Here's a tip for everyone.
If you have Minimech CE or any other pet, make sure to deploy them at all times because they're actually very useful and not just for show. I first discovered that enemies will follow the pet if you stray to close to them and they spot you.
But even better is what happens during combat. In the off chance that both you and your companion have been stunned, all enemies will cease attacking you and simply focus their attention on your pet and will do NOTHING for that few seconds you're out of commission.
They'll just look at your pet for that period of time XD
