    Problem about doable at all or bugged?

    Hello everyone!

    so after trying to create an account for the forum for banner saga 2 (impossible, tried everything) and having lost like half an hour, i created an account here. Though my question rather concerns BS2, i post it here, beeing unable to post on the other forum.

    I am currently at the tent training exercise where i have to make use of thread of the needle. Despite the fact that i have always thought Alena to be a very weak character (no fix here, i will end up killing her), i just couldn't kill her in BS1 - what father should be doomed to watch his child die? Now i am faced with the training exercise having to make use of thread of the needle.

    "Damage 2 enemies at once with Thread of the Needle" it says. So i do, i click the "special action" buttion, thread of the needle, there are 3 ennemies in front of me, i shoot - and nope, only the guy in front of me gets hurt. Hell, i even went to point-blank once just to try, no luck.

    Any advice? Is this doable at all or bugged?
    Thank's a lot!

    Hello there, and welcome This is the "official" community of all the games of The Banner Saga franchise, so, you're in the right place!

    What you're describing with Thread the Needle ability definitely sounds like a bug... When you activate the ability (hit the purple button), do the HUD highlight the potential targets in the four cardinal directions, with purple-bordered tiles? A screenshot would help here. I suppose this also happens to regular battles (or training battles) when you bring Alette? Or only in the Training Scenarios?

    Um, yes. I forgot to mention that: The target unit you select (in 1 to 5 tiles from where Alette is standing) will be the last one to get hit, along with all the others in front of it. Stoicmom to the rescue?

    Just to make sure - the 3 enemies in front of you are in front if you in a line going away from you, not in a line across your front, right? I.e. they are lined up away from you in a row?
