I recall it being a thing in the last game. Not sure if its in this one. If not i think something can be done to making astroid fields more benifical and maybe even deadlier. Could make the perk that Gives astroid field immunity more useful. At the moment damage from astroid field is pretty negligible. It needs to be scarier but also be a more tactically important mechanic.
Do Astroid Fields provide defensive bonuses.
