Mission 7.2 - Laying the Trap

6 posts in this topic

I'm tearing my hair out trying to beat this mission. It's a normal mission with enemies and turrets and it's on rails to a degree but I always get to a point and then fail it.

I've not died, I've killed as many enemies as possible but I keep hitting some sort of fail state and I don't know why. Nothing about the level suggests another goal. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

The clear objective is to destroy 60% of hostile so it should just be that you aren't destroying enough. It's unfortunate the game doesn't tell you what percent you're at. There are a couple 80 and 90 objectives that I can't seem to get.

You'd think so but when the mission ends the 60% objective is green, like I've beaten it.  Plus I've got missiles at level 9 and weapons at 7 (with a 20% boost) so I'm killing everything I see.

 

Proper annoying!

That's really weird, do the other two show as cleared? Maybe the mission is bugged and it needs the bonuses to be completed. Unlikely but the game needs bugs worked out for sure.

Mystery solved.  It turns out it wasn't bugged (and I was misreading the results screen).  I thought I was pretty highly leveled by this point but the game chooses this moment to make the enemy ships much more durable.

 

So even though I was successfully targeting every ship, I wasn't destroying them.  To beat this I switched to the railgun and went slower and that got me there.  In fact I got all three objectives.

 

Not great game design to be honest (it should have a counter at least for this objective and shouldn't be so much trickier than previous missions) but it's done now and I'm on the final mission.

I haven't achive the level, but, what the problem with the Iridium crystals? I'm playing in PS4, the tracing of PS5 say something? There's a mission os 4th level with 31 crystals, so...
