Am I missing something, or is this particular mission just really fucking awful? I've been stuck at the part where you have to get to the Cerberus Shuttles for a good while now. I have no idea what the hell I'm supposed to do. For one, there are FAR too many enemies, especially since they keep spawning in new ones every minute or so, and the way this section of the level is designed makes it so they can surround you within seconds. You're already pretty fragile as it is; dudes shooting you while you're behind cover doesn't help. This section also reveals how finicky and busted the cover system still is in this game. I had really hoped that shit like that would've been fixed from ME2, but I still find myself constantly popping in and out of cover when I'm not trying to.
I find it impossible to make any sort of forward progress in this level. I'd rather not lower the difficulty (I'm on hardcore) or load to my save right before starting this mission, so is there anyone who has done this that can help me out here?
