PC - "Agitated Advantage" and "Buried Underground" challenges not working

littleCT Member Posts: 1
edited December 2020 in Bug Reporting

Despite using the Agitation perk and hooking several survivors in the basement, the Agitated Advantage challenge won't be completed in the archives. I've met the requirements for the challenge in two different matches now, but both times the challenge did not get fulfilled for some reason. This has only happened twice so far, but I will continue testing to see if the issue resolves itself.

UPDATE: Upon further playing, I've noticed that the Buried Underground challenge is also no longer working. I have tried multiple times in games where I've done part or all of the challenge, but it has not worked. I have tested this while using both The Trapper and The Pig.

    I have just experienced the same thing. Two games where I got 5 hooks in the basement while using agitation and the challenge wasn't completed. The second game I believe I got around 10 hooks in the basement (very domintated trial) but still nothing.

    Same thing just happened to me. Well over 5 hooks using agitation (i think 7 or 8) on the Shape. Did not complete the challenge. Was on steam/PC

    Got de-pipped for my efforts too...

    Is anything happening on this bug? I'm still having it

    I also have this issue, I made a different post about it as I didn't find this one at the time.

    I'm fairly new here. Are the devs likely to fix this quickly or post about the challenges not working ob that blog thing that starts up at the beginning of a game or is this kind of a waste of time to report?

    I tried asking a mod if I should bother posting some other bugs where you can yet stuck but I'm not going to spend the time and effort to record the places I've found if it's not likely to he addressed. I received no response which isn't leading me to think it's worth reporting

    Buried Underground on tome 1 broken. Hooked all my survivors at least once down there. Also did agitation a while ago and had the same issue.

    On PC

    I keep checking for some sort of response from either the devs a mod or even community members about if bugs are something that gets fixed around here and if there is any kind of time-frame for when these things are. Has anyone been around here long enough to know when or if things will be fixed. Went to google an old bug found one about the near death experience achievement turns out its still bugged and appears to have been that wasly for over a year. Is that an indicator about the turnaround time or that nothing gets fixed?

    I believe the problem with the Agitated Advantage challenge is a recent bug because I did it and it worked, but it's been a while. I have the same problem in the buried underground challenge, I already did with the trapper, bubba and nightmare and not complete. I tried to hook the 4 in the same match and it didn't work either.

    PS: Sorry for the bad English, it's translated

    I have had this issue as well. Only recently started going back to old tomes and I cannot get this to trigger at all in several games I've hooked on survivor twice or 2 survivors once, etc. Not triggering.

    Same issue. Tome 1, Level 2, hook a lot of people in my little basement. Playing on PC/Steam. Killer Trapper.

    I'm having this problem also, but with Tome 3, page 2. Violent Imperative. Hooking 3 people in the basement with Territorial Imperative. wont work

    Tome 1 page 3 Buried Underground for PS5 also a no go, although for whatever reason it DOES count (at least for me anyway) whenever I go to Silent Hill

    Can confirm Buried Underground (Tome 1 Level 3) is no longer working.

    I'm guessing from everyone's lack of response that bugs don't generally get fixed them?

    I can confirm that completing this challenge on Dead Dawn Saloon map will grant the completion of "Agitated Advantage".

    I have read that it will also work on Midwitch but cant confirm yet.

    Just did it on saloon it did work. Don't have another noose so can't try monstrous mayham or 6 feet under unfortunately. Doesn't seem like devs likely to fix anytime soon given the community's response I've gotten apparently they don't fix bugs quickly

    I have the same problem with the challenge "Violent imperative".

    Tried it on Autohaven Wreckers and Coldwind Farm, it didnt count.

    Burnt an offering for dead dawg and can confirm it worked. Did it on Freddy with tier 3 agitation with full perk loadout and addons!

    Please replace all Buried Underground Challenges so I can move on with my completionist life.

    I haven't been posting on the community for longer than couple weeks but everywhere seems to indicate they don't actually fix bugs I found one from over year ago still not fixed. I've asked community if I'm wrong but no one has said they actually fix reported bugs. I found an uncleanseabke totem earlier today too doubt they know or care about it

    I thought I just had a glitch, guess I'm not the only one.

    Trapper, laboratory, 6 hooks and 1 sacrifice. 0/3 progress on Tome III Level 1 😔

    I would also like to report that I have this challenge glitched as well. I have done it in multiple games. Please fix as this game is awesome!

  • wxnickxw
    wxnickxw Member Posts: 742

    Don't think they fix glitches some remain open from years ago

    Found a couple more uncleansable totem locations this weekend, figured I'd report them somewhere they'd be taken seriously. So I wrote a quick note and threw it into the trash figure it'll get a faster response that way

    I agree, Pls fix it.

    People have been reporting this for weeks with no fix. I don't understand how a fix for something like this -- a literally unfinishable challenge that you have to go to extreme effort for -- is not either replaced or fixed within a week of it being reported. A receptive developer, like say Riot Games with League of Legends, would issue a hotfix for something like this within days.

    Yahhhhhh they have bugs from years ago that haven't been fixed (Near death experience) it doesn't seem like bugs actually get fixed. I've asked a couple of times but so far no one had responded that any bugs get fixed. It's why I haven't bothered with the hassle of reporting uncleansable totems. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but they just don't seem to care

    I really hope the next patch comes with fixes for these. This bug completely halts your Rift challenges progress, until they fix it.

  • wxnickxw
    wxnickxw Member Posts: 742

    Based on other bug I'm aware of you need somewhere between one and three years for a fix. Unless someone in the community is willing to correct me. I haven't been posting more than a couple weeks my estimate is based on old unfixed bugs I've found

    I think it's general basement bug, I was doing the hook survivor during EGC and the basement doesn't count either.

    Same here. Got pretty frustrated.

  • wxnickxw

    Yah and they aren't interested in fixing it any time soon

    I am happy to report that update 4.5.0 on February 9th has resolved the bug! Time to finish some tomes ~♥
