Flattening Shot reduces heavy damage

Game mode: Online / Coop
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PvP
Region: NA/EU
Mods: Yes (But none should be touching the perk in question)

Flattening Shot appears to reduce the damage on heavy shots somehow. 39 accuracy heavy shots deals significantly more damage compared to having 40 accuracy with heavy shots. It is in fact so significant that even at 50 + heavy head shot you deal more damage at 39 accuracy with a normal heavy shot.

Steps used to test:
1, Co op with someone for better and more accurate test results
2, Have 39 accuracy and test damage on full charged heavy shots
3, Take 40 accuracy and test damage on full charged heavy shots

If this is intended it would perhaps be important to highlight.


This bug still exists? It’s been months now, but I don’t play archery build so I don’t see it.
