This bug has sadly been around since Beta (possibly earlier, but I wasn’t around back then). This specific bug happens when your pylon currently exists (read- is out and active) in a game mode, and then you transfer game modes.

As an example- OPR ends while your pylon is out? It will be bugged and unusable when you return to the open world. It will also remain bugged/unusable even when re-entering into an OPR/arena. The same bug will happen if you are in the open world and using a pylon, when you queue into an OPR/arena. Only a full restart of the client fixes the issue.

In practice, this means I have to fully restart my game client pretty much every match of OPR, which is really frustrating, because I usually will miss the next queue pop, and have to wait even longer to play again.

Yup seoken has summarized how it happens and my experience is the same

Only way to fix it is relog sadly, had same problem so many times

Yeah, thats pretty much the scenarios that i have found them to commonly occur around, instanced based stuff.

It is unfortunate that the only way to fix it is to quit the game.

I just hope for change, frustrations around quiting the game just to play the game are painful.

sometimes i have this problem too…

the solution was just to close the game and start the game again.

an issue that caught my attention: I have this problem every day in the castrum elite run…

Bump. Issue persists as of the most recent patch. 1/17/23.

Ahh sadly we are going to need to nerf light load to fix this.

They’re looking into the issue, but logging out for 3+ minutes should fix it.

Yeah, that post was made a month ago.

It also happens if you’re in the middle of Windchill and get pulled into an arena.

You walk like you’re encumbered and can’t use abilities or weapon swap.


Still broken after logging out for 30 minutes.
