Anthem Players Find Trick For Infinite Health, And How Less Means More
BioWare admittedly still has plenty of work to do to get its live service title Anthem up to acceptable levels, though at least in the meantime many players have been discovering clever ways to utilize the game’s bugs. More recently, a few crafty player sdiscovered two unintended exploits: a way to boost the power of a Javelin, and a way to easily acquire a full bar of health and shields.
The first tip come by way of Redditor Gaidax, who recently spilled the beans on how to increase a Javelin’s maximum damage output using a rather unorthodox method. The Redditor discovered that the way BioWare calculates damage in Anthem for combos/ults/procs and melee damage is based off a player’s average item level. This is normally fine, however the user discovered that actually removing equipment from slots makes the game not take the slot into account, so by removing the lower item level pieces from one’s loadout, they do more damage as they have a higher item level. As the Redditor mentions, this also means that a player can equip a single legendary item and nothing else in order to maximize on the bug, though that will also render the Javelin with minimal HP and other stats.
This next tip is for all you Storm Javelin users out there. A Redditor by the name of MustacheSwagBag discovered that if a Storm Javelin weapon swaps right as they cast their ult, the Javelin gains a full bar of health and shields without using their ult bar. This can reportedly be done any time the ultimate bar is full. A further edit revealed that the well-timed weapon swap also cools a Javelin’s jets, which is pretty handy given Storm’s penchant for being airborne.
While BioWare has stated in the first Reddit thread that they are aware of the issue, they have yet to comment on the Storm trick, so feel free to enjoy the cheese while you’ve still got it. Anthem is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. My full review on Anthem can be read right here.
