Special Operation - Destroyer: Issues With Emitter Beams

Bug report: Special Operation - Destroyer (Tested in Tier V, rank 13-15 PvE scenario) - invisible green emitter beams


I found this issue most common in Tier V (rank 13-15). It’s an old issue or bug. I am not sure, if this bug can also occur in Tier III and Tier IV.

Sometimes, green emitter beams will focus fire continuously on a single target, all at once.

You can hear the sounds and effects, you can see and detect thermal damage, but you can’t see the beams!

This does not always happens, but it’s quite common. Unfortunately, I am always the prime target, if I am in the Wing! My ship’s hull rapidly loses integrity, until my ship is destroyed!


Screenshots: (Green Beam Emitters that can continuously fire through the Destroyer’s shield are sometimes not visible at all)





Logs: (Check for specific timed data - It happened on the first match, in Tier V, rank 13-15; approximate time stamps: 13:30:40-13:31:05 )

Trust me. Those Static Static Shield barriers wouldn’t last more than 1-3 seconds in Tier V. They would be terminated, even before you could reload a new one.

This happens with all AI controlled -things-.

They select targets either randomly or by the closest, and in dreads they will select the first player that deals damage to them. If any given player is too close to them when they spawn, or deals the first damage, they will be the target.


With the lasers I assume this is no different. They just see one player first and direct all fire towards it.


I encountered this bug again today in T4 Spec Ops - Destroyer. It’s still not fixed! Do you need more information or time?

It happened again today!


No sound, no visuals, just thermal damage from the green beams that were “invisible”.

Actual beams that were visible, fired elsewhere, but “not on me”.

I had received damage from at least 8-12 green (invisible) beams.


Screenshot: (Lost around 80% of health in less than 10 seconds!)

If you need more recent data, let me know.

It just happened again today! Check only Tier V Spec Ops.

Tier V only.


Screenshot: No beams are on me, they fire elsewhere, but I am taking all the damage from those beams! My destroyer was destroyed in less than ten seconds.
