Resolved When throwing pila shield sheaths

Callum told me to report the bug here but since Horatius already posted it, i will just second his post to give it more credibility. Yes, this bug is real.

This doesn't occur if you have another ranged weapon (e.g small javs) with ammo currently in your inventory, I suspect the bug is therefore the game automatically switching your weapon when throwing the spear/pilum, but since there is no other ammo to switch to, it goes to "equip" your shield (and so unequips it).

The game deciding that you wanted to straight away equip something else was always odd with throwing weapons and now it has this bug.

Forwarded to the QA team for further investigation. We will reach out again if we need more information. Thanks for reporting and sorry for any inconvenience!


I cant believe a simple bug like this is still in the game after more than a week. Fix this already this bug is a pain in the ass in skirmish.


Grandmaster Knight
I guess this was the best attempt to break throwing spear meta. I think it worked quite well, throwing spears are now extinct species.

This is also happening for me, I will randomly sheath my shield when switching weapons, I'm sure it's related to this bug and it's gotten me killed countless times at this point, the bug has been around for near a month now, wanna do something about it?


It is also happening to me and is annoying as ****. WHEN IM ACTUALLY ABLE TO PLAY.
