Farming with pickaxe or trying to kill stuff is a PAIN!

Game mode: [Online official]
Type of issue: [Bug]
Server type: [PvE]
Region: [Everywhere]

[Since this last patch whenever i try to farm stuff witch pickaxe it pauses then resumes. It’s super annoying!!! The same when i’m trying to kill stuff i just stop in current action and end up taking damage.

I roam a lot from offical server to server and I can see from what other peeps are saying that it’s happening to them too.

I can’t imagine what peeps on pvp are going through!!

I’m guessing it has something to do with the input spam, if so you peeps really need to adjust it so its not annoying as hell. Or maybe fine tune it?]


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:

I had the same problem earlier this day when farming with an iron hatchet, but as it was on a private w/ mods so I didn’t blame the core game first.

But well, as you report the same kind of problem, seems that this is a core game bug :slight_smile: maybe something with the hachet animation ? Didn’t notice anything stranger than usual with the pick or sickle… or when hitting mobs with my spear.

same here but started just today

I have advice for the farming, and a suggestion for the combat.

With any farming, hold down the left mouse button, don’t click it. When the treee falls or boulder is consumed, you are done without disruptions. Clicking it apparently sets of an anti-DDoS attack mitigation implemented with the latest patch, a much needed improvement.

As far as combat, timing is key. If you spam, the above is also set off. Practice and you will see what I mean about the timing. A problem had been noted this is particularly difficult with high latency/ping.

Good luck !




yeah it’s when u repeatedly tap the left mouse button, anyway i think ive figured a way around it!

just keep the mouse button pressed and voila!!

I’m also experiencing the same issues when it comes to combat as well. When you’re fighting and trying to go through combos, the mouse pauses and freezes breaking the combo, block, etc.

yeah it sucks in combat :frowning:

I really struggle fighting atm, I’m guessing this was done to stop some sort of exploit in pvp but its messing with the core functionality of the game. Think it needs a review!


got this game for free from a friend and this makes me want a refund lol

I play Singleplayer offline and the frequent pauses when attempting to get IN a attack, in combat is very annoying and hazardous to my characters health…
This needs a review big time

It was put in place to remove exploits during combat. Holding the left mouse (or R1/R2 trigger on PS4) helps with harvesting. For fighting, it requires more precise button timing yes, which in reality is better game mechanic than spamming the attack button and getting a combo. Timing the button presses now makes for a style of game play that goes back to old school fighting games, where timing mattered to complete combos and moves.

I’m not seeing this behaviour since recent pc patch!

Maybe you guys might see a patch on the ps4 too (fingers n toes crossed).

Yeah and i don’t care about timing i want to kill something before the other npc decides to walk over and attack me!
