Low omega rewards during reputation bonus event.
 
I played "Infected: The Conduit" (regular) 2 hours before the Rep event and was awarded 75 Omega marks.(with bonus)

Now during the Reputation bonus event, I played "Infected: The Conduit(Elite) and was awarded 90 Omega marks(with bonus), one BNP and a a rare Dual Plasma beam bank MkII.

I was clearing well over 100+ Omega marks on STF Elites during the bonus rep event.

What happened? Seems like too little reward for an Elite, especially during a bonus event.

90 is standard with optional during the Rep hour. Anything you get more than that was part of your loot drop. I've had 115 off Rep hour before, but it is random.

Thanks for the info. I thought I was getting shortchanged...

I think Regular STFs should guarantee extra Omega Marks, and Elites should guarantee a larger drop of BNPs.

I was hoping for some consistency. I did an elite run during normal time and got 6 BNP and 100 marks. The during the bonus event I get 90?

You get 60 marks + 15 for the optional + 1 BNP + a chance of extra marks or 5/10 BNPs in your lootbag.
The bonus event increases mark payout by 20% or so, so you get 90 instead of 75 with optional.

You also get more marks for ground missions.

Keep in mind that you won't be awarded 15 Optional Marks if the objective is completed while you're dead/waiting for respawn...

Also, final loot bag may contain additional marks, the same way there may be more BNPs in it.
