Tools are swinging much slower while underwater. Close to broken

Game mode: Online official
Type of issue: performance bug
Server type: PvP
Region: NA


Tried harvesting stone underwater and noticed 2 things.

  1. I can’t aim my pickaxe to hit smaller rocks. I can only hit the largest boulders.

  2. When I swing my pickaxe underwater, the animation for each swing is 1-2 seconds. It’s a noticeable difference in harvesting speed. What would take me 1 hour before the patch now requires 2 hours.


Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Tried swinging a pickaxe underwater
  2. Surprised by slow animation
  3. Attempted to hit a rock (not brimstone)
  4. Can’t hit the rock. Rock is too small and I can’t aim the pickaxe down to hit said rock
  5. The Pickaxe swing speed was cut in half.

Hey @Candle

We’ll inform our team about this and see if it is an intentional change since there’s been some updates for swimming animations.
Thanks for the heads-up.
