Badges and photon boosters not dropping

Not sure if it's a bug, but during a advance mission, the "rare drop" text alert was popping up over and over and over again but none of the badges from rappies or photon items were showing in my instance. The only rare drops that did show were ?weapons.

Do you have Material items set to auto pick-up in Options?

I'm having the same problem with photon boosters. I've had the same amount in my storage for days despite running like a dozen vhaqs.

Just found out harukotan doesnt drop boosters. thats what it was
