Anti-bio beam not dealing damage?

by GC13 » Sat Sep 29, 2012 2:53 am

I just had an encounter with a Rock Scout, one with two Rock crewmen but no medbay and only one layer of shields. I managed to kill it with my one Dual Laser, timing my attacks so I dropped the shields with the laser then used the Anti-Bio Beam right after, sweeping it over both of the crew members.

I'm using the Slug Cruiser, so I couldn't see whether their hp was dropping but I definitely knew where in the ship to aim at. There's no way I hit them less than ten times with the beam and neither crewman moved from their spots. The one thing I could think might cause this is if the beam doesn't damage the squares it starts and ends on, then I could see how neither of them died.

I had the exact same thing. Rockmen again, Rock ship afair, shields down, no medbay, hit them a good dozen times with the bio beam and they kept on ticking. I was hitting them right on the money all the time.

Rockmen are able to be hurt by the anti-bio beam, right? I could have sworn I had killed at least crew member on a Rock Scout already with the anti-bio beam.

Yes. I've killed the exact same ship with the exact same configuration in previous times, just one time they did not want to die.

So is it just us two, or have other people had to deal with this?

I have seen it where the anti bio beam won't do damage to some crew members from certain angels.
send me a message with a link if you see spam and I will take care of it.

The hitbox is a definitely a bit finicky along the start and end of the beam in my experience.

Are antipersonnel and repair drones affected by anti-bio beam? AFAIK slugs can't tell living beings from onboard drones.

No drone bay, thus, no drones.
