Reddit user JimmyBr33z shared a video showing how Pelican-1 just sunk into the ground and they had to make another call for Pelican-1 (wait for a few more minutes)  and extract them away. This bug has been seen by other players and usually just requires players to recall the shuttle but there are many cases where missions have failed.

With fixes taking a little longer, some players have suggested temporary fixes, such as avoiding certain actions during the extraction phase or clearing the enemies from the landing area, but these are not guaranteed solutions. The Pelican-1 issue highlights the importance of robust post-launch support and timely updates in maintaining a positive player experience in online games.
