Despite Baldur’s Gate 3 not receiving many complaints about glitches, players are now unhappy with one specific bug that hinders their combat.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has been one of the biggest releases of 2023 as the game has been massively praised by everyone in the RPG niche. With its intricate storyline and quality character design, BG3 has won the hearts of many since its release.

Being a turn-based title, it can get quite infuriating for players if they are unable to land their hits or can’t deploy their attacks in time in Baldur’s Gate 3. This is exactly what is happening to some players as an invisible door bug is making combat insufferable for them.

Reddit user ‘Shinasti’ posted about this issue in the Baldur’s Gate 3 subreddit, they said: “Once again begging Larian to fix their doors,” showing a screenshot of their Shadowheart being unable to cast a spell even though the target is right in front of her.

For context, some players have been complaining about a door bug since Baldur’s Gate 3 Patch 3 which makes their characters unable to attack enemies with the message “Target is out of sight” due to doors, even though some targets might right be in front of them.

“It’s infuriating when the game tells me I can’t target an enemy in another room because it’s allegedly out of sight due to the doors, but the same enemy manages to hit me just fine without changing their position whatsoever, smh,” explained a Baldur’s Gate 3 player.

Some players claimed that the door bug “just stayed broken” since the release of Patch 3, and has probably not yet been permanently fixed by the devs. Some of them even blamed the “stupid Moonrise Tower main doors” and claimed that they were “becoming a fireball shield” due to this bug.

Even though Larian Studios released a massive Baldur’s Gate 3 Patch 6 on February 16, players would be expecting another update to quickly fix this problem to get back to attacking seamlessly in the game.
