So right before you disperse the cure or don't, you have to tap 2 hammers to summon the Thresher Maw. Now right before that, I was attacked by a brute, so I started shooting at him and before I knew it there was another brute.
Now after dodging and weaving a third brute came, killing both my squadmates at which point, I started to run as fast as I could. After getting to the first hammer, I was surrounded by at least 5 brutes... now my question is can you kill them all and go do the tapping at peace? Or do they just keep spawning and the point is to keep running?
