No Knock Out Bar 2020

No Knock-out Bar Bug
North America

No human npcs have a knock-out bar that I have seen. I mostly tested this on starter area npcs. They aren’t special, no skulls on like bar etc. I lowered damage to minimum and beat on them forever trying to knock them out but they only die a very slow death for my efforts. Is there a known fix for this? From what I can tell, it’s one of the more important features of the game.

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. Start a Co-op game.
  2. Level up until you get to the point when you are ready to capture thralls.
  3. Go to the starter area and find a human npc.
  4. Slowly beat it to death with any knock-out weapon.

Any mods? I tested knockouts extensively with almost every truncheon and such very recently, and wak too, and it seems to work just fine?

Yeah there’s no knockout bar even without mods. Tried verifying files but it didn’t help.

Can you snap a quick picture and post it, mid fight? I don’t have that issue either, but would like to know more about it.

I am assuming, you have the first perk in strength and, if available, some level of blunt kit on your truncheon, but it should work with a wooden plain truncheon on most of the NPC.



I was using the knock-out spears and arrows. I also used a hammer that I saw a guy on youtube use. I just got on and made an iron truncheon to get that screen shot and it worked. The knockout bar was there. I suppose it’s just the other weapons that aren’t working but as long as one weapon does work, I’m good. Thanks guys.

Sounds like a mod change. Hammer hasn’t ever been a knockout weapon.

I don’t know about the arrows, but the Blunted Javelin should work fine.

Just out of Interest… has anyone here ever tried putting a blunted weapon fitting on a hammer?

Yeah the blunt arrows and the blunt javelin were the 1st things that I tried. They are both bugged for me as long as the truncheon works I don’t mind.

Sounds like a mod change then. Blunted Javelins definetly work fine in vanilla.
