Le Monarque Bugged?

I picked up the bow on Wednesday, and after playing around with it for a while, something about it seems immediately off: the poison DOT effect when enemies are hit doesn’t always activate when bow is fully pulled back. The dragonfly-like effect from precision shot kills, and its resulting poison cloud, also doesn’t seem to activate consistently as well. This is probably why people are saying it isn’t that great. It would be a much more enjoyable weapon if the effects would activate consistently instead of randomly. If this is a genuine bug, remedy this soon please. If not, then please rework it; this has potential to be a really fun weapon. EDIT: Many of you have been commenting that I am either not using the bow properly or unaware that of the perfect shot. I want to mention that I am aware of the perfect shot via its audio cue (the cue being it makes the bow sound similar to an actual gun (almost like malfeasance) than a bow). Also, in Patrick Casey’s review of the bow, he makes a comment about the inconsistent poison effect being applied. the video in question: https://youtu.be/x_LxhlyOURY

    I laugh at all the people that don’t play with vibration enabled. You can feel it as soon as the bow is ready to be released and works every time. “I don’t use it cause I’m a pro player”... alright bud sure you are.

      I have noticed the same issues. Even with precision hits it does not always activate and I know that it’s been fully drawn.

    • I've been noticing this recently as well. You're not wrong, the people saying you are probably havent experienced it yet.

    • The dragonfly effect def does not always activate for me and ive had the poison fail as well. Kinda lame its a void bow. Wouldve been a great solar bow since the only solar bow you can get is from LW.

    • Just so you know, the sights briefly light up signifying a perfect draw.

    • Works for me. Pull it, hold it for a split second, release it. Theres a joke there somewhere.

      • Its not on a full draw, it is on a perfect draw. When you pair it with oatkeepers the dot always activates. You need to fire the arrow immediatelly after a full draw. The window time is quite small

        • Yeah, I have been experiencing it as well, I get the critical hit, I see the guardian being poison damage, but no cloud, at times it especially when the enemy is group up is when it does not want to work properly, yet in PvE I don't see the consistency that it is in PvP.

        • I haven’t had much issue getting the poison to activate. If I do, it’s because I’m firing too fast.

        • If you hold it back for more then a second I lose poison arrow unless you’re using oathkeepers. You need a precision hit to spread poison. A non precision hit only poisons the target you hit.

          I’m not big into bows but as soon as I started using Le Monarque, it became my favorite. I did notice that the poison seems inconsistent and I haven’t used the bow enough to figure out what’s going on with that. The weapon still feels powerful enough that I would actually use it instead of my usual hand cannon or breakneck auto rifle. 2 thumbs up for Le Monarque.

          The arrow becomes poisonous if you release it immediately after full draw. If you wait longer to release, it cancels that perk.

        • I know you said you know about perfect shot but consider latency is never perfect, a second too early it won't happen and even after that audio cue it lasts a very short time. You have to fire almost immediately after that full pull back or it goes away. The timing is much harder than say shoulder charge or handheld supernova activation period. People just aren't used to needing this good of timing. It's like a perfect active reload in Gears of War.

        • I've noticed this too but I chalk it up to the fact that bows do have a few frames before perfect shot is active but the damage is still it's highest. Super weird stuff.

        • Its called 'Perfect Shot'. The dot and AoE only activate on a perfect shot which is when the bow is fully drawn, and a couple of seconds after. If you hold a fully drawn bow for long it loses charge and damage. You can easilly test this with the Oathkeeper hunter exotic, which holds perfect shot infinately, and so too the poison dot.

        • I have no problem using it as intended. You have to release it immediately upon a full draw. Keep drawing the bow and watch the tip light up then go dark again. That's your window to fire.

            • According to a review of it on YouTube there's an audio cue to it

            • I don’t think it’s bugged but it does have a very specific window in which you have to release the arrow. With Oathkeepers that perfect draw is indefinite but you still need to wait for the flash and audio cue before releasing to get the poison. Since I got it to drop I haven’t taken it off my Hunter or Warlock; haven’t given my Titan that much love recently haha

              It only activates on a perfect draw. There's a small window with all bows where if you release the arrow at the right time it does bonus damage (i.e. on No Turning Back/Subtle Calamity, a full draw does 142 damage, but a perfect draw does 151 damage.) The reason why Le Monarque's poison always procs with Oathkeepers is because Oathkeepers always give the perfect draw bonus, even on a full draw.

              It’s not bugged. It’s timing-based. You have to release the arrow while the sight is still glowing yellow to proc the poison arrow effect. It’s also teaching you the release timing for best damage and accuracy.

              • Just to let you guys know after experimenting oathkeepers let you hold the draw permanently and always apply poison

                • This seems to happen with lots of perks. Sometimes firefly just decides to not work, which has led to many Dul Incaru wipes.
