Elden Ring poison panties issue fixed

Update: The story of the annoying little whites is over, thanks to the big 1.04 patch that rolled out earlier this week. Among many other things, the update “fixed a bug that allowed unauthorized items to be passed to other players,” which a Bandai Namco Entertainment representative confirmed in an email includes the Deathbed Smalls. . It’s “not allowed” (you have to use a cheat to get the item into the game), and so while you can apparently still bring the Smalls into your own game if you want, you can’t. inflict on others.

Bandai Namco hasn’t said if it will rescind the bans on perilous panty victims, but I asked and will update again if I get a response.

The original story follows below.

Quick heads-up: If someone spawns in your Elden Ring game, drop a pair of skimpy skivvies on the ground, then dive, don’t repeat them, don’t pick them up. Several people report in the Elden Ring subreddit that they have been banned from regular online access play after claiming the discarded tights as their own.

The temptation to try the piece on is understandable. The undergarment (technically, the leg armor) is called Little Deathbeds, an absolutely immediately intriguing name that I think would make a great player handful. It’s also a very basic little kit, the kind of thing worn by legitimate Elden Ring badass who want the world to know that armor is for cowards. (Let Me Solo Her, the legendary first player of Elden Ring, is a perfect example.)

The problem is that the Deathbed Smalls aren’t supposed to be in Elden Ring at all. Like Polygon reported last month that they are part of an armor set that was cut from the game before release. But they can be brought back thanks to the magic of Cheat Engine: download it, log out, give yourself the object 1930300 and go.

Because the item isn’t supposed to be in-game, it appears to trigger an anti-cheat response that leaves players “quarantined”, meaning they can only play with other quarantined players. in quarantine. It’s not necessarily a big deal unless you want to summon another player – one redditor who reported the issue, JeSuisLePamplemous, said the much smaller number of players in the quarantine queue means that there are no summoning signs available.

Some of the people reporting the issue don’t know what’s going on, as they didn’t intentionally cheat and aren’t actually kicked out of the game. Unsoftban: Some redditors say yes, but JeSuisLePamplemous said dropping them doesn’t change their ban status.

The good news is that you’re not totally unlucky if you get the boot on the memoirs: JeSuisLePamplemous contacted Bandai Namco support about the ban and was told it would be lifted. The bad news is that if it happens again, the ban could be permanent – and the only way to avoid a permanent ban is to completely delete the save file.

It’s not a good option for anyone who has spent a lot of time in the game, so my advice is to play it safe: if you see a strange pair of underwear lying on the floor and it’s not yours, better leave it alone.
