Homing Beacon Glitched?

Mechanic Forum Talk about Mechanic

battleox288 Level 211 Scania Mechanic 4
Whenever I use Full Spread, my homing beacons never shoot out. I see the targeting sign that shows where it's going to be launched, but it never dies. This only happens from time to time and it's really bugging me, especially when I'm running dojo. Anyone have any ideas if something is causing this, or is it just a glitch?

@kuze I am going to take a guess your Mech is pretty strong, am I right?

@battleox288 Are you taking a while to kill the Dojo bosses as you progress? I don't know when this exactly happens but I think you take longer than @kuze to kill the bosses so you triggered the anti-botting. When I did Dimension Invasion on my Mech, I was spamming the mob attack and I also pressed continously Homing Bacon, eventually it stopped working for both skills. But if I don't press Homing Bacon at all, I can just hold down the 1v1 atk skill or the mob attack without triggering the antibot.

Yes, I am quite strong. 2-2m no clowns
But on another note while I was cHTing the other day I noticed that during the 1st two stages I was missing the heads. I am unsure if this is due to a glitch or HT's head moving out of the box range of homing beacon. Tmw I will try to post a quick clip of the glitch... If my GF leaves, so I can maple.

and it does suck how the attack count applies to homing beacon, life would be easier if we didnt have to move

@kuze Nice range, I might have noticed it at HT with Homing Bacon. I rather have Homing Beacon to fire automatically like NL's. It's not really nice to hold Attack button (main atk) and one more button that you have to repeat spamming at the same time.

@battleox288 Yea it can't be that, also you are too strong for dojo
Ya it's possibly happening on stationary bosses.

Missiles should work properly under good ping. If not, the target would register twice before the missiles hit. AFAIK;
-Antibot should trigger after 100 hits. Meaning around 15 rounds of missiles will trigger the antibot. This happens with stationary bosses more for a reason; you're probably not moving much during a stationary fight.
-Humanoid Heavy Salvo Plus triggers after 100 cycles. In terms of efficiency, beacons often overlap targets you have already hit, so Humanoid Heavy Salvo Plus is enough to suffice any DIPQ stage
-HT has an odd hitbox, but the least glitchy way to handle his hitbox is to always stay behind its head.

I know how antibot works though, and with it the missles fly out but deal no damage. For me, I see the redicle appear that shows where the missles will shoot at, but nothing fires. I'm constantly moving around as well

If you use missiles only while not holding down the attack key for salvo, do you hear the indicator for the Homing Beacon skill? Latency sometimes causes the reticule to appear, but the attack will not register and the sound will not play.
