      Outriders - bugs, errors, disconnections and wipes

      We all know and fear it, the inventory bug, where you can lose all your hard-earned items and your character ends up completely naked and lonely. Often those affected can't even log in anymore. Where the bug comes from is not yet clear, but there are some things you can do to prevent it from occurring and if it does occur, you may still be able to avert it. Now that the bug has been fixed, there are other bugs that can occur in multiplayer games. Here you can find out which ones.

      Inventar-Bug

      Since 04/10/2021, the developers of the game (People Can Fly) have been searching for the bug that makes players' inventory disappear. They have also been trying to fix the "unable to connect to server" disconnection bug since 04/12/2021.


      The developers have written the following (see reddit) to prevent the bug:

      We're seeing many of these reports appear to be specifically related to starting a multiplayer session from the Expeditions Outrider camp. If you're concerned that this issue may happen to you we recommend avoiding this setup for the time being as this greatly reduces the likelihood of the issue occurring.


      That is, don't start your multiplayer sessions from the camp but from Trench, for example. Also, your teammates can join the session even if you have already chosen a campaign. Meaning, start an expedition of your choice and when you are inside, ready to run, your friends will join first (join your game). This should prevent the bug for the most part.




      However, the developer gives another tip:

      A potential prevention method to safeguard yourself if you run into this issue > The moment you notice that your gear has disappeared, immediately force close the game, then reboot it.


      So have your ALT + F4 or SHIFT + CTRL + ESC ready and kill the game before the lost inventory can be saved from autosave. This way you should still be able to do something about it in case of emergency and avert the error.

      The error should also mainly occur during expeditions, which means that no one will stop you from boxing your way through the campaign together with your buddy until level 30.


      The important thing is this:

      The bug doesn't occur as often since the last patch as it did before, but it hasn't been fixed yet. The developers have been working hard since 04/11/20221 to find and fix the bug. If you are affected by the bug, you will get your items back but probably not all of them. The recovery of the lost items will happen as follows:


      • The recovery will happen on a specific day and will be a big, one-time event. The date for it is yet to be announced, but it should happen in the next few weeks.
      • It is expected that only the most valuable items will be restored, that is, epic and legendary equipment. An inventory that was full of blue gear will probably not be restored.
      • Restoration will add the items to your inventory. The items in it will not be replaced.
      • The restored items may not have quite the same status values as the ones you lost.


      So you will probably get back the most expensive and valuable items you lost, but the rest will remain gone.




      Outriders Inventory bug fixed since 04/15/2021:


      People Can Fly and Square Enix have released a statement about it via Reddit:

      We have just released a patch on Steam, Epic, Xbox and PlayStation platforms that addresses the bug that has, since the previous update, been causing the inventories of certain players to be wiped.

      If your inventory has been impacted, please note that our efforts to restore your items are a separate process from today's released patch. Restoring the inventory of affected players is still our highest priority, while today's patch is intended to prevent the issue from continuing to occur. The restoration process is run via our server database and does not require a patch to be implemented. We will have news of this very soon.


      While we are confident that the patch will prevent inventory wipes in future, we do want to use the weekend to continue monitoring the situation and ensure that no more players are encountering any related issues before we move onto the restoration process.


      A small patch (version 1.06) finally fixed the inventory bug on 04/15/2021. Unfortunately, other bugs have resulted from it.


      Multiplayer-Bugs

      New issues in multiplayer games:


      With this new patch, some players may occasionally encounter multiplayer connectivity issues followed by inventory items being momentarily invisible. This is a known and only temporary behavior that is part of our three-step inventory safeguarding measures.

      Restarting your game or waiting a few minutes and then restarting your game should make your items appear again.



      The fact that connection issues can occur is already known to the developers, however there are other issues:


      1. During multiplayer games, some status effects can't be calculated properly because they originate from the game's host.
      2. This means that if you play a skill/build that relies on your ammo replenishing, this mechanism will not trigger.
      3. Especially when overlapping conditions (Poison, Fire, and Bleed), some effects will not trigger. This also causes all effects based on conditions to fail.
