Rhino Mount damage not scaling with level/strength stat

Basic Info:

Platform: Steam
Issue Type: Gameplay
Game Mode: Single Player
Server Type: PvE
Map: Exiled Lands/Isle of Siptah
Server Name: N/A
Mods: None (I normally use several mods, but I uninstalled all of them and verified file integrity to verify this was a base game issue)

Bug Description:

The strength of the rhinoceros mount’s basic attack never gets stronger than it is when you first place the rhino into the world no matter how high it’s strength is. Only the basic attack is affected. The running attack does seem to carry the correct damage. I tested this with all pre-3.0 rhino mounts, all saddles, and on both maps.

Bug Reproduction:

Step 1: Place rhino mount down, equip saddle, and mount it. Step 2: Find a victim and kill it with basic rhino attack. Repeat step 2 with high level rhino mount.

Hold up a sec. Rhinos mounts can attack while youre riding them? I thought they could only sprint through enemies to deal damage?

Yup, space on keyboard or X/A with a controller.

So, I just randomly found a temporary fix for this.

If you try to mount the rhino and your character fails to do so (because you aren’t on level ground or the rhino is running from an enemy) it fixes the issue for the duration of the play session.

For clarification: You press the button to mount the rhino. Your character then auto-walks towards the rhino, but stops before performing the mounting animation. Then move the rhino so you can successfully mount it. When you do, it’s basic attack damage will perform correctly.
