Offhand attack roll (not the damage roll) does not include ability modifier. Is this a bug or what?

No, you need to take two-weapon Fighting as either a Ranger or Fighter in order to get the ability modifier damage on the off-hand attack.

What were you playing?

Ha sorry, doing too many things. Yeah it should get the modifier to hit. Can you provide more detail though? Weapons? Class?

Ah, you must have the dual wielder feat as well.

TBH I have seen this as well where my offhand to hit will drop to something ridiculously low.

According to the PHB - You do add both your proficiency bonus and your ability modifier to the attack roll of your off-hand attack with two weapon fighting. But it sounds like this may be a bug.

Can you report this or do you want me to? Do you have a screen grab of the combat log?

You can report it because you experienced the same issue!

On a related note, the off-hand attack gets no bonus to attack roll if the target is prone.
I've no visual proof, but have tested several times with a battlemaster which had the two weapon fighting style and the dual wielder feat. Main hand attack : succesful tripping attack; offhand attack : 40% to hit.
