So i foung a bug while playing plague star...

If i port the drone out of bounds with Nova, the drone will instantly teleport to the Objective. And now my question, if i port the drone out of bounds unintentionally , and this can happen a lot, is it still bug abuse?

Or can i get banned even though i am not abusing it and just doing it by accident?

You may get an automated trade ban if you are completing the objectives faster than the game expects is possible but other than that I doubt anything would come from this unless one of the DE staff decide to be mean.

No one here can tell you for sure. 

We are just other players. 

If you are really worried don't do it on purpose to be safe. 

What no one here can do is tell you with 100% confidence that there is no chance of any consequences.

Only a member of support could do that and by the time they get back to you it will be patched/or the event will be over most likely. Take your own risks.

anyone know if Switch Teleport still works on the drone? I remember it used to during the first plague Star but I can't remember if they patched it out or not.

  • Fixed a precise Loki Switch Teleport on the Plague Star Escort Drone resulting in ability to skip most of the third Bounty stage.

Looks like they JUST got around to fixing it.

Rebecca clarified, sounds like it might not be as bad as it sounded at first. You can still use Switch Teleport on the Drone, they just weren't clear at first and confused people. It was actually a very specific exploit where one single switch tele could skip the whole thing.

seriously? could they at LEAST increase the speed of the drone so that the third stage doesn't take so long. it's not like we wouldn't be able to keep up with it if it went faster, we're freaking ninjas after all... smh

That's a sniper tower exploit to get it stuck, players are just finding normal ways to get the drone to the objective quicker, not much difference from sending a player via it.

The sniper tower exploit never heard of it but that is an exploit for sure.

I have a feeling my video knocked it under the map at that particular spot normally it just pushes it forward a bit, after reading some more posts, it was a once off thing, I hope they haven't stopped my rocket method, still need it to get the stupid drone from getting stuck, even though it's meant to be fixed it still stops. 

It was funny though even by accident it happened, I don't go out of my way looking exploits that's plain wrong. 

Edit:
Yep, after reading some more they just fixed the exploit some naughty players were doing to bypass the stage.

I keep randomly finding the drone teleporting back across the map if it was too high off the ground after a switch teleport. Game acts like it does when your frame falls into water and puts you back down on the last area you were on the ground.

Other than that Switch porting has worked fine for me. I'd run 100 metres ahead of the drone, port it, then catch up with kiddo dash. 

I'm consistently doing bounty runs in 8 or 9 minutes solo, though I'm not adding hemacytes into the mix, they take up too much time solo to be worth the pittance e of standing you get from them.

I wonder if the stims and wisp motes work on it. I know they work on loid.

To my knowledge they do not, though they definitely should. Wisp's Motes and even Volt's Speed should be no-brainers for this sort of things, but for some reason they're disallowed from even having a lower scaled effect on them.

With the right loadout you can manage solo in 11 -12 minutes with all 4 hemocytes too.

I could probably pull it off with my Fulmin, I just know I'll eat my keyboard in irritation waiting for 4 of those things to lumber out each bounty instead of 1 😂

I do all 4 solo, I've found when you have a lot of infested on the ground I jump into archwing (Elytron) for a second and drop a nuke,(Warhead) it kills them all and can bump the counter up a couple of levels, when you kill a Hemocyte if you get it right the next one is walking out of the boil already while the one just killed is still doing it's death dance.

I just Rhino Prime (yaye it's got a use) and my Acceltra (viral) once armour is removed like I've done for every Plague Star event.

The best bit about this years is Invigorations my Rhino got a great roll, +200% Ability Strength and +75 Ability Efficiency.

That gives me a Strength 490% and a Roar Damage Increase os 245.25%, Eff 175% so Roar lasts for 58.2 seconds which is long enough so I'm loving it.

I use the time between Hemacytes to sweep mobs with the Fulmin to refresh the arcane buffs.

My main issue is the last hemacyte wasting time doing literal nothing. I'll have one head left and it just wont open 🤦‍♀️

Me doing it, notice my purg numbers.

Always do the sickle head first or it sits around you'll see me doing it in my video.

I started trying to bait sickle head first as that was the one being a troll earlier on. 

I might try getting Eclipse on Loki and see how much of a boost I get. No point doing roar as I'm running 40% strength to amp up switch teleport range
