Outer Rim mission, Don't Mine Me achievement... HOW DO I DO THIS?!

Post  MarioFanaticXV on Wed Dec 04, 2013 1:12 am

I'm supposed to "Escape prospector without being hit by a melee attack.". The general strategy should be easy enough: Use the dodge and warp to keep away from him... But he just closes in too fast. Most of the time, I'm hit by a melee attack between the time that the scene where he appears plays, and the time it takes to refocus the camera on my ship! Even lowering the difficulty isn't helping, like I had to do to get Doctore.

EDIT: Also, is the bet in Fifty Fifty rigged? Or did I just have really bad luck when replaying it to make sure I got the winner?

The flight AI doesn't handle obstacles very well, and you should use that to your advantage.
Once you've gotten behind a good chunk of debris, the distance between you should increase rapidly. Remember to use afterburners and abilities, and keep in mind your goals aren't fixed with respect to Y-coordinates. The best route is definitely not the shortest.

I don't know about any hidden internal mechanics in Fifty Fifty, but I'll tell you I got it right the first try.

My tip for Don't Mine Me would be to approach the right edge of the map in such a way that there is a large obstacle between you and the boundary. The Prospector spawns directly to the right of you, so he will have to go around the obstacle. This will give you enough of a head start to get away if you use your teleport and maneuver abilities.

As for Fifty Fifty, the outcome is not predetermined. Both ships are proceduraly equipped and then go at each other.

For Fifty Fifty, simply pick the Grappler until he wins. It's hard to equip a good fighter.

Well, it took me a while, but I finally managed it. Do difficulty settings effect the AI, or only damage calculations and the like? Getting Doctore definitely felt a lot easier when I lowered the difficulty, but Don't Mine Me felt almost identical.

Higher difficulties reduce the damage enemies take from your attacks, increase the damage you take, and ALSO give the AI better reaction time and decision making abilities. Prepare to be Wombo Combo'd by the AI when engaging a group of them head on.
