Spear loss over 50% lodged in dead animal
Trying out a spear build. Went in with 2nd tier drop down, and 5 wood. Killed polar bear. Recovered two wood spears only. I have the talent to highlight spears in the game world. The other spears were not on the bear or the ground. This really ruins any build other then bow for me. Please do something about this! I can't risk loosing expensive drop downs in this manner. I don't believe this was intended, so I assume it's a bug. Could you please respond and let us know. This whole process of me killing the bear happened way faster then any of the spears could have lost Durability.
yea its a chronic thing where even if a projectile doesn't break on impact, when an animal dies typically all but 1-3 are despawned as the animal becomes skinnable. This often leads to something like a polar bear having close 20 arrows that you can collect during combat, and if you are quick enough after killing it, you might still get some of them, but the moment it becomes skinnable they are all gone.
It is very bad, that if you shoot random arrow to draw Bears (or other animal),
the 2nd and so on that landed will be vanished after kill cam or the animal fall down motion ends.
So, even an Iron Spear cost 24 Iron Ingot, will hurt your hard work badly.
Approx 5-6 Arrow = 1 Spear thrown, but material wise, is 24 times.
This needed to be improved or to be collectable.
yes I am only building bone spears which is not so tragic to lose and with spear talent tree maxed it is still doing nice damage, for mele using knife.
I've lost steel and Titanium spears and workshop spears to this bug.
