Done a few expeditions but not sure what to do when I come across those big crystals. Some I think you have to shoot, others avoid ? They have different purposes in different situations ? Are there other similar objects ?

In general, are there any good expedition guides around yet ? Looking for boss tactics and hiding places.

Shoot them when the npc's are near them for extra damage.

They'll also do damage to team mates so don't shoot them unless someone needs a good trolling. :D

They're like the explosive barrels.

Dekuso's Offspring Boss also uses them to recharge his Shields & Armor Plates... break all of them when fighting that boss or he'll take forever to kill on high tier.

I tried to formulate a coherent answer but your avatar pic has warped my mind. Yea I avoid crystals except in dykuso fight.. Even then gotta make sure your buddies are clear... Hivelord spawns them, but only to be a pain and make using explosives a bit risky.

I shoot them from a safe distance as a general rule.

Nothing more annoying than being stuck in a corner, surrounded by crystals while all hell is bearing down on you!

The 1st day or so the group I was running with was a field day or trolling. Being on either the giving or the receiving made for some good laughs.

Thanks all, sounds like the safe bet is to avoid them apart from the dekuso ones.

I know there are probably loads on youtube that's why I specified good guides in the hope that someone might have already trawled through them !


Now we have 3.010, I guess there won't be as many expeditions taking place ...
