Whats the deal with midrange deadeye?

I am leveling up a sharpshooting shot creator. So midrange deadeye is a key badge.

I'm constantly shooting and making contested midrange shots but it never fires and I never get credit for it. I only seem to be able to raise it with drills. Is that because difficult shots is firing and they don't stack?

Seems very limited as a badge if it only triggers on standstill shots.

Yeah, it seems like dead-eye only triggers if it is "Heavily contested"

Midrange Deadeye triggers only on heavily contested shots but including moving shots. Most shot creators never see it because the only difficult shots they take are when they turbo to baseline...;-)

It seems to be bugged. I had it trigger on some shots lately ingame but didnt get any xp for it after the game. So yeah sucks completely because you can only raise it via practice.

Yes this just happened to me. Very frustrating.

I always make the first, "Contested Shots" or what its called. I dont know if its intended but the shots dont even have to be contested at all. Its just 10 midrange shots, make at least 6/10 and youll get safe 1200xp.

Are you sure you still get 1200? I know you used to, at least when I did the grind. But my friend just made a shot creator and it's more like 900 something now, I think.

I know for damn certain some drills used to get you 1200 but it changed.

Yeah it's 960. Just checked. Used to be 1200.
Why they felt the need to change this, I do not know.......
