Fire elemental dot bug? 1 dmg/sec

#1andhagPosted 4/5/2013 1:14:35 PM
Hey! With the Siren, fire elemental dot from both the Volcano and the HellFire sometimes deal 1 dmg/sec instead of the expected thousands. This is extremely annoying in UVHM where the enemies have health regen. Anyone know how to get around this, if possible? Thank you.

If I had to guess, I'd say stop shooting fire weapons at people who are resistant to fire.

Not the issue, since I'm shooting at Bullymongs atm :/

You get that with e-tech guns, too, and not just in UVHM. I think it has to do with the damage stacking.

Sorry, that just seemed the most obvious thing to check. Have you tried slagging them to see if you can improve anything that way?

Its an old but obscure issue. Essentially its a weird glitch that has been around since launch. Its known in the community just not by all. So GBX.. well done once again. :P

Thanks for the replies. And wow, that really does suck :/ I'll be constantly annoyed from now on. Btw, I did notice the same thing happening before but things died so quickly anyway so I was never really bothered by it.

Oh well :(
