During a blind well run at unstable, I threw about 4 of the orbs that are necessary to take down the boss towards my teammates. However, even since they were colliding with the players, they were exploding on impact. This prevented us from being able to power up the orbs and unable to take down the boss since most of the orbs were depleted from trying to power them up. If they only exploded on contact with the boss or enemies that would be great, but if they explode on contact with allies when they should be catching them, then that's a problem.
Allo Cars You can use the orbs without powering them up just in case you're not aware. When you passed them to your team were they facing you when you threw the ball?
