HUD disappearing in the Exploiter Orb fight [Investigating]

Recommended Posts

Also happened to me and one of my squad-mates. We did two runs with me as host, the first time my hud disappeared, the other time it was my squaddies.

The HUD keeps disappearing every time I go in solo. Just had one run where this didn't happen. Tried twice in a squad and the issue didn't come up. Doesn't seem to be triggered by entering options. Bringing up the map during stage 2 shows nothing except for the map controls on the bottom, and locks the entire screen. Pressing options twice will free you again.

"So may have found a temp workaround for the HUD disappearing. After you put in your thermia, go into your archwing until after your HUD reappears. Sometimes the HUD doesn't even temp disappear like it's supposed to when you use your archwing. We tried it 5 times and never got our HUD perma'd.  

This HUD disappearing glitch only seems to happen to my friends and I as a client, not as host and either we got lucky or there might be something to this.

 

Also, clients can not see the Ice Effects over her vents in phase 1, only the host can. 

 

During phase 2, only the host can damage her weak spots with their guns. The only way we've been able to damage her as a client is by using our operator amps secondary fire, (shrakson? or however it's spelled is the only one we've tested) while under her belly and firing up at her."

 

Sorry for any repeat info, but just copied and pasted so I didn't have to type any of it again.

This workaround kills the bug every time. Why haven't anyone upvoted this?

So I not only solo-ed exploiter today, I even did it without an HUD. 

Unfortunately, without the HUD, i couldn't tell exactly how far I was and got blown up, having used up all my revives. 

Support told me that they need a successful multiplayer session to restore ONE item that would have been given (emphasis theirs).

I'm unfortunately stuck now. All the time spent, the diluted thermia, the potential drops all gone. All because of a silly bug (not referring to the orb here) that should have been squashed quickly. 

HUDs are part of the basic functionality of the game no?

So today I did the exploiter orb and I did it in a group of 4, we did it 2 times for now and both times my hud would completely disappear the second the door to the boss opens, it wouldn't come back until I was back in Fortuna.

Anyone else got this and knows a fix?

it does it a lot and the only way ive been able to fix it is if people leave the group which isnt the ideal solution or sometimes trying to walk out the entrance works other than that its based on luck if it breaks or not

During the exploiter orb fight I have encountered multiple bugs from UI to being unable to load the map in the second phase of the fight. The HUD completely vanishing is a regular problem but it seems to only happen at the start of the fight after you insert the diluted thermia, it seems to happen more often if someone is under the rock that the orb is unable to hit you but could also be if the "intro cutscene" takes to long to load. Another problem is the loading from the first phase of the fight to the outer second phase as there are times when in a group it fails to load at all, seems to fix itself if a team member leaves the squad, does not happen while alone. Final problem that I can report is that the Gorgaricus sacs can spawn multiple times right in front of the door to fortuna after fighting the orb multiple times, not on a mushroom but just floating in the air and they cant be destroyed.

Just did the orb for the first 2 times today and it happened both times to me. This is ridiculous that this has not been fixed in several months. Would be nice if the devs could acknowledge this in this thread and provide some kind of time frame on a fix.

Hey Tenno! We are aware of this issue, we do not have a timeline for a fix, but we are investigating! 

Our current theory is that this issue only occurs if you load into Orb Vallis directly and not if you select the bounty in Fortuna and enter Orb Vallis through the elevator.

I realize this maybe isn't so helpful since it's anecdotal, but I can say that 100% of the time when I do the exploiter I do it via the bounty picker in Fortuna.  100% of the time lately I've loaded in and no one else has loaded in (even after waiting for several minutes before heading towards the exploiter, I am set to public) and about half the time while soloing it my UI disappears to various degrees.  I think the UI vanishing always triggers after the first part of the fight while loading to go back outside for the last part of the fight.  I vaguely remember it happening while playing in a squad too but that was right around release (before the bounty picker existed for it).  This is all PS4, occurred most recently probably 3 or 4 weeks ago.
