Grabbing off Gen

AvarikuAvariku Member Posts: 603
I don't know about other killers, I mostly play Amanda, but I have not been able to grab anyone off of a gen in three days. 
doesn't seem to matter which map either. 

the results can vary from locking me into a grab animation while the survivor runs off, to only registering as an attack.

    I have had the same issue when playing Pig and the Doctor. It is more than likely this occurs with every killer.

    I have no idea, if it's happening for ANY killer it needs to be fixed... it's not detrimental but it's definitely frustrating to sneak up on someone just to be denied the grab.

    Playing Myers and have had this happen exactly. You're not alone.

    In case you need video proof, happened to me today aswell. Happens on pretty much all killers. I think something happened in the latest updates that causes the game to not determine what to do first when the survivor gets out of a locker or of a gen.

    I haven't had the issue with lockers... but I don't catch people in lockers anywhere near as often as I do on gens. 

    regardless where it's happening they really need to look into it.

    It's been [BAD WORD] up for ages. The worst is when you get locked in place, the animation cancels and then the game makes you swing at the air.

    I was grabbing someone off the hook but the animation glitched, and it registered as a hit. Similar!

    this is apparently happening on all grab animations.  hooks, windows, pallets, gens, and lockers...

    I have had it happen on all of them at least once at this point... getting pretty old.

    It has been like that for year already, if you start your grab to late (window, pallets, lockers) or if they don't commit and just spam m1 (gen and hook) the game will try to go for the grab but the time it take for the game to register the grab and align your killer for the grabbing animation the survivor isn't grabable anymore

    Also it isn't an xbox issue, it's global

    whatever the reasoning or platform, I didn't run into this issue two months ago... I only started seeing it about 3 weeks ago.

    (not saying you're wrong, just giving my perspective) 
    regardless, it still needs to be fixed.

    Thats happens since they choose too speed up the killer animation in general. They are bugged as hell sometimes it works many times not. And since 2.4.0 the pick up animation is reverted to the old one (4.3 sec instead from 3).

    I have grabbed from plenty of locations, but I have not grabbed someone off of a gen in a little over 3 weeks.  not once. won't let me.

    Yeah, my grabs have been locking up, too lately.

  • AvarikuAvariku Member Posts: 603
    all of my grabs mess up, off and on, but the generator one has been consistently impossible.
