16 months too late, but now that you've posted, people will completely forget that your team has completely abandoned her for over a year.


I will never understand people who are so vindictive, holy cow chill. What do you mean to achieve with this comment?

Anyway, I'm glad these bugs are being looked into, as someone who plays sombra a lot it'd be really appreciated if the crucial bugs get fixed first and foremost. The ghost translocator primarily. I've not been experiencing the 'lingering hit' issue though, im pretty sure that's fixed.
Quick update.

Bug 1 - "Phantom Translocate"
This is an old bug that was fixed last February (Patch 1.8.0)

Bug 2 - "Ghost Throw"
This bug was fixed in Patch 1.14.1

Bug 3 - "Lagging Hitbox"
This bug was fixed in 1.13.0

Bug 6 "Sombra Hack Priority"
We don't consider this a bug. This was the developer comment at the time:
“Keep in mind there is a 0.1s delay before the beam is allowed to break. So if you recall with less than 0.1s left on the hack, it will complete. This is intended (for now...)”

Please let us know if you're still experiencing the "fixed" bugs in the current, live game and we need to revisit them.

We're still looking into the rest of the list.

Inspired by iSinner's bug collection on Doomfist, I decided to do the same thing with Sombra.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Translocator Bugs
Bug 1
Phantom Translocate: Whenever you throw Translocator, you would go to teleport to safety, it instead teleports you on the spot you were on, making it hard to evade to safety.
Example(s):

1.1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QrAWeEYkHY
1.2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6CIFrhqWcY
1.3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jqzDJNgsAI
1.4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pp2kbhplPk0
1.5 https://plays.tv/video/59ab079c26890a191f/wtf-is-this-bug-
1.6 https://gfycat.com/GloomyJealousCow
1.7 https://gfycat.com/UnknownSlightGnu
1.8 https://gfycat.com/GrandGlossyHarvestmouse
1.9 https://clips.twitch.tv/AgitatedNeighborlyCakeSMOrc
1.10 https://clips.twitch.tv/ImpossibleTangibleTroutArsonNoSexy
1.11 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JyK_TB8-XY
1.12 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phTga0ahkek
1.13 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tj2yuJsAiU

Bug 2
Ghost Throw: Sometimes when you throw your Translocator, whether to get into danger or out of it, it shows the animation for the Translocator but nothing comes out.
Example(s):

2.1 https://gfycat.com/FlashyImpartialAuklet
2.2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1VRDZKdS50&feature=youtu.be
2.3 https://youtu.be/WFNLwu0MDH0?t=6m51s

Bug 3
Lagging Hitbox: Sombra's hitbox lingers whenever she teleports which makes it annoying for evading enemies in close calls.
Example(s):

3.1 https://gfycat.com/WelcomeAccurateElver
3.2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJ3VSH-Z4os
3.4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1VRDZKdS50&feature=youtu.be
3.5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1p3jEqq8OL8&feature=youtu.be
3.6 https://gfycat.com/LoathsomeLazyGlobefish
3.7 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jt2EAcjRX1Q
3.8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhEp8cUdFQo
3.9 https://youtu.be/OtA-GfmmUiA?t=1m24s - This one also is an example of bug 4

Bug 4
Sporadic Camera: When Translocating, the users camera will move in involuntary movements, which would be dangerous in fights.
Example(s):

4.1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_SWx1DyjAk
4.2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCHNtFzoP3E
4.3 https://gfycat.com/UnacceptableShadyKingbird
4.4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoYSDG9GDzI
4.5 http://xboxdvr.com/gamer/twistedSPOON/video/39632886

Bug 5
Delay Camera Movement: When moving with Translocator, the continual movement of the camera would be halted before continually registering the direction of movement.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_AuopcN3d0&feature=youtu.be

Hack Bugs
Bug 6
Sombra Hack Priority: Hack still persists when hacking a Reaper doing Wraith, a Tracer Recalls, or even when someone kills them in a small window you lose your Hack.
Example(s):

5.1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xo4L7UNC2pQ
5.2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gBMmy3t7Os
5.3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22fGKSyfhkk
5.4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u71Ag1C4mDY

5.7 https://plays.tv/video/59f0cc057c1e5c4f65/hack-not-going-off-on-a-mercy-bug-

Bug 7
Hacked Health Pack Removal: Health Pack will still take into account of the timer of the previous Hack and ignore the refresh.
Example(s):
6.1 https://www.reddit.com/r/SombraMains/comments/77woqy/health_pack_doesnt_hack_sombra_bug_lol/

Thanks for taking the time to put this together for us. We'll start checking these out.


When she hacks Hanzo, he still has the equipped arrow ability. Moira gets hack she losses her equipped orb ability.

Also, this is not Sombra but Moira can attack the Payload with her damage beam. Can you please fix that.

Sombra has issue teleporting away from hog's hook. She also has issue teleporting away from Doomfist's punch or any charge. I teleport and it stops.

Last of all, if you hack a Sombra and she teleports. Your hack is wasted. Same if someone dies.

Quick update.

