Villain Disruptor Badge and Tip Missions


FoxyPrime

Recommended Posts

I just defeated Flambeaux and Blast Furnace in a tip mission and neither of them counted towards the Villain Disruptor badge. I know it says safeguard specifically, but the wiki insists it was expanded to include tip mission villains.

 

I think it really should be expanded so fights with these characters outside of safeguards also count, because only doing it through safeguards is extremely tedious.

I can't speak to the tip missions specifically, but I do know that there are multiple ways outside of safeguards to defeat the NPCs needed for the badge. I don't know which wiki you were using but the HC wiki page for Villain Disruptor is slightly more up-to-date. I know that there are other places not listed on that wiki page (because I don't think that page was intended to be an exhaustive list) where one can encounter NPCs that count, such as Echidna in the third mission of the first chapter of the hero version of the 'Who Will Die' SSA.

 

It does make sense that signature villains in tip missions should count, though, and both Flambeaux and Blast Furnace appear to belong to a villain group that should count so I am at a bit of a loss to explain why they didn't.

Echidna did NOT count as of, maybe 5 months back? It may have been changed in the meantime, but I know she never used to, since I made a suggestion thread along these exact same lines.

She definitely counts, and has counted for more than a year. Please note my log entries below. In both cases this was the third mission of Chapter 1 of Who Will Die, where the first block from last summer represents an evening of farming that mission about 20 times, whereas the second block from a few months ago represents having run the missions in Chapter 1 approximately once a week over the course of 6-8 months.

the redside SSA heroes/vigilantes do NOT count for the hero slayer badge. Or at least didnt.

Having run the redside version of Chapter 1 many times as well, and after checking my logs against my character badge progress, I believe you are correct.
