Re: Cora Harper: Asari Ark Transponder Bug.

★★★★ Newbie

I must've sniped from a hill and when I got down to the location I couldn't access anything. Wasn't sure what was going on so I left and continued with my game. But now i've explored two more planets, found all the other arks and their respective pathfinders, and can't move on and find the asari ark or its pathfinder because of this one bug. Is this gonna effect my endgame?

Same deal for me. The first time I encountered the camp I rushed it. Two dropships brought in Kett reinforcements and I died. The second time I sniped the enemies from the nearby hills and no reinforcements were triggered. I figured missing that trigger must have had something to do with the bug.

Having the same issue. Sniped the 3 or 4 enemies, saved to reload and it's now the earliest save I've got that isn't an entire planet ago.

 

How the hell did this make it through QA? Oh, that's right, there's no QA in EA.

This is a finding the Ark quest line and needs to be fixed!  I have decided to stop playing on until this and the other known quest arc bugs are fixed, nothing is more frustrating in Mass Effect then broken story arcs that cannot be completed.

I also encounter the same bug.

 

I approach the enemy with sniper and the trigger won't work. 

 

When I go in another planet and go back I can't activate or scan the transponder;

 

Hope this bug could be resolve quickly because I really want to find this ark! ^^

This problem yet persists, unfortunately.

Same here. I reloaded latetest save and got closer to the site to tricker the event then ran away to snipe.

Same problem. I also sniped from the hill. 

 

Camp is permanently cleared of all hostiles. I have gone on to other planets and other quests and have no save file before the event. I have also returned to the location with Cora several times. The transponder is physically visible at the exact point of the navpoint I have, scanning it does nothing and I cannot interact with it. Quest does not progress no matter which direction I approach from either on foot or by vehicle.

 

I am about to proceed to test if having Cora as your first squaddie or second squaddie is a thing. I've kept her in slot two for most of the game. I do not have high hopes for this.

 

EDIT: I can confirm that Cora's position in your squad is irrelevant.

Problably not a solution for the bug in general but sometimes, placeables that need to be scanned are only scanable from a certain point of view and angle when a yellow line apears around the objekts borders. I noticed that at a different quest where i had to find footprints on a planet, took me some time to find out how to progress in that quest.

You're right about some things requiring a specific view point but I've spent a considerable quantity of time viewing the transponder from multiple angles both with the scanner and without. (for purposes of interact attempts) That ain't the solution, thanks for the input though. 

 

Maybe it has something to do with visiting all of the false sites first? I don't think I visited all of them but I don't know where they are to confirm.

 

Edit: Attached a screenshot of the transponder.

 

Edit 2: Yes, I have two Sandstorm rifles. One shoots lightning, the other explodes. I like utility. A lot.
