Some Outriders players are reporting the continuation of a worrying inventory wipe bug that in some cases has scrubbed nearly 100 hours of investment into the game.
Outriders’ first big patch went live last night on PC and PlayStation 4, and this morning on PlayStation 5, and some players soon reported their inventories had wiped.
Affected players sound distraught, reporting that the bug has cost them loot gathered after tens of hours of grinding.
“Like thousands of others today first login after patch I was greeted by this on my Level 50 gear, 94 hour Devastator,” said redditor Ok_Entertainment_112. “Today I was going to be leveling my last piece of gear to 50. Me and two friends were celebrating our build completions.
“Everything gone, 94 hours lost, almost complete build lost, this is a joke. Naked at login, server can’t connect yada yada like everyone else.”

Some have said they will stop playing Outriders until this inventory glitch is fixed – and called for People Can Fly to add a warning to the game that appears upon login.
Im done with this bullshit , I was playing expeditions with randoms and then I spawned completely naked and the game crashed then I restarted the game and here I am 40+ hours pyromancer got his whole inventory wiped and can’t connect to the servers ….. I spent 70€ and 40+ hours from r/outriders
This inventory wipe bug has affected Outriders since launch, and it seems People Can Fly and Square Enix are having trouble squashing it.
On Thursday, People Can Fly said it was working on restorations for players who were affected by these inventory wipes. And in patch notes, the developer said last night’s update “fixed the multiplayer crash that can result in client players having their inventory wiped”. Clearly, it hasn’t done the trick.
Now, People Can Fly has issued…
