Co-Op to Single Player Collectibles


I’m playing on Xbox One, and I initially got the game to play with a group of friends. We jumped right into the co-op campaign immediately and played for a little making some solid progress into the game. As we progressed, naturally I would grab collectibles and weapons that areas had marked (these items are required for 100% completing of some areas). Later into owning the game, I naturally wanted to play single-player to level up quickly, as well as get some extra loot to remain stacked on meds and other items later into the game. The problem is, once I went back into MY story, none of the areas I had completed fully were listed as 100% complete. When returning, the items were missing.

For example, the first time it caught my attention was the area directly above the Saltholmsbro safehouse (AKA Salthomsbro), at which there are two weapons to be collected for 100% completion. These two weapons found in my co-op playthrough were the 44 Magnus and the Automatgevar 5 (both spawns I remember clearly). I collected both in my friends playthrough. However, when I returned to the same location in MY playthrough it told me I had collected neither weapon, but they weren’t spawned in the locations I had found them before. I searched high and low and could not find them anywhere (these were weapons I had in my inventory, as I was on the same character).

Now here’s where it makes me feel it is a bug, I invited my friend into my game who was not a part of the original mix of 4 we had. He immediately found both guns in the locations I had originally, and in doing so HE got me the 100% completion. By finding weapons that were invisible to me.

Naturally, 100% completion is something I would love to go for, but in the current state it seems impossible due to the fact that I am forced to rely on someone else finding the collectibles and weapons based on my memory or their looting skills rather than me being able to simply do it myself. All because I wanted to play the game with my friends on his story-line, and then return to my own later.


What’s the issue specifically just that you want to find the guns for mission completion?

Yes something along those lines for sure! It’s not that I don’t have the weapons/collectibles its that the game tells me I don’t have them and prevents me from obtaining the completion of specific areas.

Ah, in that case join a random multiplayer with a new character. You’ll be able to log them then once collected.

As far as i understand the original post, that’s what spawned the bug in the first place; he picked up the weapons on someone else’s map, witch apparently doesn’t credit him for the pickup on his own map.
Creating another character to join another map seems to me like repeating the experiment, hoping for a different outcome (Einstein’s definition of insanity by the way… :slight_smile: )

Yes! Its really hard to explain via type and I get that. It’s obviously something minor but regardless something I wished to bring up. It hasn’t interfered with any mission gameplay, just in the abstract idea of “game completion” listed by the game (which only really affects my OCD). Lol

Never underestimate OCD! :wink:
I would be boiling if i couldnt locate “that last item” that prevented my 100%…

In the early days, many of us did go insane since there were loot box counters as well. :crazy_face:
I wrote about those loot box counters in-depth here: Post the ammount of Loot to find

Minor for one, major for another one.

Due to this bug (weapons and collectibles registering only for host), i’ve skipped all weapons/collectibles in MP game where i’ve been client, while noting their loc, so that i can go in my solo game and pick them up, so that the weapon/collectible count registers in my game, as it’s supposed to.

Oh definitely understandable, when saying minor I meant it isn’t something that gameplay and combat pivots upon. I would for sure love to see it changed, especially since I don’t know if I’m capable of such tedious note-keeping while playing video games, that’s what college is for.

I collected 2 vacation photos on a multiplayer session but they didn’t show up on my collectibles, so I went on a offline session to collect them again and they weren’t there, I asked if this has happened to anyone in the discord discussion and a few people have had the same problem.

Platform: PS4

Description: I have gotten all 18 blueprints but my game doesn’t show that I’ve gotten the army runner. When I go back to where it’s supposed to be it’s not there.

Steps To Reproduce: I go to 3183, 3042 and it’s not inside the crate where it’s supposed to be

Host or Client: I believe I was in a multiplayer game at the time I looted it but I can’t confirm.

Players in your game: if it was a multiplayer game it would have only been one other person (I only play the game with one friend)

Specifications: Just a regular PS4

So I’m having the issue with not getting credit for a blueprint because I picked it up in a coop game, Is there any word of if they’re even looking for a fix or am I going to be stuck on 98% completion forever? Anyone hear anything?

Does this mean that certain trophies will no unlock?

Thank you for flagging and sorry to hear this is creating confusion in your single player games! We have created a bug report for this internally and will discuss how to proceed.

Description: After picking up a collectable or gun while playing in a friends hosted game, when I return to my solo game, the game will tell me the weapon or collectable at a location has not been picked up… yet when you go to where the item should be, it isnt there. (Because you’ve already collected it in someone else’s game)

I fear this error may end up breaking the game for completionists who want credit for collecting everything.

Steps To Reproduce: Pick up a collectable and weapon in a multiplayer game, where you are not host, then return to your own solo game. The collectable and weapon will be hone, but your game will tell you it’s still uncollected/found

Weapon there is 5* AI-76, currently obtainable only during “The Enemy of My Enemy” main mission, when the boat with mission item spawns in (weapon is in the boat).


This whole topic is about this bug.
