Loop for drawing lines breaks too early for seemingly no reason

Hello there, i have this code that’s supposed to aim and preview the trajectory of a projectile before shooting it using a Line2D and raycasts. It should draw a line that reflects in the walls 5 times, but the reflecting only happens 0-3 times at random angles, and i don’t know why.

here is a link with what is going on at the moment,

And here’s the code.

func get_predicted_path(player):

if Input.is_action_pressed("left"):
	rotation_degrees -= 1
if Input.is_action_pressed("right"):
	rotation_degrees += 1
var starting_point : Vector2
var end_point : Vector2
var normal : Vector2
var reflect : Vector2
var bounces = 0
points = []
var space_state = get_world_2d().direct_space_state
var result

while bounces < max_bounces: #max_bounces = 5
	if starting_point == Vector2.ZERO and end_point == Vector2.ZERO and normal == Vector2.ZERO:
		#defines the starting values for the loop
		starting_point = global_position 
		end_point = global_position.direction_to(gun_tip.global_position) * diagonal
		result = space_state.intersect_ray(starting_point, end_point, [player])
		if result.empty(): break
		end_point = result.position
		normal = result.normal
		reflect = (starting_point - end_point).reflect(normal) * diagonal
		#now the loop begins "for real"
		result = space_state.intersect_ray(end_point, end_point + reflect, [player])
		if result.empty(): break
		starting_point = end_point
		end_point = result.position
		normal = result.normal
		reflect = (starting_point - end_point).reflect(normal) * diagonal
		#adds the calculated point in space to an array
	bounces += 1

func _draw() -> void:
trajectory.clear_points() #trajectory is a line2D
for i in points.size(): #goes through all the calculated points and draws the line

When i print the points, it only returns a 2 or 3 element array depending of the angle. I think that for some reason some of the raycasts are not returning the collision against my tilemap, thus, breaking the loop too soon, but i have no idea why this is happening.
