Ghost Recon Wildlands Known Issues List – Updated 01/03/2019

The more cases we are able to analyze for the issues we’re investigating, the more efficiently we are able to diagnose the cause. If you have any screenshots, videos, or relevant system files (e.g. DxDiag) of an error occurring, please share them with our Ubisoft Support Team or in the Technical Support section of the forums.

The following issues are currently being investigated by the Development Team.

[PC] Crashes with Nvidia GeForce RTX cards
  • Players are reporting crashes on PC’s using the GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card.
  • Dev Update: We are working very closely with our partners at NVIDIA to identify the reason for the crashes and to assist in creating a solution as quickly as possible.

    We completely understand your frustration with the NVIDIA RTX GPU crashes, as well as the ongoing nature of this problem and we'll update you with more information as soon as possible.

Stuck in Respawn Loop
  • Players have reported being stuck in a respawn loop when specific factors occur while in the Silent Spade mission.

Unable to Collect Kingslayer File on Second Playthrough
  • Players have reported being unable to collect a Kingslayer file during the second playthrough of the Silent Spade mission if they did not collect the files during the first playthrough.
  • WORKAROUND: This issue occurs when the player has the “El Commandante” mission also available. To ensure you do not miss any files, we advise you to finish “El Commandante” before taking on the Silent Spade operation.

Ghost War PvP

Sapper Mines
  • The cap on the number of mines Sapper can deploy is too high.
  • STATUS: Our team plans to reduce the number significantly to better balance the class. We will update with more information when we have it.

Sapper Drone Health
  • The health of the Sapper drone is too high.
  • STATUS: Our team plans to reduce the health to a level similar to other drones in Ghost War. We will update with more information when we have it.

[Guerilla] Guerrilla’s smoke screen doesn’t cancel sensor grenade effect
  • Guerrilla’s smoke screen does not cancel out the Vanguard’s sensor grenade ability.
  • DEV NOTE: This is a design choice by our PvP team. They wanted it to function comparable to the Echelon Scanner. If you have feedback around the balancing of Guerrilla's smoke, please let us know!

Matchmaking failure/ELO loss
  • In some cases, failure to create a match results in a leaving penalty/ELO loss.

Destructible objects become invisible when player moves away
  • In some instances, destructible objects may not be visible when moving away from them, resulting in instances where players’ bullets are stopped by invisible objects.

Completing incorrect challenges
  • Players have reported getting credit for completing incorrect in-game challenges.

Invincible leaves
  • Players report that when shooting through some types of vegetation, the bullets don’t hit.
  • DEV NOTE: This issue is tied to a complex system we use to determine how much cover objects/vegetation provide from bullet/weapon penetration. When PvP was released, we found that certain objects that looked like they should provide ample cover were not doing so for many different types of weapons, not just those specifically designed to destroy cover.

    In order to make this more enjoyable and intuitive for our PvP players, our team decided to adapt this system, which has resulted in a more player-friendly experience overall; however, certain specific vegetation types are more difficult to penetrate than is intuitive to the player. Our team is looking into possible solutions to reduce frustration with the invincible leaves issue. We will keep you informed on this topic when we have more information.

Laser scope misalignment

Rebel vehicle drop-off
  • Players report having vehicles dropped on them or vehicles being located in unreachable areas.
  • STATUS: The team is currently investigating possible solutions to improve this system.
  • DEV NOTE: Adjusting this system would require a comprehensive overhaul of several other key systems that impact the vehicle drop feature. We understand your dissatisfaction with this issue and your feedback is known throughout the Development team. We are still investigating possible adjustments that could reduce frustration with the Rebel drop-off system.

Caveira texture issues with certain scopes

[PS4] [PHOTO MODE] Crouching Teammates Glitch
  • Players have reported NPC teammates glitching through the ground in Photo Mode under specific circumstances.

[PHOTO MODE] NVG Position Reset
  • Players have reported that the NVG position resets while in Photo Mode.
  • WORKAROUND: This bug does not appear in co-op Photo Mode. If you would like to capture a photo of your Ghost with NVGs down, you can do so in a co-op session.
  • Dev Note: This bug is a side effect of a larger system setting that was implemented to make our Photo Mode as stable as possible. We have investigated possible solutions; however, they affected the overall stability of the mode in such a way that we were not comfortable making further changes. Our team has decided to prioritize overall stability and user experience in this matter.

    We know that this is frustrating for members of our community who wanted to capture their Ghosts with the NVGs down in solo Photo Mode, for that we apologize and appreciate your understanding.
