SOLVED [RESOLVED] Raiding crew spawns in dead | POST HERE0 Likes/68 Replies/837 Views
Raids and travel by water is broken. At some point during the game in England, you may find the boat crew in your home village located near the boat, almost all of them dead, laying on the dock. Nothing I did helped "resurrect" them back again.
The result of this situation:
a. No one is pulling down the sail thingy (not much of a boat person sorry..) so can't get under stone bridges along the rivers
b. Calling for a raid shows no one to help me take over a village, so I need to conquer on my own and worse of all, I cannot open doors or chests where more than 1 person is required to open them.
c. No boat songs, stories..
d. Seems only Dag and that white cat remained alive in the boat.
I tried the following:
1. Change boat appearance, thinking it's only a cosmetic issue. No deal.
2. Recruiting crew members from the duty roster in the village also doesn't help. They just appear on the dock, however they're (again) dead.
Apart of starting a new game or re-installing the game (I really would like to avoid doing either) I tried everything I can think of.
@talalc Man, that's so weird.... uh, how about going to the dock master and picking the new recruits from the roster? replacing the dead dudes with the ones vikings you've hired???? you have to physically click them to replace them. i see you recruited them, but did you replace them in the screen? how far are you in the game? and honestly, i barely traveled by boat.... horseback straight shot is faster i found... it's kinda weird ubisoft hasn't responded to this...
Wow this is so sad. I'm sorry it's happening to you.
My only guess is maybe they're dying in an incomplete raid or quest or camp somewhere? Since we're not alerted when quests fail, I think they just keep running in the background. I'm not sure of course, but I suspect this to be part of the reason people are encountering dead NPCs.
Maybe try to revisit locations where you called your crew (like raid locations) and see if they spawn there still fighting enemies that were left alive? Technically, you should be able to revive them in raid locations.
@kalex100 Hi, well, tried all the above suggestions. Nothing worked.
If I summon the boat for a raid, no one shows up, and if I summon the boat for a cruise down the riverside, it shows up with Dag and the cat.
Now, sorry for the spoiler, not sure how to cover that but now the boat shows only with the cat, sans Dag...
I am quite close to finish the main plot I think but for the full experience of the game since it's vikings and raids and all that (that's the main theme of this Assassin's Creed after all), it's money wasted for nothing.
I think I'd be better off with 2077's bug feast than this odd and entirely frustrating bug, which literally kills the spirit of the Valhalla game.
Frankly things were so much better with the Odyssey game. The plot, characters and the ancient Greek theme and world so much better made.
Seems this Valhalla is a half baked cookie...
@missm16 Nope, they don't. I think maybe they're busy being dead for tax reasons, LOL
Eventually I got fed up and started a new game. I hope whatever glitch it is, maybe since it seemed to have happened only to me, maybe it won't happen twice.
Still, Ubisoft dev team should be aware of this f***ed up state and fix it in code so NPCs cannot die really only respawn back in base village if they do get wounded/killed in a raid (though I don't think they were killed in a raid, just went AWOL at some point, so I found them "dead" in the village).
@kalex100 Yeah I hear that.. I think AAA games (or AAA wannabees) all suffer from bug-hell nowadays. Seems every major game probably should be released as early release with minor payment for the early copy.
I just didn't think Ubisoft would f***-up so much with this Assassin's Creed game.. So many times I heard myself going how much I hate this game, but still wanting to give it a chance.
Really everything is screwed here over the last game. The plot is forced, characters' script is bad, but mainly the blending system is unforgiving (guards will always spot you in the crowd no matter what your stealth def. is in the settings), and the treasure hunting with the doors/chests needing a key system is downright bad, with the constant need to endlessly search for a hole in the ground to reach the key/chest, not to mention the need to move stuff around to get to the hole in the wall..
It feels like they took the treasure system from Origins and brought it here with so much more frustration. Odyssey was so much more fun, also the stealth..
So what was 2077's most painful issue for you?
LOL it's funny but sad at the same time. No, you're not the only one with this bug. I remember seeing a video a while ago of someone's crew dropping dead (I'll see if I can find it for you)
So I got in the habit of counting heads after every raid to make sure they're all back on my boat. 12 raiders... 1 steering guy... 1 cat.. check! lol
Their crew jumps in the water and commit suicide. I found a few more also. Hopefully they'll fix it before all of us get this bug...
@missm16 Wow.. I thought I was a single incident. Thanks for the info. Jesus, I don't believe the Ubisoft dev still didn't add this really bad bug to the list of their known bugs.
This is truly a broken game. I can't believe it's a known issue for almost 2 months!
They knew about this till now and still don't acknowledge this anywhere. Should not have released the game with something so fundamental damaged in the game.
The actual viking theme is non existent some time into the game. This is completely messed up. I don't know if I can demand my money back after experiencing this, but this bug literally ends the whole point of this Assassin's Creed game.
You're welcome and yeah, hopefully they'll fix it once they see several people have the same dead crew bug. It literally stops the whole game. Even if we can clear the enemies without them, we still need them to open doors and chests. No crew = no raids.
Yeah the entire game is pretty broken. People have reported bugs in every quest so far. They really shouldn't have rushed to release it in this beta state. This is the only AC game I bought at launch (I usually wait a few months) and now I know why waiting pays off.

It's not only the crew that is dead.
Also quest figures are on the ground,alive and talking, but not playable.
I have this issue since update 1.1.0.
