Empty, eventless missions and strongholds

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: Anthem
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
Please specify your platform model. Sony PlayStation 4
Please select your region Europe
Were you on an Expedition when the issue occurred? No
Where did this issue occur? Please include menu name or in game location. Varied Quickplay missions and most recently quickly stronghold into Tyrant Mine on GM1
When did this happen? ( hh:mm) 16.03.19 20:40
Summarize your bug U.K London. On selecting Quickplay mission I enter into partially completed mission.. looks more like freeplay. This evening for the first time the same thing happened in Quickplay Tyrant Mine. This was in the second area with 12 echoes
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Try Quickplay missions
What happens when the bug occurs? In missions there may or may not be onscreen mission objective but never a waypoint marker. But flying anywhere brings up 'out Of mission area warning and takes me back to spawn point. In Tyrant Mine area onscreen indicated 12 echoes collected but they are still available on map. No scar or any threats. Echo deposit point just a sand pit.
What should be happening instead? You should know

Every other aspect of the game during these incidents work fine.

When I press square to exit mission I am returned to the end screen of the most recent properly completed mission with the players of that session and  not players from faulty, empty mission

For "quickly" read "Quickplay " damned autocorrect. Sorry

Another one just now 21.10 London UK time. Quickplay mission gm2

This one had nothing on screen apart from one, then two other players.

I flew around a bit with no warnings and no enemies of any kind whatsoever!?

And now with no waypoint,  just "ensure security for arcanists conducting tests" ... locate second site" wherever that damn thing is.  Your guess us as good as mine. 

Just north of valley of tarsis 


Just tried again. This time taken straight to end score/ results screen of the last mission successfully completed
