Concerning the last boss of Explosives 101, it there a way to stop all of the cover from being destroyed or was it just a symptom of being in a PUG that could not DPS the glowing generator bits fast enough?

Arch I like that no matter what game you're playing, your playstyle inevitably revolves around bugs and monsters and generally ugly things.
Where Game Meets Show
As we're sure you know, Defiance is an entire universe that extends beyond the TV show. The Defiance game allows YOU to experience and explore life in 2046. The game, currently available for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, offers players the chance to play as ark hunters (that's Nolan and Irisa's job at the start of Episode 1) in the what was once San Francisco. And because show and game are set in the same world, they will be interacting throughout the season. Check out some key crossover moments below:
The Peril of Pol Madis
The shifty weapons designer Nolan encounters in Episode 6 works for Von Bach Industries, a name that should be familiar to Defiance players. Von Bach's corporate secrets could prove deadly in the hands of a madman.
Last week, we saw Rynn go rogue after being released by Nolan and Amanda as a reward for saving their lives. Now, everyone's favorite Irathient spitfire will be making her presence known in the Bay Area (and the game), helping players deal with a new wave of attacks from mutated Hellbugs (and maybe challenging some skilled gamers as well). Courtesy of Rynn’s understanding of Hellbug biology, the game will also see the introduction of the Infector Grenade, which can unleash small hellbugs on its target.
That's What Friends Are For
Eddie, Nolan's old soldier buddy, was also friends with Jon Cooper, a Lawkeeper in the Bay Area and a major character in the game. They were all members of the Iron Demons, a famous squad of Earth Military Coalition soldiers who took part in the Battle of Defiance.
Small But Deadly
The Varus Soleptor that Nolan mentions (and Eddie threatens to turn Nolan over to) is a Liberata businessman from the video game. Some believe he runs organized crime in the Bay Area. Before Nolan and Irisa came to Defiance, Varus hired them to recover a valuable artifact known as the Libera Nova Gem. They recovered the gem (with a little help from the players), but instead of handing it off to Varus, they kept it for themselves and headed east. Nolan used the gem to open a secret compartment in a Votan Ark (remember? In the first episode?), which is where he found the terrasphere that saved the town.
Notice how the Earth Republic outfits in the show and the game match? That's because the art departments at Trion and Syfy worked together to create the Earth Republic uniform.
The EGO menu has a section called “Intel”, in which you can find useful information about the world of Defiance that you may wish to refer to for reference.
● Added additional rewards and increased the chance to get weapons instead of grenades from Major Arkfalls.
● Mods that show up as vendor specials will now be higher quality.
● Area and region names now appear on the map and fade in and out when zooming the map.
● Inventory listing will mark which items are in loadouts other than the current one
● New option in Salvage Matrix to reset weapon mastery points.
● Fixed ark salvage spam when exiting menus if you broke down a lot of items in the salvage matrix

Yep, running it as admin should solve it.
In other news, I run a clan with some people from NeoGAF (NA and EU), but lately not a single person has been online. How are the PA clans?

So the game is free on Steam this weekend. I'm trying to install but keep getting patch errors when I try to update. Thoughts?
Edit: Trying to run as admin as suggested on the previous page.
