Unsolved Bug Report: Unique Longship Raiders' Shields Can Break in Combat, This Causes Their Shields to be Invisible when Bracing.0 Likes/4 Replies/40 ViewsOriginal poster SkywardSoul 82 posts
The unique raiders that you can along throughout the main story can have their shields broken in combat. This causes the same raiders to have "invisible shields" when they are bracing on the longship. The bug seems to affect Rollo, Vili, and Bjorn (this is the guy you unlock from the Berserker Pre-order quest). It does not seem to happen with Birna from my attempts to recreate the bug with her, and I can't test the bug with Finnr as I did not make the right choices in the story to unlock him for my ship. I've seen this bug in the game since launch, and it is still in the game since the previous patch, 1.2.2. I just recently figured the cause of the bug, and decided to report it.
Here is a clip showing Rollo's shield being damaged, and then at 0:14 he throws it away because it is broken.

@ubi-mercury The save is uploaded to the cloud, but I don't think that the issue is related to my save. I've shown the cause of bug in my clip, I believe that other people could replicate the glitch with their save game by just doing exactly what I did in the video (taking the unique raiders that I mentioned, such as Vili, Rollo, and Bjorn, on raids until their shields break, and then brace while on the longship).
