Sentinel Shield (and swords?) vs Machine Guns

I'm posting to bring some attention to a bug I've noticed frequently in Gambit and Crucible. For some reason, there is an odd interaction between Sentinel shield block and machine gun fire. In about [b]2-4 shots [/b]from the machine gun, the shield fades away like it had just taken the full force of a Golden Gun. I believe this must be a bug, considering how it takes 3 shots from the Legend of Acrius to completely use up sentinel shield energy. Same goes for some other heavy hitters which make sense like the Wardcliff Coil and The Prospecter. But for a legendary machine gun to surpass that damage in just a few shots is [b]ludicrous[/b]. This has been in the game at least since the Hammerhead was released, so I believe it's time to fix this interaction to finally bring some peace to Sentinel Titans in Gambit. Another odd interactions is that of sword blocking against machine guns. When the Stronghold Titan gauntlets came out, I decided to put them to the test in Gambit. While I was playing, I thought an invader with a machine gun was about to end me when I noticed that the machine gun was doing [b]extremely insignificant [/b]damage to me while I was blocking. Poor guy must have emptied a [i]mag and a half[/i] from his Hammerhead before I finally went down. As entertaining as that is and a way to no longer feel extremely scared of machine guns, I know thats probably not how that fight should go. That's all I have to say on this bug report. I can answer any and all questions the best I can regarding this topic. I haven't captured any video footage of this in action, but I can assure you that those interactions are bugged and I look forward to seeing it fixed in the (hopefully) near future.
