DD unable to evade projectile heavies?

Trying to 100% A5 and just have the collector left. Was fighting with DD 5/50 max sig and messed up dashing away on a heavy attack. Collector hit me and dead. Just curious if this is working as intended? I haven’t tested against other heavies like sparkles or anything. I know he evades dominos medium attack so thought it was odd he didn’t evade a projectile heavy. Maybe because it isn’t a physical attack? Not sure whether his sig specifies that.... I may be able to answer my own question lol

Ok, looked over and tested, it doesn’t specify energy or physical attacks, and does not evade first hit on IMIW heavy nor sparkles.

    This was within first 10-15 seconds of fight

    Right, so if it decays over time, (I don't remember exactly how it works) he may be at 95% within the first 10 seconds. Low probability to get hit, but still possible.

    Tested on other champs as well through duels, so my question remains... is this working as intended? Is DD supposed to be able to evade projectile heavies or not?

    Im dont Think colotyer hevry is a projtilone either
  • So ...
    Collector's heavy is not a projectile. Neither is Stark spider heavy.

    IW IM abilities state that enemies can't evade his repulsor attacks.
    So , working as intended

    Which champ have you tested it on?

    Collectors heavy is a headbutt that isnt a projectile. Regardless, like another person said, you suffer from more & more ability reduction as the fight goes on. Your 100% chance to evade goes down a % every second.

    Collectors heavy definitely goes beyond a head but as he can strike from a distance with the projectile beam of light that comes out. Stark spidey heavy is described as “webshot”, shot being the operative part of the word. So why can’t he evade that? IMIW was an oversight on my part, thank you for pointing that out

    Like I mentioned too, neither of them are projectiles.
    And to add here too, Modok's heavy is also not a projectile.

    No heavies are projectiles.

    But you’re wrong, at very least in the case of sparky. His heavy is actually described as a “webshot”, the same term used to describe his sp2.
    Seems odd that DD can evade projectile medium from domino and yondu, but he is unable to avoid heavies.
  • DaphboyDaphboy Posts: 174
    I mean, he has so few uses anyway, just silly to limit his evade in that way
  • It really is not a projectile ...
    The way is described is irrelevant. How it acts is what really matters. Anyways, this was also confirmed not to be a projectile on his spotlight discussion thread

    Irrelevant what it’s described as, it’s what it’s considered to be in-game.

    He can evade yondus Heavy iirc so it’s not that he can’t evade projectile heavies, it’s that the ones you mention aren’t projectiles

    Then only heavy that has an evadable projectile I can think of is Yondu. Have you tried testing against him?

    The collectors heavy attack doesn’t have a “projectile” beam of light. I know the animation you’re talking about but there’s nothing in the collectors heavy that is a projectile.

    Yondu vs OG DD during combos.. DD evades Yondu's 1st and 3rd Light Attack’s (non-contact one’s). Very annoying if you are the Yondu in this fight. Even if Parry DD, parry normally would end before 3rd Light (even when you get past the 1st Light because he's stunned initially).
    Not related to Heavies being mentioned, just interesting if you run into an arena matchup some time.

    Dude don’t get worked up too much over it. It sucks but that’s kabam life.

    He evades what Kabam wants him to evade.
