Are skill shots bugged?

Just curious because I've been playing Varus a lot for my guide and I've noticed sometimes that his ultimate and Q will go through enemies at times and not hit, even though it's clearly straight through the character. o.O

I've noticed it with linear skill shots on other characters. I've seen Ezreals Q, Lee sins, and other various skill shots like that just miss for absolutely no reason when you'd think that logically, they hit because they went THROUGH the enemy.


Anyone got any ideas on this?

I don't think it's bugged. Like sometimes, when you shoot something and it goes the wrong way because your mouse moved is probably the only thing that is bugging (see what I did there xD) me about skillshots.


If it goes through them, then yeah, probably bugged. Report it in the bugs section of the forums ^^

Often, the animation goes through but the skillshot does hit! Like lee's Q
If it seems to hit, its likely a visual glitch. However, sometimes there are bugs. Retrace your steps and try to reproduce it. Thats the only way for Riot to help.

I don't know, it seems like it's just the animation clipping through I guess. I tried to see whats wrong in a custom game, and it seems like the hitboxes on Varus's Q and ultimate are not as wide as the animation suggests. They did say they "hotfixed" and issue with Q not hitting at max range, and they did just change the animation for Chain of Corruption maybe that has something to do with it.

sometimes on ashe's arrow it looks as if it went through but it still stuns and does damage. I think it's a visual bug but it shouldn't have to big of an effect on gameplay

No this is about skill shots going through people and doing nothing. But on further inspection, it's just that I misjudged the hitbox on the new particles for his ultimate.

Sometimes it may just be move priority, and your skill shots miss because their move has an invisible hit frame, kind of like rock paper scissors.
