An Outriders bug which can wipe out your stock is nonetheless not set, with problems from disappointed players afflicted by this stressing flaw nevertheless flooding in by means of various on the internet forums.
The ‘lose all your gear’ glitch is one of the most dreaded bugs in gaming – along with other gems like the ‘corrupted save’ – and it’s triggering posts to pop up on the likes of Reddit with some regularity now.
As highlighted by Computer system Gamer, AJacks 28 complained: “So, yesterday, I was actively playing with close friends and I obtained kicked with a link error. I logged again in, and my stock is wholly long gone, even issues I had equipped.”
A extra recent submit from Qwallas states: “My sport crashed throughout an expedition, loaded the game [and] it crashed logging me in. Following I signed [in] correctly my total inventory was absent. Pls repair this bug.” The participant provides: “If the devs really do not correct this bug [and] restore my whole stock am carried out with the game.”
Other people are chiming in on these threads and somewhere else, alongside with the Sq. Enix identified problems thread on the bug, all stating they have suffered the same fate. An additional variation of the bug looks to be the most important weapon disappearing, and that slot becoming unusable (a gremlin that might reportedly be healed by switching to your secondary weapon, and emptying it of ammo, so it car-swaps more than to a principal gun). Accolades are also getting wiped in some situations, also.
So what’s going on? As is made very clear in that regarded issues thread, the stock wipe is an challenge the developer has been ‘keeping an eye on’, and the most current update posted during the start weekend notes: “We’re now talking about the best probable techniques to resolve this problem and make sure we are equipped to support everybody who has been impacted. For now we are focusing endeavours on stabilizing servers, which in switch should really minimize these initially weekend occurrences.
“Once which is been done, I’m hoping to share news close to the way we intend to get players again on their toes.”
The challenge being, of course, that some players will proficiently be in limbo, and not seeking to participate in the match, right until a resolution has been set ahead or executed.
The devs further more observe: “We’re continue to figuring out no matter whether the greatest way would be a 1-to-just one customer help group process (which may perhaps be more exact but would choose considerably for a longer time and may not be feasible if there are several situations), or no matter whether we are in a position to (as beforehand) run a mass-one-off restoration party through our backend.”
What’s specially worrying here is that some players think this is taking place to a lot more and a lot more folks, and as Personal computer Gamer factors out, it is a glitch in the game which was seemingly transpiring pre-start in the demo.
There is continue to no true timeframe for when or how the bug could be solved, but we can maintain our fingers crossed that we get an additional official update before long enough.
The only feasible workaround floated by gamers – these types of as it is – is to stay clear of playing co-op, as it looks that if you’re a lone wolf, this specific bug (with any luck ,) won’t occur (get that with a pinch of salt, even though).
