Season of Plunder Content

  • Players who join a Ketchcrash activity in progress may become trapped behind a closed door until fireteam members begin the boss encounter.
  • In Ketchcrash, the health bar for the Security Optic may disappear or display inaccurate health totals if damaged too quickly. 
  • Players may be blocked from Seasonal progress if they return to orbit too quickly after completing the boss encounter of the Salvage and Salvation Seasonal intro. This can be resolved by players completing the intro again without returning to orbit on another character.
  • Players with a full Quest inventory will be unable to successfully pick up the Captain's Atlas during the Seasonal intro. This can be resolved by clearing Quest inventory space and acquiring it from the Postmaster.
  • The Seasonal introduction cutscene may have extremely low framerates when viewed by players on the Epic Games Store. This can be resolved by updating the Epic Games Store client to the latest version.
  • Players are unable to acquire Plundered Umbral Energy from the Season 18 Premium Season Pass Track until they complete the Season 18 introductory mission.
