Did this mission solo a couple times (good mission, btw) and then the 3rd time did it with 2 other fleetmates and a remarkable thing happened...when we were first let out of the cage to enter the arena, the force fields on either side were down, allowing us to access the other weapons cache and get a rare (blue) Batlthe instead of using the common ones down the hall.
What triggers that? Did it again afterwards, again solo, and couldn't figure out how to get the force fields down, nor even seem to get the option. Was it because it was a team? Or just dumb luck?
None of us in the team episode did anything to trigger the fields to drop...
Anyone know how to drop them every time?
