So I picked up Fl4k again after the recent changes made to Mayhem mode, and I pulled up some videos for new build ideas to mix things up a bit. I saw a video by Joltzdude called Deputy Fl4k 4.0 (an update to a Jakobs-centered Fadeaway build), and when I clicked on it I noticed he had the St4ckbot Com equipped.
The last time I heard about the St4ckbot, pretty much everyone and their dog agreed the Com was bugged to all hell. Most notably was the fact that damage other than direct gun damage, like DoT effects, would reset all stacks and kill your DPS. I don’t know the specifics about how exactly the Com worked and my eyes would glaze over any time I tried to interpret the damage numbers myself, but at the time it was enough to make me just stick with the Stalker instead of bothering to farm St4ckbots.
I thought maybe that because it was in the video it had been updated in one of the patches, but the fact that he didn’t mention the bug in his video at all leads me to believe that he might not have known there was a problem with the Com to begin with.
Does anyone know if the St4ckbot is still broken, or if it was fixed in a recent patch? And if it hasn’t been fixed, do anybody know what sources of damage (like Dots, Novas, grenade, melee, etc) reset the damage stacks? The St4ckbot looks like it could be a cool way to mix things up if its working as intended, but I don’t like the idea of going in blind and completely gimping my damage output without knowing why (especially on a VH as squishy as Fadeaway Fl4k).
Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
