Extremely bright, white corona in the middle of the camera during sandstorm

Game mode: All
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: All
Region: UK (EU)

For some reason, there is now a blindingly bright corona that is fixated on the centre of the player’s camera, whenever there is a sandstorm. Below are two pictures showing the issue.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Set the weather to a sandstorm, or wait in the desert for one
  2. Pan and rotate the camera. The issue is obvious to see.

This is a known, and reported issue.


In those screencaps, are you in the middle of a sandstorm but not taking damage despite not wearing a sandstorm mask?

I have a theory, but I don’t know how to test for it. When you first make a new character on a server, you have to deal with catch-up time. There’s always a bright sandstorm during that intro period that doesn’t damage you. I suspect any time someone logs in, that fake catch-up time sandstorm is being activated, instead of it being any time a new character is made. There is no such sandstorm in Singleplayer mode when you make a new character, and I suspect it’s because there’s no need for catch-up time.

It’s just a theory. I have no idea as to the true cause.
