Okay, that is the bug I’ve seen as well - no video required.

hey, I've never seen this mentioned by how come for ps4 I have to select uncap framerate every time I log on?

I thought we fixed that in 2.3 -- let me check. We have some improvements for that mode coming in a few weeks :)

I play on PS4 and it is a pretty bad experience (bug wise) compared to PC, especially after the update.

Pre-update bugs that are still in the game.

  1. Will not pick up items after killing an enemy, or at the start of a match. This happens randomly.

  2. Cannot shoot your weapon at the start of a match sometimes.

  3. Opening a chest and trying to collect the loot but it keeps trying to open the chest.

  4. Lag delay when trying to build quick and loot quick.

  5. Breaking down resources (especially hay stacks), there’s a delay after you destroy it before it actually disappears.

Post-update bugs encountered so far.

  1. When building and trying to cycle to stairs, it glitches sometimes and will go back to the floor piece after cycling to stairs and other times it will show you have wall selected when you cycle to stairs but the stairs will actually be out.

  2. Picking up weapons (for sure a shotgun) after killing enemies it will glitch out and keep reloading the weapon even after it’s at max or you’ve already reloaded it.

I’m not trying to bitch, I love this game. But it’s very annoying playing with all these bugs especially the ones that haven’t been acknowledged yet but have been in the game for awhile. I just want the devs award of these issues. Please upvote for visibility.

Let me start by saying that I agree with you that we need to focus more on quality of life and bug fixes!

Would you mind posting what http://cloudping.info shows for you?

I'd like to narrow down where we need to focus to improve the situation. E.g. most of the issues pointed out I believe are related to a mix of server performance and network ping.

RE: building glitch -- that was a big screwup. I believe it only happens if you change the default to enable resetting of building choice. [UPDATE: it happens only with default setting]

Any chance you could post a video for #2? I want to say I've seen weird behavior with a weapon as well during a playtest.

We have just deployed this morning a PC-only patch V.2.3.1 which resolves a key binding issue for AZERTY/FR keyboards.

So, if you have a AZERTY keyboard you can't probably not switching your weapons with your keyboard.

The solution ! : Go in the windows settings and switch your keyboard to qwerty (English keyboard) and rebound all your ;;&,é,",',(,-,è;; touch. than reswitch to azerty keyboard and magic its working !

Edit : if its working say it in the comment guys, thx

We have just deployed a PC-only patch V.2.3.1 which resolves this key binding issue for AZERTY/FR keyboards. You will most likely have to rebind your keys for weapon slots.

To switch to a QWERTY keyboard, enable english language on Windows and press Alt + Shift. Hope this helps.

Battle Royale Shortcuts problem.
Originally posted by blQze

Since the update, I can't select my weapons with my regular binds |& é " ' ( -)|.

  • When I bind them in the option menu, it works.
  • When I use them for anything else, it works.
  • When I try to assign any other shortcuts to my weapons, it works.
  • It worked fine for the past month.

I tried :

  • Unplug/plug back my keyboard multiple times.
  • Computer restart.
  • Checking game files.
  • Assigning the keys as secondary binds.

Is there anyone who had this issue and solved it? Can't find anyone with the same problem in the fresh section atm.

Thanks in advance guys.

Since today's update, I can't use the binding for my weapons, and I have to do it with the mouse wheel.

I use & (for 1) for the pickaxe, then é, ", ' (2,3,4) , for my primary weapons, and w and x for items, usually. But now, the binds that are on numbers don't work :(

we have patched this issue which was affecting AZERTY keyboards this morning. Your key bindings should now work properly!
