Overwatch 2 bugged?

Overwatch works perfectly, any time an enemy comes within 2 spaces, you or your companion shoots at the nearing enemy. Works perfectly...

Overwatch 2, however, for Louis Le Bisque, he fires only when an enemy comes inside his range.
Louis Le Bisque has a range of 5, so if an enemy comes within 5 steps, he will get an overwatch shot. Not sure if this is intended being such a long range and never within 2 spaces, but at least his shots are consistent.

Overwatch 2 on Bonnie Anne, is definitely bugged however. Her overwatch range is also expanded to 5, but she will not always use overwatch when enemies breech this distance. It is useless to give Bonnie Anne this talent as you may get 1 shot with many incoming enemies. This has happened many times and can easily be verified that this talent on Bonnie Anne is indeed bugged.

Please fix this talent as I believe it is intended to always shoot at enemies within 2 range, not 5, however, it would be nice for them to get first within 5 as ranged stop and don't usually come closer and melee do.

Has anyone else noticed this bug or this talent being bugged on any other companions?

Hi! Have you tried using the Overwatch talent on the Test Realm? From the recent Update Notes:

  • The Overwatch Talent now triggers consistently when two squares away from the incoming target for all ranks of the talent.
