The complete in-game message reads: “Bug Discover: There’s at the moment a difficulty with animated poses which might trigger crashes. We advise you to unequip these epic poses whereas our workforce works on a repair. Thanks, Legends!”
An analogous challenge appeared final month, with Respawn issuing the identical recommendation on the time. Epic poses are normally geared up for every character of their customisation choices, however Respawn suggests equipping non-animated poses in the intervening time. At the very least, till the upcoming repair goes reside.
“There is no apparent cause – wanting on the code – why epic (animated) banner poses ought to set off this extra typically,” stated a Respawn developer going by RobotHavGunz on Reddit, replying to folks declaring the problem. “I by no means noticed this bug in testing, nor did QA, however I do know the bug is going on. And I can positively consider this submit – that epic banner poses are triggering this extra typically, as a result of the bug is with a safeguard to ensure we do not attempt to run a pose on a personality for which it does not apply. Maddeningly, it isn’t 100%… it does not occur each time. And, once more, we had no experiences of this throughout testing.”
There’s at the moment no indication of when the hotfix will go reside, so it’s greatest to comply with Respawn’s recommendation and cease posing for now. Though, with a spread of latest epic poses added within the ongoing Monsters Inside occasion, it’s fairly unlucky timing.
