  • [Bug] Sniper does not auto attack when holding position at max range

    I think I've managed to reproduce one this a couple times. Say you control Sniper and have level 4 Take Aim. If you hold position (hotkey: H) 810 range away from a hostile unit the Sniper will not auto attack it, even with auto attack enabled in the options. However if you hold position at a range closer than 810 then auto attack will function normally.

    I theorize maybe auto attack isn't interacting correctly with Take Aim. Going to test this at different ranges next time I play Sniper. If anyone else ends up playing Sniper please try this out so I know I'm not going crazy.

    Repro Steps:
    0. Enable Auto Attack in Game options.
    1. Pick Sniper, upgrade Take Aim to level 4.
    2. Stand 810 range away from an enemy unit (i.e. max attack range.)
    3. Hold Position
    4. The Sniper will not auto-attack the enemy unit even with auto-attack enabled.
    5. Move closer to the unit.
    6. The Sniper will auto-attack the unit properly.

    The Sniper, with level 4 Take Aim, will not auto-attack enemy units when holding position 810 range away from an enemy unit (with Auto Attack enabled.)

    Expected Result:
    The Sniper SHOULD be auto-attacking enemy units whenever he is 810 range or closer with level 4 Take Aim (with Auto Attack enabled.)

    edit: Sorry accidentally posted this in the HUD forum. Mods could you please move this to the appropriate forum?
