Known bugs

We are currently fixing an issue where Guillotine's Charge Skill does not deal damage to stationary boss monsters

Some lasers not being shown when Boss Destroyer and Machine Magician uses a star shaped laser pattern. The damage is dealt up to the star's apexes so players need to move far away or go to the center. We are currently fixing this issue as soon as possible.

The shining effect when Shuri is recharging cannon is excessive. We are fixing the issue.

Anvil: Vault Breakers is now available for PC and Xbox through early access.
