    I have a problem with "The Rundown" mission in Central City that you get from Zoom on just one of my characters, for some reason it is glitched on just this one, as I have been able to complete it on all of the others. The character is my nature villain, Plantasma, I cannot get the speed force power from Zoom to be able to run after the people and steal their speed. It just does nothing, and she will not change movement modes. I am actually beyond the CR for this area and mission, but now it is stuck in my log and I can never complete it or get rid of it because of this error.

    We have identified the issue here. A workaround may be to go into wolf form and then grab the speed boost.

    This is a mission from the "Lighting Strikes" Episode in Central City. The NPC Flash is supposed to grant me super speed to start the quest, however the super speed mode last only a sec or two. After getting close to the NPC my character tries to get into super speed movement mode but comes back to the flight mode immediately. There is no even time to exit the starting area of the mission. When not in flight mode the character doesn't even tries to get into super speed move. It doesn't matter at what angle I come flying in I always get the same result. I'm playing on Nintendo Switch and since this is my main character I have not yet tried with another character. I have hide and unhide the quest, log back into the game and transport to other places, this has no effect in resetting the quest.

    This same issue was discussed a couple years ago in another tread that is currently archived on

    Still happening as of 2/7/2020.
    I have two toons that can not complete this mission because Flash will not give them the speed boost.

    I have the same CANT STOP! quest on my PC/computer to where the NPC Flash wont pass his speed Force power to me to run alongside the running infected NPC characters, this nonworking Flash NPC bug started happening directly after that Valentines Day event, usually when a player comes closes enough to the Flash in CentralCity for the Cant Stop! quest, he zaps your character with the speed Force, now the speed force isnt aquired at all-IT's NOT WORKING AT ALL on the PC, DCUO has Dev issues favoring the other consoles like Nintendo Switch and PS over the PC/Computer when the PC needs bugs fixed, But lot of PC DCUO players been supporting the DCUO game as far back when SONY first brought DCUO as a open to public free-to-play, so DCUO needs PC bug fixers to get in there to FIX THE EVENT AFTER UPDATE BUGS like this Central City Cant Stop! bug with the NPC Flash not passing his speed force to you so you can run with super speed alongside those infected citizens to stop them for the the quest showing in your journal.

    You do realise that Sony Online Entertainment and Daybreak are the same company, right? They just change the name when Sony decided to drop SOE.

    So I started tracking the quest "Can't Stop". I followed everything I needed to do up until I talked to the flash...but the thing is flash said he could or would boost me etc but I was never given any such speed boost to get through my quest, so I tried talking to him a second time and still nothing only this time I am not given the option to talk to him at all...i can't interact with him though the quest tells me I have to talk to him for this speed boost....please help. I tried to relog and switch maps (even tried relogging on a different map and re-tracking it but I am not able to talk to the flash at all...m

    In Central City (DLC2), accessed through the teleporter in the Hall of Doom Hangar, Professor Zoom isn't granting us Speed Force stuff to do the "The Run Down" mission, which requires us to run next to Speed Force "infected" NPCs while under the effect of Professor Zoom's Speed Force.

    This has been bugged for over a year now. I forget which update did it, but it has something to do with powers that have a form change. So nature (maybe ice?) can no longer do this mission, but quantum or fire are ok. It was a ticket in the old bug system also.

    Thank you, Lorax. I "liked" those threads as well. Ugh... yeah, it's not working on my Nature character. So it goes with what Shadow Dragon said. :-(

    I completed the mission can’t stop but when I went back to turn it in it said I had 0/8 absorb speed force energy when I just did it. Now I can’t talk to flash or anything. So in short I am unable to turn in the quest to complete it and no way to reset it.

    While I'm on the topic though, I think some of these missions are too slow when compared to their story equivalent.

    The "pick up enemy and move them here" mission in this episode has them siphon your speed so you're forced to walk, that's fine but the times you have to do it stays the same and so is the Mark reward. I think a change to either of those would make it feel worth all the walking.

    The speed in which you close Rifts are also surprisingly slow. It's slow enough to where I think you can even double the mark reward to 4.

    This fixed it for me, thanks. SUPER weird that it only works on wolf form. I tried hound form as well just because I was curious but no dice.
