Digistruct Combat Garden?

Is there any reason to pick the onions in the combat garden? I always do it, just in case, but I’m constantly annoyed that I have to stop killing stuff to harvest veggies.

Nah. Just a good way to get the completionist challenge if you’ve already done all other possible missions and have no other way to do optional objectives.

I do it while waiting for my action skill or shield to recharge.

or pick the carrots for some diversion.

I think it’s to force you into the side area so it triggers more bad guys from the little side alley.

It’s just a side objective. The enemies are going to spawn randomly regardless of what you do. That’s actually the better area to fight from anyways.
