@Grumblevolcano It also scales to pilot level 😭 I went into the Thunderdome (whatever it’s called) and was immediately fighting star levels. And legion hyperspace traps dump star levels at me.

@toiletduck You get used to it once you've fought 75 level 15 dreadnoughts.

So do Dreadnoughts just spawn infinitely now? Because another one just popped up as I was taking out the Prime it spawned. That's going to be really irritating if they just keep spawning forever now.

They did before the update, but only post game. You get used to it though.

I know they did before, I'm talking about after the update. I really don't see much point in changing that now. The Extractor/Prime/Dreadnought battles really don't really bring much to the table, yes it's more replay value, but it mainly just gets in the way of other stuff you want to do. So it's really more irritating than anything else.

Also, in regards to the Celestial Anvil,

I did a Google search and found that if you just destroy it, Kharl just laments about not getting to study it. So I activated it, and what happened was a second Equinox appeared out of a portal and took the Anvil. Starlink then wonders where it went, if the second Equinox was from an alternate universe or another time, and thinks the Anvil might have really been dangerous. Mason then says they'll deal with it if it comes back.

Ultimately I would activate it, but it doesn't seem to matter too much. Either way it's just a little bit of dialogue.

Has anyone figured out how to fulfill the requirements to draw out King Rydra? Especially the "Defeat 5 Planetary Outlaws with Precision" requirement? I received credit for 1 by defeating a tank, but not after defeating subsequent tanks. How is this one supposed to work?

I broke down and spent $50 to get the starter pack, Neptune, and Lance. My friend was in a nearby town today and snagged me the Nadir and two weapon packs. I have the digital, but with all the toys half off I figured why not. I think I’ll have more fun playing this way. I may even restart the game, because the DLC is ridiculous hard for my fully leveled pilots right now

The DLC implements a level scaling system, so restarting won't do you any good. The game is just like that now.

Quick question, I have the game (bought it full price when it came out damn it) but haven't got very far. They have the toys on sale in Smyth's. I am just wondering what content is locked behind paywalls? I heard that certain areas required weapons not included in the starter kit. Is there an essential shopping list for getting the in game content out of the different pilots/ships/weapons?

What does everything unlock (other than the toy itself in game)? Like what can you do that you couldn't otherwise if you didn't have the toy or digital approximation?

The only content locked out is for 100% completion of everything within the worlds that are definitely not required to progress the story. In other words, some of the bonus perks are locked out, as are some of the towers that require certain weapon attributes to activate.

@gimmi_c really only some loot is locked behind weapons. You've seen i'm sure puzzles that require you to use fire or ice, well there are ones that require gravity or stasis and such. Other than that ships are lives so that helps ease the difficulty some. As far as I know nothing meaningful is locked behind the toys.

If you wanted a shopping list mostly get a gravity weapon, stasis weapon and kinetic weapon. It can help to have a better fire weapon than the initial flamethrower. You can google weapon recommendations to see what you think you'd want to buy. That's really all there is to it though.

@DarkRula @Yorumi cheers, I appreciate the advice. Maybe I will pick up some weapons then. I got the impression that they unlocked areas when you blasted things with the right weapon type. Might get a ship and some characters too. Unfortunately they are not that cheap, the ships are a tenner, the weapons £4 and the pilots £2. I loathe to spend any more money on this game considering I dumbly bought it for £70 thinking it would sell out but the thought of missing out on content/general time factors has meant that I haven't played much.

So weapons=puzzles
Ships=lives
Do the characters unlock any new story/cut scenes??

I don't think so but I could be wrong on that.

In terms of spending money it does such but it helps that it's at least a big game with a lot of content. It also helps that they make nice display pieces. So there's always that. Still I agree it was a shameless cash grab. At least it's the best Star Fox game we've seen in 20 years.

The only character thing is nothing major. Just character-specific dialogue while out in the field and in fights.

@DarkRula @Yorumi fair enough, cool. I really enjoyed what I played in only a few hours so I'm looking forward to getting back into it. Reminded me a bit of no man's sky but with more structure. I mainly got the starter kit for the arwing but considering I have a shelf full of amiibo I can probably add a bit more junk to it lol. I suppose if I get some of what's in the shop then maybe the rest will go down in price further in future. I bought most of my amiibo in the bargain bin.

@gimmi_c If this helps out; I bought digital at launch but after all the toys stayed on sale consistently I bought physical last month.
I also grabbed: Neptune ship, Nadir ship, the Shockwave, Freeze gun, Meteor, Flamethrower weapon sets (can’t remember which pairs went together) with the weapons and ships I’ve got, I can collect all in game warden relics. Only thing I can’t get are a few equinox upgrades for Eli and Kharl

@HobbitGamer nice one, cheers. I'll have a look at what they have, I can't really remember what all the weapon logos mean so I was a bit lost looking at them today with ten minutes until the shop closed (I went there to pick up spyro PS4 for 18 quid).

Knowing me, I'll probably just get everything they have in the end, bringing my starlink total spend to well over a ton.

Damn Ubisoft and their average to good games with toys and/or season passes!

I seem to have a few recently...south park 1 and 2, mario+Rabbids (still waiting for season pass to go on sale), starlink and a few ps plus ones like assassin's creed blackflag which was total ass(assin), trials fusion which was as addictive as crack and steep which I started playing last night so the jury is out on that one.

Bring back splinter cell dammit lol (with Michael Ironside and not that guy from smallville)

@HobbitGamer the nadir ship looked cool actually, I saw that in the shop. It was so big I doubt id be able to see the controller under it!

HobbitGamer

@gimmi_c It’s one of the two bigger ships (Neptune is just smaller). Hardly use it, but the Nullifier missiles+ice missiles are crazy fun.
