We’ve talked at length about the problems that BioWare’s Anthem has at launch. Even with the day one patch and subsequent hotfixes, there have been numerous bugs that players are still continuing to report. Still, there are some which are pretty funny to witness in action – like a Colossus somehow gaining the abilities of an Interceptor, becoming an agile truck of death.
Reddit user Feefsk recently posted a GIF of the Colossus battling the Swarm Tyrant. Suddenly, the Colossus dashes forward with a charge and even throws a shuriken like the Interceptor. How is this possible?
According to another Reddit user -Fait-Accompli-, you first have to go to the Forge and select the Interceptor. Leave the Forge and then go back, hit the R key (which changes Javelins in this case) and select Colossus. Proceed to mash the “Escape” button when the blue wheel is visible, and voila, the Colossus will have the Interceptor’s abilities.
Sure, it’s a bug and completely unintended, but at least it’s one that players are having fun with. It probably won’t be long before BioWare fixes it then, as the recent reversion of loot drop rates showcases.
