Happened to me 2 months ago, and in the same situation that you described. It's very rare to happen, but when it does it's not a big deal, your weapon is visible, you name is visible and you are still a target.
Well, it may not be a big deal to the enemy, but it can be difficult to maneuver when you're invisible. That's the real problem.
When I see it happen, I don't see the weapons either, whether it's me or another person.
It happened to me and another person in the same match, so it's not that rare.
Yeah it's bad enough when a piece of gear is broken but when a captain ability that is life or death for an engy sometimes is busted then it's a major problem. Balance fix one thing only to break another. Sigh! Gonna put my new engy on hold for awhile now!
22. Mechanic: Knockback Resistance
For this video I was running the Omega Shield (+29 Knockback resistance) on a character that has 9 in Willpower. The one thing to note that there is absolutely no resistance against knockback! There was a patch just pre Season 6 that boosted Willpower. With the introduction of Season 6 this Willpower boost was removed. With Season 7 we got a removal of all immunity resistances.
