Does anyone know what is the reward of this objective? It is the first mission in the Agripinaa sector, the one in which the Tyranids have to break an Imperial blockade.
The secondary objective is escorting a few ships to the other side. I accomplished it but I don't believe it gave a reward.
The issue is not pyro acid itself, you don't see acid Voidprowlers or acid Razorfiends.
The issue is 2 particular ships: acid Hive ships and acid Krakens. Technically also caustic Drones, but those are the slowest ship in the game and quite fragile so it balances it out.
But the rest of pyro acid ships are fine or even still quite weak.
While Tyranids are quite strong in the moment, the entire idea that they shouldn't outdps other factions is wrong. Tyranids have plenty of ships whose only purpose is dakka, otherwise they wouldn't have guns.
In addition, we are talking of mostly short range firepower on the slowest faction that also cannot focus fire. You can alternate ships to protect damaged ones simply by moving them slightly behind your other ships.
So if I'm reading the patch notes correctly, we are getting a buff to our shooting (a 25% increase in rate of fire), plus range buff to plasma with tracking senses, harder to crit claws, torpedoes and tentacles, a regeneration buff to Hive Ships and point decreases to basically everything.
Last patch was horrible to Tyranids, so how do this buffs change things?
