Oh man. Let’s talk about drone blocking! Spoilers for anyone who’s yet to encounter the fourth type of Threat…
[spoiler]So, I decided I was done exploring the current derelict and just wanted to collect the scrap and leave. Completely confident, I typed “open all” (which I NEVER DO) to ease my gathering, and directed all of my drones back to my docked ship.
…Except I’d forgotten about a contained radiation leak, which immediately starts spreading through the ship like wildfire. With my generator drone now on his way home, I can’t close the doors again.
“That’s ok,” I think. “I can outrun this.” Whereupon my lead drone discovers that the single corridor connecting to my ship is now packed with slime.
My solution: The third drone in my cramped queue of drones has a turret, but being in range of the slime requires me to creep drone no. 1 forward, then no. 2, then no. 3, then activate the turret, then do the entire process again, OVER AND OVER AGAIN. It turned Duskers into The Typing of the Dead. I failed to escape before the radiation leak caught me and I lost the entire campaign.[/spoiler]
