Star Cards with Squad Spawn

With the new squad spawn system coming in the next two weeks, I think it’s pertinent that the developers make sure that all star cards are working at 100% functionality. Friends will now be in perpetual proximity to one another, in game, and card load outs that have been largely ignored or accepted as broken will now be in need of use. I’ll name two that I’m aware of and ask for others to contribute.

1. Scan Dart. This doesn’t work right. Sometimes you see it’s effects. Sometimes others do. It’s inconsistent.
2. Killstreak Infiltration. This doesn’t work at all. There is no added time with kills.

    The first one is on the internal bug list.

    The second isn't and i've had a play, seems to work fine here. With lowest tier card equipt..

    I practically go to 0 time left and get the kill then go back to just over 25%.
    Was this one you've had issue with at a higher level or is it intermittent?

    I never equipped the card as I advanced the Specialist class until it was purple. I played one round of extraction with it and abandoned it because I couldn’t see any added time upon kills. Also, this was a test because about that time I’d seen a mention here on the forums that it didn’t work. Thank you for responding. I will retest later this morning after work or when I can play again. I’ll report back on this thread.

    No problem. If you can get evidence of it not working or someone else reading this has it for the most recent patch i'll get it looked into :)
  • Can I chime in and say that the Scan Dart bug also affects Hardened Infiltration? I have had a few matches where it doesn't show anything on the radar and then somebody just appears in front of me. I am using Scramble Infiltration because of that.
    May your heart be your guiding key.

    Yes of course. This thread is for just such star Card bug reports. I run Hardened Infiltration. So your saying that an allies scan dart messes up your infiltration radar, or are you saying an enemy scan dart does?

    No, sorry. I meant that sometimes it doesn't work (so more or less the same bug with Scan Dart). I don't know what's wrong with the way radar abilities are coded in this game and how they randomly stop working.

  • I think just Infiltration is a little inconsistent in terms of showing enemies on the radar - sometimes it works no problem, others not at all. Not sure about Killstreak and Scramble, but I've noticed this on the default and Hardened. Pretty sure it was an issue a couple months ago, and was fixed, but now it's returned.
    And I agree, a Scan Dart fix would be nice.

    I believe I was mistaken. Killstreak Infiltration does appear to be working for me. It’s just a very short use time.

    Cool thanks. Never got a notification for this but bumping and replying.
  • I always carry the improved scan dart for kill assists. That is all it is for though because it rarely works as intended, you never see the actual outlines of the people. Actually I just had it work for the first time in a while yesterday in Strike and I was shocked, got a 5 kill streak with infiltration, it was beautiful. Next mode stopped working again.

    I’ve had the issue noted by others where infiltration sometimes doesn’t show any enemy on radar even though your next to an entire group. Don’t know if it has happened recently though.

    Bossk predator ability is also hit or miss for me. Half the time it doesn’t show anyone, just makes the screen have a blue tint. I’ve noticed sometimes it will start to work mid-match after being activated 3-4 times.

    Maybe they're covered in mud?

    Seriously though, why does it show some opponents in their full thermal image glory and some as blue tinted with no thermal image? It seems to me like this happens every single time I use it.
