    Yo has anyone had all the aliens at the boss alien? when i was capturing the beacons all the aliens keeping poping up and killed me 4 times. it wasnt like this before. One of my friend already did it and hasnt seen those aliens. i need explaination
  3. Your friend did easy gate, you did normal. Normal is harder than easy with added challenges on final stage, such as slow mines and npcs that spawn

    There's also a bug or something with that Plutus boss ship itself. I finished the circles, doing the rest of the NPC and suddenly I got slowed by the plutus (like a saboteur slow) and it charged at me and destroyed me instantly. I was full HP (~600k). Mention: I used EMP and InstaShiled immediately after I got slowed, but with no effect. Also, I destroyed all the warhead ships, so they were not present.

    Mention 2: this is the third time I try to complete the gate (Normal) and the same exact thing happens over and over again. Is this a bug? How am I supposed to finish the gate if I get one-shot'd by that Boss?

    Got it! I finally understood what was happening: after the mine towers are down and the Plutus Boss begins the chase, it will spawn like 6-7 Warhead rockets that overlap. They fly one above the other and it appears as only one single rcket, but in fact there are 6 or 7. Here's where the damage was coming from, after the slow. Also, the Plutus is very large and covers these rockets.

  5. In the normal gate last year and the year prior to that the aliens did not spawn with the boss like they do this year... just a pointless change to the gate that was never required... still have to restart the entire stage when you get destroyed which is terrible to keep making you work even harder for minuscule rewards while making it unnecessarily harder for players that are not that strong yet were able to do this gate before this unnecessary change... and you require doing the normal version of the gate to qualify for fastest times which those who have cheated their way to 35+ level 16+ prom lasers will dominate with the fastest times so not worth the effort and ammo etc. anymore to get a time that charts now the final stage has been unnecessary changed and made more difficult... that's the company little pointless for you... always ruining things... :(:rolleyes:

    If you do struggle a little with the unnecessarily added aliens on the boss stage then just shoot them until they fly off to the corners and then you will be able to focus on the boss... while shooting them, work on the beacons and use energy leach to keep your hit points up and keep an eye out of the war heads and destroy them... you actually do not require destroying the aliens, unless you want the tiny amounts of uri from them, as they will auto destruct when the boss is destroyed...
