Starfield 'Eye of the Storm' Bug: What Is It and How to Fix It?
Bethesda’s space-action RPG finally launched on 6th September, five years after its first announcement. Even though critics dub Starfield as the “most polished Bethesda game,” it’s still a Bethesda game through and through, which means we’ll still have quite a lot of bugs. If you’re experiencing the “Eye of the Storm” bug in Starfield, you’re not alone. One of the most notorious bugs causing frustration among players is being stuck on “Wait for the transfer process to complete,” during the Eye of the Storm mission.
Players need not worry while encountering this bug during the Eye of the Storm mission as we’ve prepared a guide to help fix this issue.
What’s The Eye of The Storm Bug in Starfield?
The Eye of the Storm bug is one of the most frustrating issues players are dealing with currently in Starfield. The bug happens during a mission where players have to reroute the ship’s power by turning two power switches. What happens is that players get stuck in the transfer process after completing the mission, which makes it impossible to progress further in the game.
The Eye of the Storm quest pushes players with the choice to support different factions, making the bug worse. It’s not the only issue players are experiencing with this quest; audio issues and game crashes have also been reported by many.
How To Fix Starfield Eye Of the Storm Bug?
If you’re trying to complete the quest but keep facing the Eye of the Storm Bug and the 'Wait for the transfer process to complete' message, here’s what you can do to potentially fix it:
Load Old Save – The moment you see your objective marker acting up, switch to an old game save before you even start the mission. This will help you save time and avoid the bug.
Quit the Game and Restart – If you are stuck on the transfer process, try quitting the game and restarting. Load the latest save you had before the transfer.
Load to Main Menu – If you’re still facing the bug, save the game and navigate to the main menu. Load that saved file and restart your game.
Contact Bethesda – If the above-mentioned methods do not work for you, the last option is to contact Bethesda’s support and ask for help.
Sadly, these are the only known ways to deal with the Starfield Eye of the Storm bug. If these solutions do not work for you, you can only wait for Bethesda to update the game to fix this issue in the upcoming patch. A good way to avoid this bug in the first place is to save your game often, especially when you begin a new quest.
