AAT's Siege Mode Doesn't Work for me, does it for you?

I tried really hard to discover this on my own, as it's too unbelievable, but I failed. The Separatists' Tank, the AAT, has the ability called Siege Mode (Upper Ability), which should allow you to move the upper cannon and strike with it.

It turns out that when I trigger this ability, besides a sound and a visual change, nothing else happens. I still move normally. I still shoot with the normal cannons. There's no way I can move the upper cannon, nor fire with it. I tried the attack button, the zoom button, the melee button, the jump button, the dodge button, the sprint button, the emotes buttons, the lower ability button. Nothing works.

Yet I've seen lots of footage of people using it properly, and nobody who I talked to has experienced this.

I have this since launch, but I didn't bother as I rarely use the AAT. Has anyone else experienced that? I'm clueless to why this happens to me. It's not situational, it's like that since launch everytime I get the AAT.

    That Specialist rework was disappointing.

  • It worked when I tried it, but I do better as a moving target, I was one shotted by one while riding a LAAT Gunship though, well I did lose some health but I don't think it was much. I thought something was fishy but judging by the Focused Feedback BP thread, the Gunship just doesn't tank hits like an MTT or AT-AT (which makes sencse, but I am not good with that turret).

  • It only works if you have not changed the default key binding for it.
  • It takes two buttons to use, e.g, L1 and R1 together
  • Worked for me last night.

    But goodness, the aat is terrible.

    Thx for the replies folks

    To you and to any other who might think I may have forgotten the basics: My key to the upper ability is '2', I play on PC. When I press the ability button, I do enter Siege Mode: The screen gets a visual effect, the ability stays white as if I'm in Siege Mode, and if I press the button again, I get out of Siege Mode, and it starts cooldown.

    However, I can't control the middle cannon. No matter what I try, while I'm in Siege Mode, my AAT continues to work as if I wasn't using Siege Mode. To be honest I don't even know how Siege Mode is supposed to work, besides what I've watched from others' videos, as it never worked for me.

    I'll get a video so to make things a bit easier to understand

    That is your problem you cant have 2 as middle ability.

    Also if you press the button again as you describe that cancels it out, when in it you can't move only the main gun and zoom and fire, it only ends when you press the ability button again
