    Well, I'll get right to the point. These are too easy.

    Sorry, I hate to be 'that person', but I can go up to this thing with my SV and explode the core. Then I get no spawns and can just get the box from the top and then break it down. Steady respawning POI that I can return to over and over. Factually zero challenge if I have an SV.

    But wait, there's a version with the turret on top, right? If I blow up the block below the turret, the whole thing falls.

    A part of me hates to complain about it, because they're nice in their own way. A steady supply of easy crates and materials.

    But they are literally "shoot out the core, all mine now."

    Sorry everybody, sorry. But it's really kind of exploity.

    It is a really low-level POI it should be easy. If you want more challenge fly right past and go find an abandoned reactor.

    There are versions of these with big guns that are harder as well. although they may only be found in that one scenario.

    There needs to be a good mix of tier 1 through tier 5 poi in the game these are tier 1 and are just fine in that role

    I think they're too easy even for that. You can get an SV pretty quickly and then these are less than trivial, but have the same level drops as things on, for example, the legacy homeworld.

    If they are going to be this trivial, they need cheaper loot boxes/ lower level drops only. It's far too hard without an SV and way too trivial with one, imo.

    They used to have Very Rare loot containers, before I got to it.
    It's possible to set them to spawn enemies, even if the core has been destroyed; or the core could be moved into the armored Base of the POI instead of the top.
    Ultimately, this POI is only a problem on servers with regenerating POIs that can be farmed. In which case, there are far worse culprits like the submerged tanks.

    That's true that submerged tank can give some good stuff

    they are more useful with the current container. Although I thought they had ultra-rare and now have very rare.

    The unknown helix comes very early in the Talon storyline I think, you are not supposed to have a SV yet , but are supposed to walk up through the spirals which you can do but you will encounter 'mutants' that may infect you, NOT easy at all if you want my opinion. Although in 1.4 they changed it with the big monument which, yes, is a walk in the park.
