Summary0027075: Corrosive effect Penetrates Bubble Shields
DescriptionIn my current game I ran into the issue that a single corrosive guardian can take out multiple force field generators with its death explosion. I was very surprised to see that the corrosive effect ignores shields and can just kill the super weak generator.

This effectively makes it so that if 1 of these guardians ever gets close to a shield generator It is guaranteed to die. I feel like this is either an oversight or a serious balance issue as many planets become undefendable if attacked like that.

I can understand it ignoring personal shielding as its niche but bubble shields should be immune considering their tiny health.

I feel like this is working as intended, but if others disagree I can modify the effect

This is a pretty different problem from the corrosive guardian issue

Seems odd, after all fusion weapons don't go through bubble shields like they do through personal shields so I'd expect corrosion to work the same way. Specialized anti-bubble weapons just do bonus damage, never bypass it.
