Can't initiate final mission
- After completing all the requirements for the final part of the "Project Dagger" questline, the following mission does not unlock, preventing any further progress.
- There is no clear cause as to why this happens, as such it is advised to use multiple save slots and save before finishing each of the last steps of the missions (returning and speaking to the mission NPCs). That way it is possible to try again with an earlier savegame if the bug occurs.
- Due to a bug the games difficulty may reset back to easy on game load or saved game load. However the menu will still show "hard" or "nightmare" when the game is actually set to easy.
|Set difficulty to easy. Go back into the game. Set difficulty to hard or nightmare. Apply this fix every time the game loads. Some reports suggest player might have to go to another settlement to actually see the changes.|
- If the playback device sample rate is set to something higher than 44100 Hz, or the bit depth is set to anything higher than 16 bit, some sounds might not play.
|Lower the playback device sample rate and bit depth|
Overdrive not charging
- In some cases, Overdrive does not charge when killing enemies or using an Overdrive Infuser.
- It may be caused by missing a prompt to activate it during the tutorial.
- It may also be related to remapping the Overdrive key before playing the tutorial.
- If the frame rate is higher than 120 fps, the map becomes very difficult to navigate because of the scrolling speed being tied to the frame rate.
|Externally limit the frame rate through your GPU driver or other software|
