Refreshing the thread as we've got a new hotfix ( and some issues have been addressed. Please update your game client to the newest version.

The original thread can be found here. This post will be updated with discovered issues and bug/issue threads will be redirected here.

We have installed an update containing several bug fixes and changes. The game will not stop, however on servers undergoing updates raid time may be reduced to 10 minutes. Please download the update via the launcher.

List of fixes:

● Fixed an issue due to which players could lose reputation with traders after completing the quest "Chemical - Part 4". The lost reputation will be compensated soon;

● Fixed and revised sniper fire zones near the lighthouse on the location of the same name;

● Fixed geometry of the river and ponds at the Shoreline location;

● Removed incorrect water geometry at the Reserve location;

● Improved splash effect when shooting at the water;

● Fixed lighting on the grass during rain when the SSR option is on;

● Rogues will now react to Scav-player presence at a larger distance;

● Rogues will now give players less time to retreat after warning them;

● Rogues will attack without warning any player who gets too close to a stationary weapon.

●Many players are experiencing lighting issues an their raids getting super dark. Submit a bugreport and comment with ticket # and anything you might think is helpful (video card settings ect)

●Daily XP bug Fixed

Known Issues:

There seems to be an issue with AMD users and graphical issues causing the lighting/shading to be jacked up with large areas of the game looking very dark. Weather effects seem to exacerbate this problem. Potential fixes: Switching texture quality to another setting and switching it back. Roll back graphics drivers. Clear your game cache.
Rain has been disabled until the issue can be resolved

Scav runs still getting stuck on "Awaiting session start". Force quiting the game will give you the option to leave the raid putting your scav back on cooldown. Reconnecting to the game your scav "is in" will just put you back into "Awaiting session start".

ID: hoyxnle

Can confirm. Past 4 scav runs have stayed at session start screen. Wtf

For some reason about halfway though a customs raid my character basically went colorblind and nearsighted it was like everything was in shadows and greyscale. No idea what caused it. Had changed some graphics settings on my monitor two raids before, but it had been fine and even when I turned the monitor settings back off, the game stayed messed up.

I just had a very similar experience on woods. I thought my GPU was dying until I alt tabbed. Mine was like the bottom half of the map was night time and the upper half was day. So there were blue skies and clouds but on the ground everything was super dark. I have some screenshots that I'll post if I ever find them

ID: hozq15p

That happened to me on lighthouse

ID: hp2a0e0

Just had that happen on Customs, was it raining in your raid? That's the only thing that changed in mine.

ID: hp2zt38

Happens everytime it rains. You guys on amd also?

ID: hp29xtr

Just had something similar happen on Customs, the raid before it was fine. But this time I loaded in and could see nothing, as if there was no lighting on ground level. High objects like tree tops and the smoke stacks were fine, but the only "visual" I had on the ground was reflections.

REQUESTID#13193675#, the only thing that changed between my last raid and this was that it started raining in-game.

ID: hp2ifdw

its happening when is raining or is foggy

ID: hp2bd9b

Happened to me too, at the start of the raid everything was good but suddenly everything started getting dark slowly rising up

5 : Anonymous2021/12/17 16:38 ID: hoxpnmg

All quests suddenly failed at the same time. Even the quests that can't be failed.

ID: hoy2xc3

Lol are you serious that’s… pretty bad

What about hunting matches? Are they bugged? Literally none of them are sold on the flea market, and I can't find any (looted dozens of stashes, cabinets, jackets, sport bags, etc). I need 2 of them to progress with the hideout, but I'm not willing to barter 500k roubles worth of keys for each...

ID: hoxtexv

They're just not spawning in containers sadly. You have to find a spawn where "flammable" items can spawn, which is a very limited set of spawns.

ID: hoxued2

Any hints on where that might be?

Sounds man. Audio is so wack right now it’s wild. I killed a dude today on customs because I heard him opening file cabinets in the 3rd story of the dorm and I was literally in the adjacent building and sniped him through a window. I could hear him slowly crouching around as if he was right next to me and then realized he wasn’t even in the 2 story.

On some maps I randomly hear single shots or what sounds like fully automatic gunfire that cuts out after 2 shots. Really hard to explain how it sounds like it cuts out with no echoing or anything, sometimes I hear that first pop of a grenade but no explosion. Lots of times has me stalking around looking for a sniper only to realize it’s phantom audio.

Buddy’s and I cleared the map on customs yesterday and we were still hearing the same glitched sounds.

The worst one was we were on reserve and a FULL FIREFIGHT happened in the ground floor of a building and we were on the roof and didn’t hear it! Went down there and found a dead player and 3 dead scavs. Crazy. Audio is like the most important aspect of a shooter like this and I really hope they’ve got some fixes on the way.