Bug 1 - "Phantom Translocate"
This is an old bug that was fixed last February (Patch 1.8.0)

Bug 2 - "Ghost Throw"
This bug was fixed in Patch 1.14.1

Bug 3 - "Lagging Hitbox"
This bug was fixed in 1.13.0

Bug 6 "Sombra Hack Priority"
We don't consider this a bug. This was the developer comment at the time:
“Keep in mind there is a 0.1s delay before the beam is allowed to break. So if you recall with less than 0.1s left on the hack, it will complete. This is intended (for now...)”

Please let us know if you're still experiencing the "fixed" bugs in the current, live game and we need to revisit them.

We're still looking into the rest of the list.


Jeff, I think we all really appreciate this kind of feedback in the forums. Thanks.

Yes, unfortunately Ghost throw still happens, happened to me just the other day and i remember it happening because i 'threw it' to juke a pharah and jumped into the well on illios to cloak and translocate but the horror in my eyes when i saw that translocator go against the walls of the well while i drop like a hot wet t**d... :' c.
It doesn't happen as often but it does.

The bug that jerks up your camera also happens from time to time.
Most of them are fixed Jeff, but one where if you use "E" just as you die then respawn it will try and teleport you to that location causing a horrible warp of the camera next time you translocate - you can see here.. just as I teleport it tries to put me where my beacon was then corrects itself really throwing you off.

Translocation Linger Position Bug (from today not sure if submitted):
https://streamable.com/57ccp

(Edit): This is the same bug as number 4, but this one actually shows you how its created ^

As someone with 500 hours of Sombra over three accounts I'm still waiting for some potential changes with her making hacked targets more visible I emailed Geoff a few months ago with some feedback.

Thanks for taking the time to put this together for us. We'll start checking these out.


Thanks for taking a look at these bugs. I wanted to add some more details on recreating Bug 4 (Sporadic Camera). I've noticed it happening pretty consistently if I die as Sombra with an active translocator out in the world (as in I died before I was able to translocate). If I then throw out a translocator after respawning, the camera goes haywire and I am turned the wrong direction (which IMO is the worst part of this bug). Specifically, it seems like my post-spawn translocate faces me in the same direction I was facing when I died.

A God amongst men, you.
I'd like to add another Major bug that wasn't included on your list.

Hacked Mercy activates her Ultimate immediately after being hacked. Pay close attention to the Mercy on the enemy team near the end of this game clip.

https://account.xbox.com/en-US/gameclip/f41f7524-f9fd-4741-9300-18eb9fbc3bfd?gamertag=star99er&scid=00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000
also, whenever you throw a translocator while it's still in the air, you teleport behind the translocator a little instead of teleporting on it.

Might be a case of Bug 7. When your hack went through it's roughly six seconds from the EMP.
I've definitely had the ghost throw translocator bug happen to me this November.
Also yes, Ghost throw happens still where your sombra throws beacon but it throws nothing, It's very rare but its still happening in the live version - It's more likely to happen on high latency though - the ghost throw happened today in my stream I'll update this post if my mod can find the part tomorrow.

but tldr; ghost throw still exists but rare pretty sure as someone mentioned above, the throw anim will play but it wont spawn the beacon and the anim just goes back to normal state without throwing anything for any devs reading hehe :)
Nice that we see developers actually taking care of bugs!

Most of them are fixed Jeff, but one where if you use "E" just as you die then respawn it will try and teleport you to that location causing a horrible warp of the camera next time you translocate - you can see here.. just as I teleport it tries to put me where my beacon was then corrects itself really throwing you off.

Translocation Linger Position Bug (from today not sure if submitted):

(Edit): This is the same bug as number 4, but this one actually shows you how its created ^

As someone with 500 hours of Sombra over three accounts I'm still waiting for some potential changes with her making hacked targets more visible I emailed Geoff a few months ago with some feedback.

I'd like to add another Major bug that wasn't included on your list.

Hacked Mercy activates her Ultimate immediately after being hacked. Pay close attention to the Mercy on the enemy team near the end of this game clip.

I'll add these two to the list.

Bug 6 "Sombra Hack Priority"
We don't consider this a bug. This was the developer comment at the time:
“Keep in mind there is a 0.1s delay before the beam is allowed to break. So if you recall with less than 0.1s left on the hack, it will complete. This is intended (for now...)”


Seriously? It's one of the most annoying parts of Sombra for both Sombra AND her hack target.

Not only does it make no thematical sense when it comes to recall, but it's also extremely frustrating for your hack to go on cooldown for a Tracer that's now across the map, or for it to go on cooldown for a Reaper that's already invincible and no longer cares, or for someone who has already died. I want to either hack a Reaper and prevent his escape or I want to have failed to hack him and not go on cooldown, and I don't want my invincibility mechanics to arbitrarily make me not invincible to this one ability after I activate it in time.

Why is this intentional? Who does it improve the game for?

Like, if you think that Sombra needs 0.1 seconds of unavoidable hacking, why not just reduce the time by 0.1 seconds? There's a reason why everyone has always assumed this was a bug. It's because it feels incredibly buggy.

I was kinda surprised when I saw this too. But if we voice our opinions about this and the other bugs, we can get Sombra into her ideal state as a hero.

Is this intended? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bFkP4e3b40&t=1m30s

Also Zarya gets charge from EMPed bubbles.
Unfortunately so, it has to be where the source of the shield comes from, and destruction of bubble HP = instant Zarya Charge.
