Is it just me, or does anyone else find the level 4 'Damsel in distress' deadspace mission really buggy. Sad

I’ve done it twice now, first I take out the smaller group of rats which is no problem. But when I attack Zor and his bunch things go totally weird. I suddenly start getting hit by a continuous stream of cruise missiles from ‘unknown’ which appear from thin air in space – luckily they appear to do no damage to me at all?!?. ugh Also, at this point distance seems to go mental – a rat showing at 50km wont lock because its really at 90km for example. And sometimes I find myself webbed but with no rats anywhere near me. It’s very dangerous when it gets like this and I’ve had to warp out before now as my shields have taken a hammering from unknown and unlockable sources.

Anyone else had this problemQuestion

No, I haven't

I ran it twice yesterday - the stream of Cruise come from Zor himself, but not had any other bugs

Watch for the merc wingman respawning - they do nasty damage and show up white on the overview.

Is very weird - the stream of cruise seem to do no damage to me at the time they hit - and jesus, do enought of them hit me! I then seem to take the damage sometime after - which is a tad dangerous.

I seem to get this distance bug quite often atm - even in normal missions i often find a container that is shoing under 1km away is actually 3 or 4km away so I can't open the thing.

But with this mission it all seems to go nuts! ugh

This is most likly a grid problem with you or the npc going off grid.

Yesterday was a really horrible lag day, maybe that had something to do with it. If I'm badly lagged and try firing missiles, they too seem to spawn not from my ship but somewhere else entirely - often taking longer to arrive.

when missiles spawn from where they shouldn't b, its normally a lag thing.

need to b careful of it as it can happen to both urs and the npc ships.

i get it quite often on pirate extravaganza, the last BS....

if ur using a raven it isn't quite as troublesome and generally ur missiles will hit regardless eventually, but first time i did it was with an apoc, and it became a real problem.

I couldn't tell how far from the npc i was, as all information was wrong, so was having to guess by what dmg and how often i was hitting to choose my crystals.

be especially careful if the npc gets stuck on sumthing (large collidable object) in ur view, as its half likely that they r not really, and r still approaching u.

as for the constant spam of cruise missiles,
zor does fire a lot of those, so if ur seeing new ones aswell as his ones, then strange...but then take note of the timing between the unknown ones and zor's ones, if they hit at the same time each time after zor's would normally hit u, then they r just his.
if ur seeing these bugged ones, and not his ones, then their just his ones bugged....