Edit: also my trader rep just plummeted and a bunch of quests failed for no reason at all lmao wtf

Edit 2: also want to point out that this patch an hour ago wasn’t for audio issues which is why I’m pointing it out here

ID: hoz1yv7

same for me, i started randomly hearing scavs yelling out of nowhere but it cuts off like after 1-2 seconds. It scares the shit out of me every time.

ID: hoxt5vi

ID: hoxvj8m

What is the extent of this bug? I just turned in a single lightbulb for Mechanic and I confirmed I got the exp for turn in.

ID: hoxwod5

Have you ran another raid? it will show you get the XP, but once you do another raid the XP is gone

Game is completely unplayable with AMD GPU's. Can't believe I bought a 6900XT to sit around and kick fucking rocks.

11 : Anonymous2021/12/17 17:40 ID: hoxzhhc

Still, EOD upgrade not fixed and no announcement for such thing? When people pay real life money and don’t receive what they paid for, that’s not a good thing.

12 : Anonymous2021/12/18 17:01 ID: hp2dac8

I've just had the AMD Graphics bug happen to me. Clearly has something to do with the fog. My game went back to normal for a minute and when fog reappeared everything went back to dark matter.

Here's a clip from my twitch account of the bug.

Here's my bug report ID: #13194214#

Half of the screen is black when raining.
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT GAMING OC 8GB - Latest drivers, but tried older ones as well. Did not help.

14 : Anonymous2021/12/18 17:22 ID: hp2g2jy

How about the darkness that overtakes 80% of the map from the ground up making it so you can't see shit?

15 : Anonymous2021/12/18 18:02 ID: hp2llix

Lighting issue for me as well. AMD graphics. Feels like I'm in a Sepia movie lol. Started when the rain started.

grey screen is unplayable

17 : Anonymous2021/12/19 02:42 ID: hp4f6qe

MFW literally unplayable on an AMD card because of the greyscreen issue

The magnification scopes are bugged on interchange, the optic image is very, very dark even there is day time.

ID: hoy32v6

Can confirm this one. Had to run my ass out of interchange because I pulled up my scope and was staring into a supermassive black hole

ID: hoy7bta

Very annoying definitely in the dark parts of the stores. It’s pretty much pitch black had to have my friends light up the areas with flashlights just to see

ID: hozxpxt

Yeah lost 2 loadouts before I realized it had to be every scope. Dark spots outside are pretty much black. Hard to return fire.

Lighting issue on woods

20 : Anonymous2021/12/19 03:20 ID: hp4jle6

Been having the lighting bug.


I am running an AMD Radeon R9 390 and an AMD Ryzen 2600

EDIT: This started today, and has happened in every raid I've been in. For each one it has been raining.

I've currently got a bug where can't hand in Chemical Part 1, I've collected the information and handed it in, but it's informing me I haven't collected the information. I went back to collect the information folder but it's not there.

I've also completed Postman Pat Part 1, but the 'Complete' button isn't appearing from Prapor for me to hand in the task.


- Postman Pat - Part 1
- Chemical - Part 1

Any info or help would be ace, or just if you've encountered it too! I relogged and left it overnight.

Add to the thread on the main forums for those with an AMD card to get more visibility:

25 : Anonymous2021/12/19 03:25 ID: hp4k65k

Why would my game look like this? Only started today, everything was shaded properly a couple of days ago. Did the usual stuff like update drivers and cleared the cache.

26 : Anonymous2021/12/19 03:39 ID: hp4lvdp

Issue with AMD GPU while it's raining, game becomes unplayable due to everything looking like it's covered in a coat of black tar.

27 : Anonymous2021/12/19 18:47 ID: hp758fs

Menu is super slow. Anytime I click something the response takes like 6-7 seconds. Moving items in stash, trying to insure gear, accepting quests.

28 : Anonymous2021/12/19 22:25 ID: hp80t5v

Can we upvote the AMD darkness issue so that will get fixed? The game is unplayable with any weather other than sunny. Please turn off weather effects until this is fixed BSG.

So I went to join a raid, got locked on the ready timer (not frozen, game just would not let me join) when I did join I only had ten minutes left, went to do a vehicle extract which did not work, (accepted money loaded up, but never left), then I took off for another extract which did not work.

After that extract I just ditched my items and tried to die, but after ditching my items, with 2-3 minutes left in the game, the match ended. Arrived back in the main menu with my kit intact as though the raid never happened.

I didn’t have any loot on me, so it was fine, but I can imagine a guy that found something nice would be rattled

end of raid sound looping still not fixed love to see it
