Ok, so since a few days ago, I’ve been encountering some predators that seem to be way too aggressive. By this I mean that they’ve chased me for about 200m from their initial location. Normally I wouldn’t think too much on this, but the distances that the predator chases feels wayyyyyy out of character. I know they chase you for a distance to force you out of their ‘turf’, but these kept on chasing when they weren’t under attack and were just being left alone after being disturbed. I have two such cases, and I’m wondering if there’s some kind of bug affecting their behaviour.
Case 1 - Barracks (Nomad)
The first one was a nomad which spawned at the venom hounds spawn below the platform area by the relay. I know this as I rushed by there as soon as we dropped down, and I saw the elite nomad there. On chasing the monster, I cut past the nomad and continued around the left side of the platform (when facing the relay from the platform), and continued up the hill. The nomad proceeded to follow me up there [see map below].
Red X - Nomad location
Blue line - Route taken by myself (and the nomad chasing me)
Purple X - Location I finally had enough and killed the nomad
Case 2 - Broken Hill Mines (Dune Beetle)
Dune beetle followed and attacked me for a good long distance (roughly 1/3 of the circumference of the most inner circle from the centre)
Yellow X as the start point.
[This is a rough estimate, as I couldn’t tell the actual distance due to the mines being very similar in appearance in areas.]
The dune beetle one may be a bit iffy, but with the nomad occuring it made me really question if there’s perhaps something wrong with the behaviour of some of the predators/wildlife. Not sure if this is something that can be checked…
EDIT: Changed from Bugs -> General. Satisfied for now that Nomads and Beetles are just giant assholes (although we all knew that about the beetles )
