I’m noticing something odd but can’t seem to isolate it. When I am using a shield with the “Crouching projects your shield forward, gaining +20% damage reduction” more stuff seems to hit me than not.
For example, the Frostbite heavies, when they fire their ice projectiles, not the balls that spawn pools of cryo damage, but the spiky balls, they normally bounce off my barrier without a problem. In fact, I really only have to worry about standing in a pool of cryo for too long or a heavy jumping on my head. But if I’m crouching, with that particular style of shield, I take damage from the solid cryo projectiles.
Has anyone else noticed something similar? I’ll try to get some footage, but the heavies don’t follow directions very well.
