Devlog #35 Fire Axe Bugs

Within a few minutes of starting to play the latest update I noticed two small issues.

  1. The Fire Axe has no weight

  2. When equipping another weapon while attacking with the axe, the newly equipped item disappears. I didn’t record a video but it happens when trying to equip any of the three weapons on the Firing Range and can be done anytime from when you first start to attack to just before the attack finishes.

In case it’s important, clothing items do not despawn when doing this and it does not appear to affect simply picking up items instead of equipping from the ground.


This update was released 13 minutes ago, and the community has already found this glitch.

Update: I crashed

I took a screenshot but apparently it failed and copied this log instead. I was close to this position swinging down and trying to delete the fire axes on the ground.


Fatal error!

Unless it was due to alt-tabbing with D3D12 enabled, could you email me the crash dump file please?

  1. Open Windows File Explorer
  2. Paste “%UserProfile%/AppData/Local/U4/Saved/Crashes” without quotes into path
  3. Find the most recent crash
  4. Attach the UE4Minidump.dmp file

I’m having an issue where when I interact with items I can’t exit the menu or move my mouse around image

There should probably be a cancel option for the pickup menu. But in this situation I can’t seem to exit the menu at all while holding the fire axe

No alt-tabbing involved before the crash, sending it now.

I’m also having the same issue as Nolan but that was after the crash and possibly involved alt-tabbing. I was able to close it but it was in a state where every item I looked at afterwards would do it until I spammed the key a few times.

Thank you for the crash file. I will debug it shortly.

Ran into that interaction menu issue as well. I think this is related to a change where interact input now gets priority when focusing an interactable object. Will get that fixed up.


The crash was caused by dequiping the weapon mid-attack. (Related to cleanup because the animation no longer needs to be refreshed every frame once the attack is done.) For the meantime not dequipping while attacking should avoid the crash.
