Why do I randomly lose Anarchy stacks?

  • Why do I randomly lose Anarchy stacks? Prinny Brocka

    When trying out Gaige, the Mechromancer class, I was trying out the Anarchy skill, which adds an "Anarchy" stack every time you kill or reload after emptying your magazine. It's supposed to lose stacks when you reload a non-empty mag or while you're in Fight for your Life.

    However, I found I constantly just lost stacks for no reason. Even after mapping my Reload key so I couldn't press it and not dying, I would randomly find myself with zero stacks. A friend playing in the same game with the skill noticed the same problem, but he was able to gather many many stacks, mine rarely went above 10 before being randomly lost.

    Is there some unstated reason you can lose Anarchy stacks? Is this a bug or is there some logic to how I'm losing stacks?

  • As fbueckert said, it is entirely possible that you're consuming Anarchy to fuel your other skills. If you're shooting while in mid-air, that will consume Anarchy stacks to fuel your Death From Above skill. And melee-ing while you have at least one stack of Anarchy will consume one stack for your With Claws skills (which I'm thinking is a typo of "Witch Claws").

  • There is a known issue with the Anarchy skill that causes Mechromancers in multi-player games who are not the game host to randomly lose their stacks of Anarchy. Also note that you will rapidly lose stacks while in Fight For Your Life mode, and may lose stacks when fueling skills such as Death From Above, Discord, or With Claws.

  • Yeah, this happens when you switch weapons from your backpack to your equipped weapon or it may happen when you switch weapons before you use up an entire clip of ammo. Only when you're not the host.

  • I am playing on Classic difficulty, and where I used to have three Autosaves for a mission, I now only have one (i.e. the same file is rewritten each turn, so I can't go back a turn). Did this setting get changed after a game update, or might this be a bug? I did some googling, but didn't find anything. (I have read about an issue where once you reach 100 saves, your saves are listed out...). The reason I ask is because one autosave is not that useful in a mission; the game is saved at the beginning of my turn, right after one of my guys gets killed. With 2 or 3 autosaves, I can go back

  • With season 4 they enabled Tier dropping against boosted or ebay accounts. While I really find this a good thing I ask myself when you will drop a Tier. I heard that you need the MMR of division 5 below your current Tier (Plat 5 League + Gold 5 MMR + Lose = Drop) and I also have some friends that lost around 15 games in a row (because they have a boosted account) but they didn't drop out of the Tier. Also when you drop, where will you land? Will you be in Division 1 of your current Tier or will you instantly drop to the Tier where your MMR is?

  • there's a weapon's image on the ground, but I can't pick it up - a glitch? Sometimes it seems I pick up ammo instead of being able to pick up the weapon - I guess this is when the weapon is the same as my present one (or maybe some use the same ammo?). Sometimes, it seems like it might be my secondary's ammo. I guess the only thing is to recognize then it's the same weapon. I must have tried over 100...When I'm running and the message "press and hold X for " comes up, and I press it immediately, I always miss it. It works when I anticipate and start holding X before I reach the weapon. But when I

  • I've been building Gaige with the smaller, lighter, faster skills, but now that I've found an Infinity, I'd like to respec so I can use it. However, I don't want to lose all my anarchy stacks. Will respeccing make me lose all my anarchy?

  • Do you get bonus points for unused items such as weapons and shields in 1998 PC version of Centipede? The reason I ask is because I'm trying to beat my old hi-scores on maps. If you do get bonus points for unused items then how many points do you get for each of the items? The only thing I know is that you don't get bonus points for unused shields. Any ideas?

  • and the smelting will take some time. When I save and reload the world during that time, the item, or it's product, will still be in the furnace, but the associated request does not exist anymore. So the item will stay in the furnace. When I request another item from the same crafting logistics pipe, the pipe will instantly pull the already smelted item out of the furnace but another one of the item needed... necessary items may arrive at different times and there is a time frame where reloading the world would get some of the items "lost". There are also other reasons for this to happen. E.g.

  • In Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, what happens when you fall to your death? I've done it many, many, many times and I just seem to pick up when I left off... I think I lose energy, but I'm not sure? Does it count as a continue? (Does the game even track the number of times I have continued after dying?) Does it depend on the difficulty level? Or is it just perfectly A-Ok to fall to your death, there's no effect on the game at all?

  • When I initially heard of the PSN outage, I thought it would be no big deal for me. After all, I don't play a lot of multiplayer or online games on that system. For that matter, it's been awhile since I've played any games on the PS3. Most of the time I'm just using it for... oh... right... Netflix. Why there is any reason for me to log into PSN to use Netflix is beyond me. For some reason it's required, but at the same time content will still load in the background even if I don't log in. I found that out myself on accident today, while trying to cancel the login and get back

  • I'm wondering if it's possible to reload after opening the chest, (such as by quitting the game from the PS3 menu) and still keep your Golden key. I know you won't be able to keep the weapons you found inside, but will you be able to keep the key, or is it tied to your account and lost permanently the moment you use it? I ask because I don't want to open the chest and find a shotgun and a pistol, and be stuck with really nice weapons I detest, but I'm afraid that if I test it I could lose the key AND the weapons by exiting the game without saving. Just wondering if anyone had tried it.
