Destroyer modules blocking sensor

  1. In gameplay if you turn your Destroyer so a module is facing the enemy they will drop off of your sensors.

  2. For enemies to remain on my sensors if they are within my sensor range or not behind objects.

  3. This is difficult to describe… a module has to be facing the enemy and blocking them from the centre of your ship, in turn blocking sensors.

  4. Whilst most prevalent in Open Space, if a module lines up on your Destroyer to the incoming enemy’s path it will block them from your sensors, making them drop off radar. This is extremely infuriating since it makes aiming certain modules to fire at them difficult if they drop off the radar shortly after lining them up.

  5. Always.

  6. Do not currently have logs available, but can be recreated easily.

It has been around for quite some time, I’ve just never been bothered to report it till now since the sudden focus on OS

That’s different thing - In Defense Contract you have 3 turtles flying side to side and a flight of Demomen flying behind it. Turtle shield is an obstacle that blocks sensors and until they spread out (or die) you cannot see anything behind it on your radar.
