I fought the BUS today and the same thing happened to me ;c Here's the save file for before the BUS is killed (also it kinda just got stuck in the civilians...lol).

Vennir: Thanks so much for that, it really helped me see the issues. Should be all fixed now - though no guarantees that saved games will work correctly with the update!!

-Fixed BUS inventory
-Fixed missing end state when killing BUS - (actually the BUS was blinking away, so fixed that)
-Fixed BUS not killing civilians
-5000 points now awarded if PERFECT RUN is achieved (all bots incapped except BUS and civilians never taking any damage at all)
Do, or do not. There is no try.

Perfect Run is definitely impossible without cheats. There's way too many and they come way too fast in waves 4-5. Unlimited health+energy, sure it is doable.
...
The grenades falling out of no where is from trying to pick up stuff when the PCU is full.

The time between wave 1-2 is perfect now. The time between wave 2-3 could be about 5 seconds longer.

There seems to be a lot more reds in wave 2 than last time around.

One of the bots didn't follow the path again and snuck up on the civilians. :(

I think the gap between 3 and 4 is too short. It needs 10-15 seconds.

I saw one red enemy literally disappear before my eyes.

Wow, the BUS started lobbing grenades like no tomorrow with the armor gone.

Is anything supposed to happen after the message pops?

I've tried doing a perfect run and I've hit a wall with the end wave. It's very hard and you get overwhelmed very quickly. I'll keep trying c:

- Sometimes you can get stuck in an downed enemy, specifically when they're on their knees. You're only free once you've either finished incapacitating them or if you kill them.

Yeah, I'm not too surprised that this level is bringing to light some bugs that remained hidden due to the core game not having this much combat. The thing is, we don't want to spend too much time fixing C1 bugs, as we want to focus hard on The Tower! Lots to do...

Understandable!
- I just finished the gauntlet but the BUS didn't appear and I didn't get the message at the end. I was doing a perfect run but accidentally killed one enemy.

Wow, Vennir, your score must be impressive, and certainly could win you a poster! I hope you took a screenshot?

That the BUS didn't show is very odd indeed, that's been working fine. You mean guys just stopped spawning...?

If you have a saved game I would recommend letting yourself die by the final guy so that you get the ending text and can enter the contest!

My guess the BUS fell through the world or vanished. I've seen both happen but not to the BUS.

Vennir: Was your game started from scratch after the latest update, or was it loaded from a saved game?

It was started from scratch. And yeah, no more enemies came and the BUS never appeared. But my score is the highest thus far; so most if not all of the last wave of enemies must've spawned? It certainly felt like it!
Yeah, thanks! I did take screenshot and I have a video too xD
