Some turrets not firing


Recommended Posts

I'd hoped that Alpha-9 would solve this issue, but it seems to have persisted. I've noticed that occasionally ships will not fire every turret in a salvo, even when the target is locked. This seems more common at long range, and possibly more common with triple and quad turrets.

I've played four quick battles since the patch released and have had this issue in three of them. As an example, most recently I had a British 1925 battleship with three quad 16" turrets in a two-forward superfiring, one-aft configuration. About one in three salvos, the forward turret did not fire. Range was a constant 17km, my bearing and speed was steady at 26kts, and target was locked on the beam at 3-5% accuracy.

I find this bug so frequently that I have to ask if it's intended behaviour, and if so, why?

Greetings Admiral. Thank you for the report, this is known issue we are aware of.

@Ink - Any update on when this will be corrected?  I'm noticing that when I'm playing it's happening more frequently. 

Greetings Admiral!

After some fixes on gun colliders in the previous updates the problem should happen much less now than before. 

If some guns are not firing it might be due to turret rotation not being complete, something that can be frequent if players play at fast forward and their ships have high angular velocity due to their turning or the enemy ships are in fast movement. Another reason might be guns can lose their aiming, so they start to fire successive shots with each turret to regain the aiming.

@Ink - thx for the reply. I've been watching more when playing and think this is still an issue even with the latest fixes you mentioned.  I guess it 'could be' an issue with the guns losing their aiming but when it happens i still have a lock and its even happened when at like 30%+ chance of a hit is showing.  As for movement, this happens even when at slow speeds against slow targets where the ships on either side are moving in a straight line with all guns well within their firing arc. 

Maybe something you guys might want to check out again when you have time.
