on right now that might be fixing some of this craziness lol. Game gave me 28 minute warning before server shutdown. -_-
