No shield recharge on firefight

I have noticed since the monitors bounty releases that my shields will not recharge after being taken down, health will, but shields will not, does anyone else have this problem?

It’s one of the skulls added in mythic FF, assuming you’re talking about mythic FF

You need to go smack some aliens.

Preferably with energy swords that have no charge left

Thats the Black-eye skull. Melee enemies to recharge shields.

This. If you for some reason dived into the abyssal horror that is Mythic Firefight, then you probably ran into the Black Eye rounds - which was always a pain even back in ODST’s Firefight. I’d take Famine or Blind/Fog over Black Eye anyday, especially given its already pushed up to Legendary AI for this mode…

And this is why people should read the descriptions of the skulls in Mythic Firefight. Words are there for a reason : to be read.

That’s a skull effect.

Beat first try with randoms. Doesn’t give you much if a reward for winning :confused:

It really should, given the difficulty… If there’s not much of a gap between Heroic and Mythic rewards, people would just farm the former for Exp/RP rather than play Mythic - unless they just want that challenge and the rewards aren’t what matters to them.

lol mythic isnt even that hard

Black eye is round 2 I believe, pray that at the end of round 1 you’re good enough to get level 3 energy and that you spawn a wraith with random vehicle like I did.
Enclosed vehicles are really good with black out and the wasp, banshee and mantis and sword hog still recharge shields over time.

Everyone’s gonna find something easy that others find to be difficult, but so far it’s pretty hard - at least compared to Heroic P:

Famine makes no sense because we have REQ stations. There are an abundance of enemy weapons to fill up on, the REQ stations will fill up Loadout weapons, and the end game is vehicle dependent which has infinite ammo anyway. It’s like attaching Catch to a Flood level, it doesn’t harm you in any way.

Fog does little since you’re in a (large) enclosed area with set spawns and markers toward your boss. Blind is just a step too extreme because you rarely know what you’re holding or shooting.

Vehicles is one reason why I have mixed feelings about WZFF… They’re the One Right Solution because of their infinite ammo and - with higher tiers like ONI and Hannibal variants - are better than any power weapon.

Granted back in ODST/Reach days vehicles dominated the battlefield when you could get your hands on them too, but they were in very limited supply. This isn’t true in WZFF, which is perhaps the main thing that makes it easier at the end of the day. That’s one reason why I feel that an infinite ‘hold out as long as you can’ Firefight would have been better, and Bosses could show up as optional objectives to boost your score if you think the risk of losing precious lives is worth the reward in score.
Vehicles would still be the dominant thing to call in compared to most power weapons though, as long as we have that option to do so.

Back to the Skulls though. Famine might slow the rate your REQ points refill and cut the ammo of whatever PW’s you call in half… But that just circles back to the vehicles being the One Right Solution, and if anything would just solidify that…
