Baldur’s Gate 3 Hotfix 16 Allows Players to Access Quest Items from Anywhere

The main change announced for Baldur’s Gate 3 Hotfix 16 is the ability to retrieve quest items from anywhere. This will apply regardless of whether the item is on a party member, in the camp chest or in the pockets of a character you’ve left in the camp. This quality-of-life change will prevent quest progression being blocked without needing to do some inventory management first.

Other changes include a few adjustments to story quests, particularly Karlach’s. In addition, a few bosses have had some adjustments and fixes. This includes one late-game boss fight that has been “cheating” due to a bug where some units ignored the turn-based mode. There are also a few adjustments to the epilogue, including a fix to a Shadowheart dialog tree which was only offering players one choice.

As with previous hotfixes, Hotfix 16 also addresses some of the bugs within Baldur’s Gate 3. This includes a bug that caused the game to become unresponsive for more kleptomaniac players stealing too much at once. Also a bug removing the appearance of naked people during the Dream Visitor’s first appearance when players are controlling multiple avatars.

Most importantly, Hotfix 16 has fixed a few save issues within the game. It’s not clear how much this will improve the save game issue plaguing Baldur’s Gate 3 players on Xbox, however.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is out now for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
