Fishing hot spot no longer correctly displays "Landed on Hotspot"

  • What is your character name in New World: Eliminator

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Iroko EU

  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Since the recent maintenance, if a fishing hotspot is active, when casting onto the hot spot, you still correctly get the bonus to capture time and fish like you would previously at hot spots, but it no longer displays “Landed on Hotspot”, if you accurately landed your cast on the spot. This “Bug” was achieved in many different Freshwater hot spots. Hadn’t checked Saltwater fishing to see if it was also affected.

  • Is this a bug or an exploit: A bug I guess unless intended removal.

  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: It is no longer as easy to identify if your cast is in or out of the hotspot especially if landing cast near the edge. Quality of life has been diminished to some extent when it worked perfectly before.

  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: Yes I guess. I was still able to fish, I was still able to get hotspot bonus, it was just less apparent if I was fishing in the hot spot.

  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:
    The screen shot or video would literally be of myself or my friends (who are all experiencing the same issue), casting onto a hot spot, with no “Landed on Hotspot” message occurring. Pretty self explanatory and not sure how a screen shot or video would help things.

  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Casting onto any Freshwater fishing spot while it is active (Fish jumping out of water). The rate of capture and everything is fine, it just no longer correctly displays “Landed on Hotspot”, even if you are fishing the spot and obtaining its benefits. I have fished off the spot, and then on it again, and I am 100% still getting the benefits, it just no longer displays the above mentioned.


Experiencing similar, can confirm saltwater hotspots also bugged.

Can confirm I experienced this issue as well.
