Gamma Burst's cooldown is 45 seconds and not 30 seconds

Just FYI - FL4K’s action skill Gamma Burst is listed on this site and others as having a cooldown of 30 seconds and a skill duration of 20 seconds. This YouTube video actually shows a player using their action skill, which was refreshing, but that aside the video gives several examples of use of Gamma Burst for statistical comparison. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gv8_IZ0C608. FL4K triggers Gamma Burst at 1:27, the skill expires at 1:48 (roughly 20 second duration) and then resets at 2:11 (44 second cooldown. Next, FL4K triggers Gamma Burst at 3:17, the skill expires at 3:37 (roughly 20 second duration) and then resets at 4:02 (45 second cooldown). Next, FL4K triggers Gamma Burst at 4:57, the skill expires at 5:18 (roughly 20 second duration) and then resets at 5:47 (45 second cooldown). You can tell when the Burst expires by the yellow glow at the left side of the screen going away. Note, FL4K’s level was 27 and I do not know if he had any passive skills selected. I do know the number of kills by FL4K and his pet (Eager to Impress) and the number of critical hits (Head Count) did not change the action skill cooldown time of 45 seconds (vs the listed 30 seconds). I wonder how many other skills in game do not function as listed? In any case, I am thinking we will need to experiment with the skills in game to see how they really function vs how they are listed as functioning. I know that in demo’s the version they are playing may differ from the final release version but BL 3 went gold two weeks before that event and will be released in less than a month. Any thoughts?

the skill expires at 1:48 (roughly 20 second duration) and then resets at 2:11 (44 second cooldown.

In between 1:48 and 2:11 there are 23 seconds, not 44

the skill expires at 3:37 (roughly 20 second duration) and then resets at 4:02 (45 second cooldown).

Between 3:37 and 4:02 there are 25 seconds, not 45.

the skill expires at 5:18 (roughly 20 second duration) and then resets at 5:47 (45 second cooldown).

It expired at 5:42, not 5:47.
Between 5:18 and 5:42 there are 24 seconds, not 45.

The cooldown begins when the skill ends. Math!

Nice fail :slight_smile:

It’s OK, I’ve done worse at work…:pensive::pensive::pensive::pensive::pensive::pensive::pensive::pensive:

:smiley::smiley: We all should be able to laugh at ourselves and I have done worse at work.

When the first Moze gameplay got made public I needed 3 attempts, I repeat, 3 (!) attempts to time her Cooldown. And I have a stopwatch at hand for stuff like that. People make mistakes, which is not necessarily a big deal.

Agreed, the worse thing you can do is be afraid of failure. If you do not ask questions or try, even if a fail, then you have already failed. :upside_down_face: I look forward to coop play with everyone.
