This has happened to me four times. I am jumping around, happy as Larry, when all of a sudden, BOOM. I die seemingly out of nowhere. Here are the descriptions of what I was doing.
Using jump pad back from Z8N-TP. Got near a piece of the level, autodeath.
Jumping down from Z8N-TP’s room to the tunnel to the cannon. Autodeath. (I can’t win.)
Jumping on randomly placed level pieces. I land on one. Autodeath. (Arbitrary killzone?)
Triton Flats (The mission with the ECHO recorder from Tycho’s Ribs)-
First, Hanna wasn’t there, so I had to session cycle. Then, I got near her. Autodeath without death animation.
You know, between the glaring bugs, arbitrary killzones and occasional lagspikes, this is a cool game.
