In what is likely to be the final surprise test for beta 2.2, we're making a change to hatchbreaker limpets.
They will no longer be affected by shields.
Hatch breakers, as before, cannot be shot down by point defence. ECMs will still work (and should still work to remove them from the hull).
They will still travel at 300 m/s.
Piracy is a multi-faceted issue, we understand that this is is only a small part of the equation. However, we are interested in seeing what difference pulling this one lever will have.
This change should drop in the next beta update.
Feedback, as usual, will be greatly appreciated!
