    @ubiexcellent He's hanging around Ravensthorpe and I can talk to him but the recruit button is greyed out, probably as I have already recruited him...

    Bjorn disappearing from the long ship Jomsviking roster happened to me once. I was playing on Xbox One, patched 1.0.4, and it was post-game.

    The issue kinda resolved itself after restarting the console; I don't know what triggered the bug though, because I was only fast-travelling around hunting and gathering iron ores.

    This happens on PS4 too. After a raid, it'll remove him from active line up. Just select one of the random generic npc from line up to replace it. Look at your list of available vikings and he'll be there. On very rare occasions, his background appearance changes to that of a generic, randomly created one, but his name and info is the same and it'll eventually fix itself.

    Other story-related vikings that can later join, once placed in your active line up, will remain, as will player created vikings. The Berserker is the only one I've seen that needs reassigned after every raid.

    I also have this same issue with Bjorn.

    @ubikobold I am also having this issue and now I am wondering something. I did not pre-order this game and it looks like you should have only gotten this quest if you pre-ordered. Is that true? Was this quest not supposed to be made available for someone like me and that is the reason Bjorn is broke in my settlement and won't stay recruited on my longboat?

    I don't see anything in 1.1.0 about a fix for this.

    Was kinda hoping the latest patch would fix this, but he's still not in my roster.

    @ubiexcellent Still in the same situation, Bjorn is at Ravensthorpe and seems to spend his days at the water side splashing and flirting with one of the NPC women. I can talk to him but the same screen as in my earlier post is all that I get.

    @wizlon67 Thank you for uploading these images, and apologies for the wait! I've forwarded these screenshots to the investigating teams and am happy to say that this issue should be addressed in an upcoming update. For specifics, please continue checking on the game's official website and Twitter page, since exact details have yet to be shared.

    Many thanks to everyone else that has added to this thread as well. As mentioned above, please keep your eyes peeled for details regarding a fix! 😊

    After I select Bjorn to be on my raid crew, it resets to the original crew. I don't have this issue with Birna or Finnr.

    I cannot permanently assign Bjorn the Berserker to my crew from the Crew management screen. When I do assign him everything is fine for a while but as I play I'll suddenly realise he's not on the boat and has been replaced by another character from the Barracks. I then have to go back to Crew management and re-assign him but he eventually gets unassigned again at random.

    @darren_evans Same here and this issue was reported multiple times. Unless my memories are wrong, Ubisoft said they were able to reproduce the bug and intend to fix it later. However, no news afterwards.

    I have this problem too, and its a bit annoying since we paid extra for this questline. Other than that, this AC is the best one so far, keep it up guys!

    Bjorn will not stay in my crew, I have been on Reddit and other people say this happens to them too, he'll stay in the crew for a little bit but after loading screens he vanishes from the crew and is replaced by a random NPC, please please please fix this bug it is the most annoying thing because every time I do a raid I have to go back to my barracks and put Bjorn back in my crew

    I have the problem with not being able to recruit Bjorn, and, I have a couple ideas about it...

    Most importantly, I suspect that when you "force" an un-recruitable Bjorn (whom still shows up in your crew grid despite not being able to pay the silver and recruit him) through the Crew Management, that is what creates the bug where you can no longer talk to the Barracks and the Ship Builder. I tested this, by reverting to a save about 20 hours before the bug started, then putting Bjorn into my crew a few times and going on missions, after doing this a few times I lost the ability to talk to the before mentioned "vendors", as well as a few others. Once I got the bug I reverted and havent tried "forcing" him into my crew again, and I havent encountered the bug.

    I also suspect that Bjorn being unrecruitable is a result of trying to recruit him the 1st time we spoke in my settlement after I finished his quest line, but I didnt have 100 silver (it was pretty early).
