NPC Exiles corpses disappearing after going offscreen

Game mode: Singleplayer
Problem: Bug
Region: PAL/AU


It seems whenever I kill an NPC Exile, regardless of location, if they go offscreen for even a second, their corpse will disappear, even if they’re just a few steps away, so I’ve had to risk looting and harvesting corpses during combat, since NPC Exiles are always in groups of at least 2. This has made looting/harvesting unviable in Darfari camps due to the sheer number of Exiles in these.

Beast and monster corpses seem to remain if they leave view, even the smaller ones like the baby Shalebacks and baby Hyenas, so I’m puzzled as to why this only seems to affect human corpses.


Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Kill any NPC Exile.
  2. Rotate camera or move away from Exile corpse so they leave your view.
  3. Corpse has disappeared.

Same happens to me…
Say Im fighting 2 mobs. I kill one, then if I literally turn around for a half of a second (as what happens in the laggy, stuttery combat) the body will be gone.
The bug recreates itself at random. It does not seem to be linked to one location, tribe, time of day, weapon, etc.

Kill them, if they disappear run out of range of view, a ways, and come back you will see them again.
