Redfall players slam ‘broken’ feature – allows you to skip boss fights, missions and more


XBOX’S latest big budget release Redfall has been disappointing for fans with many choosing to skip purchasing.

It is currently rated at 64% on Metacritic, which is far below Arkane’s other games, such as Deathloop and Dishonored.

Jacob’s cloak ability has completely broken the game.

Xbox fans have criticised the lack of character depth and motivation, the number of enemies on the map and the sparse checkpoint system.

While it boasts an open world, the hostile enemies discourage exploration, and missing key features, such as stealth kills, make it feel unfinished.

However, there is one character that has received the most complaints thanks to his broken ability.

Jacob “The deadeye with an undead eye” is the game’s stealth character.

At first people found him underwhelming as his raven ability is unpredictable, and he can’t help out when playing the game in teams.

However, once people started using his cloak ability, they realised that he could easily break the game.

Jacob’s cloak allows him to go invisible at any moment. This will trick enemies into forgetting about you even after they have already discovered you.

This means you can simply walk through hordes of enemies without disabling any of them.

While the cloak can only be used for a limited amount of time, it’s long enough that you can freely explore anywhere on the map.

It can also be upgraded to extend the time, leading players to believe this technique was intended by the developers.

The cloak ability can also be used to skip boss fights at the end of missions.

Once your objective is complete, you can use the cloak to walk straight past the boss and use extraction to leave the mission.

Fans were already calling to boycott Redfall after it was announced that the game would only run at 30fps.

Despite this framerate, the game still suffers from performance issues with players noticing numerous bugs.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is another recent release that many players have deemed ‘unplayable’ due to performance issues.
