The Official Phantom: Covert Ops Q&A Thread

DaftnDirectDaftnDirect Posts: 5,812 Volunteer Moderator
I think it may be a good idea to have all the questions, problems and solution in a single thread.
This is really for problems relating to running or purchasing the game but could also be questions relating to achieving goals if you're really stuck... answers to those type questions should use the forum's spoiler feature to avoid.. erm.. spoiling it for others. I'll start merging threads into this one if that's ok with you guys.

There's also a Reviews and Impressions thread below to add your reviews and... well you get the idea:

    I'm at a panel that I need the torch to open, but I don't have the torch and haven't been able to find it. Is it on me or do I have to find it in a stash box?

    Anyone else getting a touch controller icon on the paddle that doesn't go away? it's very distracting and kills the immersion.

    Is Phantom: Covert Ops cross buy? 

    I see on various sites that have reviewed the game that it is cross buy. When I look at the games page in the Oculus phone app and PC app for the Rift S it doesn't have both platforms listed like cross buy games normally do. If it's cross buy I'm going to buy it right now.

    So for anyone that has bought it and own a Rift S and a Quest did you get both versions when you bought it on one platform or will I have to buy it for each platform?

    Yeah, I don’t know why the store page doesn’t list both platforms like it should, but if you expand the description, it says this at the bottom:
    OCULUS OPTIMISED
    Cross-buy, cross-save and cross-play, including Oculus Link support.

    I really wish Oculus would do a better job with Cross-buy; it should be properly and consistently flagged, it should be searchable, and they should always make sure the prices and sale discounts match across both versions. During the anniversary sale, there were many cross-buy titles on sale on the Rift store that were full price for the Quest.

    I agree 100% about Oculus making it more obvious about cross-buy.

    It shouldn't take any effort on my part to find out if a game is cross-buy. Take Steam for example. Everything you need to know about a game is in a side bar. If a game is VR compatible I can easily see that it is. If a VR game supports the Index, Oculus headsets, but not Windows Mixed Reality headsets I can easily see that info. Instead with Oculus there have been a few times since I started using Oculus headsets where I had to search for that info.

    Thanks for the info on this games cross-buy status. I bought it the second I found out it was cross-buy. I haven't been able to play it yet. I plan on jumping in the game today after dinner. I can't wait!

    Question for game challenge:

    Anybody figure out how to beat the helicopter at the end? I shoot it with the grenade launcher, I explode. I try to run, it kills me. Not seeing a clear way of finishing this.

    And please use the spoiler option when asking for help with the later and bigger battles, thanks! :)

    Shoot it twice at end. As fast as possible.

    Edit: answer in spoiler

    Put the mission questions and answers in spoilers please!

    If you're asking a question, probably good to let people know it's a mission question first, then highlight the question or answer you want to hide, then select 'spoiler' from the 'format' drop-down.

    Thank-you.
