yesterday i died to a riptire, i was clearly facing him with my shield, the shield abroke to the tire and of top of this i died. since this i was watching a bit to this and i think theres a problem like you said. someone needs to check this with video. or test it more
I think the problem is the narrowed lower part of her shield. Depending on her standing position her legs sometimes aren’t covered by the shield.
For normal fire I’d say that’s a acceptable downside, for explosions though it feels really unfair to be killed despite reacting in time just because your basic movement inputs caused 3% of your hitbox to be in line of sight of the explosion.
I have played a lot of brigitte the last few days and I have to agree, Junkrat and Pharah just seem to delete her, shield or no shield. I swear at one point a junkrat bomb over 10 yards away killed me. (though I am willing to accept that one was not what it seemed like)
She can normally hold her own but the minute there’s any kind of explosion she goes from 250 to 0 hit points before you can blink, even with a shield up.
It really does seem like it is not working as intended.
