Limbo, Arbitration drones and affected enemies

Go to this page to learn about the mechanics discussed here.

 

So, Limbo is known to be really effective in arbitrations, mainly due to the fact that even if enemies affected by arbitration drones enter his Cataclysm, they can still deal no damage to the players inside. Which got me thinking: Since players cannot interact with objects like consoles while in the rift, does that mean that Arbi drones are treated as such? Furthermore, is the effect of the drones to simply turn the enemies into unbreakable and uninteractable moving objects? It's known that if you go into operator mode inside cataclysm, you cannot harm the enemies inside the cataclysm, but you can hack consoles and destroy arbi drones. You can also shoot an arbi drone inside the cataclysm, from outside, and damage it normally. Lastly, you can hack a console in a crewship while in cataclysm, while in operator mode, but you cannot damage it while in your Warframe. What do you guys think about this? Was this intended or is it more spaghetti code, courtesy of DE?

This isn't actually so cut-and-dry. Certain actions (such as putting a datamass into a Mobile Defense, last I tested) are prohibited if you're Banished, but not if you step into a Cataclysm -- presumably because Cataclysm would be an infamous trolling/griefing tool if it had all the same restrictions as Banish

So to revisit your question:

No, Arbitration Shield Drones are actually sharing the coding for Capture Targets. Capture Targets are immune to EVERYTHING except weapon damage and standard procs therein

This sounds like a bug, but it's a bug caused by an intended feature: Z-kids just flat-out cannot exist in the Rift Plane, for whatever reason

khora is a better limbro in arbitrations.  as soon as a drone-connected enemy is in range of strangledome, if it loses connection to the drone, strangledome will grab it and fin. no weird rift interactions necessary. 

also, I was under the impression that while inside limbo's 4, drone attached enemies can and will kill you because drones straight up ignore the rift.
