Mission "Status quo" beginning journalist won't mount red offroad
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I was just replaying the campaign but got stuck on the last mission "Status quo".
Kerry is able to pick-up the journalist (task completed), then when it goes and find the red offroad in front it triggers the voice script, however after he tells the journalist to get in ("C'mon, hop in!"), the journalist does not get in.

Also the task for "get the car" remains uncompleted, even after Kerry finds the offroad, gets in, drives a bit.
And for some weird reason the offroad is low on fuel, which is fine there is a refuel right behind - but I don't see the point.

Initially I was playing with mods (CBA+ASR AI3), then removed and restarted mission but same thing. Also tried changing difficulty from veteran to regular, same thing. Also tried going into other vehicles, driving around, fueling before pickup, and other random things, with no luck either.

I use Arma 3 on Steam, verified the game files (all ok), have all DLCs including Apex.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Campaign Episode 3: Win
Steps To Reproduce

Start Status Quo mission
Pick up journalist
Find red offroad
Journalist never mounts

Additional Information

There was a report a few days ago on the forum https://forums.bistudio.com/forums/topic/206311-status-quo-bug/ and someone replied it's a known bug though I couldn't find a reference in this tracker by searching for "status quo".

And while I'm here: the new UI for singleplayer campaign collapsed the East Wind campaign into one section, with two others for Prologue and Apex, so there's no more 3 episodes Survive/Adapt/Win, though I see you still have it as categories in the feedback template. New players might not know what it is, you might want to update that too.

Ping? do you actually look at bug reports? am I not reporting correctly? this is a blocking bug for finishing the campaign...

In lack of updates, I just played today, and it works now, so I guess it's fixed? Thanks?

It would have been nice to have some updates, like a real bug tracker. And it seems I can't even mark the bug fixed myself, permission thing I guess? sad
