Died with Fishing Pole active and it disappeared

  • Character Name: Marabela
  • Issue that occurred: I was fishing at my usual spot and went afk (safely, I’ve gone afk at this spot many times before). When I came back, I was dead. I respawned and my fishing pole was attached to my right hand, but it was missing from my equipment view. I tried hitting F3, the animation went off but it acted as if I had no fishing pole. Even though it was still showing in my hands.
  • Time and Date: 2:15am Central Time, Tues 1/4
  • World/Server: Pleroma
  • Location where issue occurred: Cascade Harbor Rare Fishing location (Windsward)
  • Any steps that can be taken to reproduce the issue: none


Hello @ChrisATX !

Hope you are doing good!

I am sorry for the issues you are facing with the fishing pole.

I am enclosing a few steps which ideally helps with the issue-

  1. Run the steam and new world as admin. Then perform a steam integrity check for New World.
    Steam Support :: Verify Integrity of Game Files

  2. Make sure that your Windows install is fully up to date with no update pending.

  3. Reboot System.

  4. Uninstall and Reinstall New World.

  5. Flush DNS -
    Enter the commands in CMD in the following order one after the other
    ipconfig /flushdns

I hope this helps.

Looking forward for your response.

That fixed it! Thanks for the assist. :slight_smile:
