Thralls won’t place on archer posts


Basic Info:

Platform: PlayStation 4
Issue Type: Gameplay
Game Mode: Online Official
Server Type: PvE-Conflict
Map: Isle of Siptah
Server Name: 8121

Bug Description:

Thralls won’t place on the blue ghost on archer posts. They snap to the ghost (so it recognises the position) but nothing happens when pressing R1 to place. So the archer post will place on the crenelated wall, the ghost position appears, the thrall snaps to position, but placement button doesn’t work.

Bug Reproduction:

Open archer post. Snap thrall to position. Won’t place thrall.

Thralls have to have a bow in their equipment for them to be at a archer post. Could be as simple as that

Yeah I debunked that one. Each thrall has a bow.

Thank you for sharing this!

Can you, please, share us a video so we can verify the reported behavior?

Have you placed them in world yet?

I have run into this. I went back to it after leaving the base, and they slotted in just fine. There’s no explanation for why it works sometimes and not others.

Yes placed in the world

I will try that thank you

I don’t know how to record off a PlayStation but I will try using the phone

Sorry I tried to upload a video to the forum but got a message saying something about file type.

You’ll just have to take my word for it


make sure the bow is visible either on their hand or on their back, then try.

its a weird bug but easy to fix by just putting the bow in their hands and placing it.

Ok I will give this a try

Can confirm that holding the bow and trying to place archer does not work.

I am on PS4 by the way

Can you, please, send us a video through a private message?


As soon as I work out how to do that lol
