fix conan exiles bugs

Conan Exiles is now live after 15 months of Early Access. Survival game fans can now enter the game and try to stay alive in a world where everything is out to get you. At the same time, Conan Exiles will test your patience as the title is still affected by quite a few technical issues.

In this post, we’ll list the most common Conan Exiles bugs reported by gamers, as well as their corresponding workarounds whenever available.

Conan Exiles issues

1. Combat animation issues

Many gamers said that the game somehow looks unpolished. Combat animation is particularly buggy and feels unbalanced.

Combat feels unbalanced, PVP fighting with a 13 damage weapon with someone that have a 130 damage weapon. Fighting with a 130 damage weapon with a monster that have 50000Hp ends i a endless and sensless Fight! Difficulty in this game scales only with the Hp of enemys, why there cant make special attacks or something, why there cant dodge. Hit feedback feels like there is no feedback. Unpolished.

2. Server overload

Players also complained about server overload issues. However, this is a good sign as it indicates that gamers are indeed eager to play Conan Exiles.

Add more servers please. I’m trying to play but all the officials servers PVE are full (40/40) !! I think i’m not the only player who don’t succed to find a server ?

If Conan Exiles servers are full, you can build your own private server and ask people to join in.

3. Fatal errors

Other gamers can’t even enter the game due to various fatal error codes.

The good news is that you can quickly fix fatal errors by deleting the mods folder in Conan’s directory.

4. Gamers can’t harvest animals

Conan Exiles is a survival game that challenges you to use absolutely all the resources that you find to stay alive. From time to time, you also need to harvest animals but that’s not always possible.

When I look down it seems that I am looking down, through my own body. Also am unable to harvest anything flat against the ground with a tool. This is most noticeable when trying to harvest an animal with anything other than a skinning knife.

Unfortunately, we’re not aware of any workaround that could help you fix this issue. Most likely, Funcom needs to roll out a hotfix to solve this problem.

These are the most frequently encountered Conan Exiles bugs. We’ll update this post with new issues as soon as new information is available.
