CLOSED BETA - KNOWN ISSUES
- We’ve been hard at work squashing bugs and making improvements to Dauntless. Thank you to everyone for their patience and continued support! Your feedback has been instrumental in helping us track down these issues.
- We’re still resolving issues around in-game chat and expect to have this fixed in an upcoming patch in the very near future.
- We appreciate everyone’s patience while we uncover progression blocking bugs. We believe we’ve found most of them at this point, if you are still stuck please contact [email protected].
- We’re still optimizing performance, especially in Ramsgate, during this time please try lowering your graphic settings to improve your FPS and prevent crashes.
- When redeeming a code on www.PlayDauntless.com, please ensure you are logged out of the game. Once your code has been redeemed, log back in.
- Please do not log into Dauntless from multiple places at the same time, it can lead to data corruption.
- Sometimes game servers take up to 5 minutes to properly start. If you hang on a loading screen and return to the main menu, please try logging in again.
- Occasionally the hunt board will not connect to a hunt. If this happens, please log out and log back in and try again.
- Behemoths may occasionally walk in irregular patterns.
- Many menus, icons, and controller support are still a work in progress. Please use mouse and keyboard when controller is not fully supported.
- Clicking on an armour item with elemental resistance multiple times will cause the resistance number to increase in the Loadout screen. This is a visual bug only and does not affect actual stats or gameplay.
- If Patcher is not updating correctly, rebooting your PC should resolve the issue
- If Chat is not functioning in game, log out and login again to resolve the issue
