Not sure if this is really a bug or something that may need to be suggested, but I have noticed that some weapons/tools, specifically the ones swung sideways (like hatchets and daggers) swing right over targets, missing them completely. I am unable to target downwards, and must maneuver my character over onto an incline where the target is a touch higher than she is in order for the weapon/tool to strike.
this makes fighting things like gators, harvesting bodies using a hatchet, harvesting stone with a pickaxe, etc, difficult and sometimes impossible (requiring a swap to another tool in the case of stationary targets)
I play a female character.
My husband says he does not have this issue on his male character, so its possible that its an issue with the angle of the female character’s target windows? I don’t know.
It doesn’t appear to be a constant, either, sometimes it hits other times it does not. I just swapped from stone to iron daggers, and while stone worked fine, iron daggers often swing harmlessly through the air over the heads of the gators I’m trying to keep from chomping my legs off.
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
- Equip tool or weapon that uses a sideways swinging motion - hatchet, dagger, etc
- attack a target waist height or lower (may need to be a bit lower still)
