Bugged mission "Retrieve 'food' for the ghouls

Hey all.

Doing old story arcs in Oro, on the 15-19 set of missions and doing the arc with Hatchet in Imperial City. Doing the mission "Retrieve 'food' for the ghouls" and when I went to kidnap the 3rd programmer, after killing the group surrounding him, the counter in the Nav bar went from "Kidnap 1 programmer" to disappearing, indicating that I was succesful in completing the objectives. However, the model itself ran off towards the entrance and disappeared, and now I am stuck with no enemies and no sign of this NPC, with just the title of the mission in the Nav bar.

I was able to replicate this issue on basically any "rescue" type mission. When rescuing a person in a group of enemies, if the enemies are using AOE dmg powers on you and you are standing near the NPC, the NPC takes damage and eventually dies. This makes it appear as though the person who saved, as the objective does drop 1, but the expected behavior should instead be an outright Mission Fail, as otherwise when you rescue another NPC, the objectives go away, and then you are stuck in the mission without being able to complete. In the case of Ouroboros missions, leaving the task force and restarting is an option, but for a character leveling up this may not be the case.

I ran all gold story arc twice, but I did not encounter this bug. I got hit by AoE while rescuing hostages, but they always survive. Did you increase your notoriety to an extreme level? (+4/x8)

No, actually. I was playing through it on a very low difficulty (+0/x1). The main thing is the hostages were level 5 and the enemies were level 15. Not sure why such the huge level difference.

Somehow a hostile mob can hit a neutral critter, and the critter's level is much lower than the mission itself? Ouch.

Could you replicate it? Maybe you did something unusual before running the mission?

To clarify on neutral it had a blue square around it, not a yellow one, but yes level was much lower. I did not attempt to replicate it on my 2nd attempt, just used taunt to pull them far away and cleared them that way.

I Googled to see what I was doing wrong and came across this thread. Can confirm this is still happening as at Jan 20th 2021. Went through a second time and pulled the programmers' guards away to fight them, and ended the mission successfully.
