[BUG] Ranged attack cannot backstab from Shadowing Beyond

Question

As topic, use Shadowing Beyond, and attacking mobs with arquebus apparently does not trigger Backstab. Didn't test other ranged weapon. Melee weapon works properly.

To clarify, how are you using Shadowing Beyond in this specific instance ?

 

 

Ranged attacks could only backstab when they were made within a 2 (or 3 ?) meters distance in POE1.

 

It may be safe to assume the mechanic is still in place in POE2.

Didn't get your point here, Shadowing Beyond turn you invisible, and then u can just attack with ranged weapon and do backstab.

Yes, he was trying to backstab with a ranged weapon from within 2 meters (we talked about this in another thread - and the 2 meter-rule ist the same as in PoE).

 

I works with melee weapons but not with a ranged one from withing 2 meters when using Shadowing Beyond.

The description says that it should work with melee and ranged weapons, but only when you are not more than 2 m away from the target. ( same as PoE1)

Sorry for necroing, but can confirm this one still exists in the current beta build.

 

At least arquebuses or blunderbusses don't trigger backstab or assasinate if you use shadowing beyond to teleport right next to the target. The portrait shows the assasinate icon being active right up until the attack, but the abilities don't trigger. Even if I both start and end the teleport within base touching distance of the target.

 

With melee weapons shadowing beyond triggers those abilities fine, even when teleporting at the target from across the screen with a pike or other reach melee weapon. It sucks because shadowing beyond would be ideal way to use the AI scripting to automate a gun backstabber assassin.
