Yeah everything vaguely explosive counts including flashbangs.

For some, like gas grenades it doesn't make sense. But stuff like shredstorm cannons are so destructive and loud they should activate every pod on the map.

I know how to pronounce 'Xshathra' properly.

I think it's just supposed to be 'very loud noises', but honestly normal gunfire is loud as gently caress anyways so it's arbitrary.

I always likened the Lost activation thing to being brought on by the concussive effect of popping a grenade / car / suspiciously explosive generator. They're supposed to have a hive mind, right? It's like a pulse in a cluster pings a bunch of lost entities at once, whereas taking them down one by one is a much less notable ping for the hive.

Yeah, but trust me, that many Lost on the map would make most missions impossible

Lost World should be the way the game works by default imo.

There was a bug that makes lost world continue being effective until you get a mission specifically with a lost related sitrep, and it loving owned. I won a ton of missions by camping on top of ladders and just devastating the map with explosives Advent would be too busy trying to swim through the 20 or so lost surrounding them that I'd pick them off, mop up the lost, and hit the extraction point.

I am the real hero here.


One of the Chosen stole my best Ranger like four months ago. Am I supposed to get a Rescue mission by now or is it simply RNG? That Ranger had the Chosen Assassin's items I've already killed all three Chosen, did I gently caress up?

Lost his leg in Robo War I


Ah goddamnit, I was struggling to put together a squad to assault the chosen assassin after suffering a full wipe on a supply run mission, and was one day away from healing my last guy up, when the chosen assaulted the Avenger.
