Now that The First Descendant has officially been released, players are excited to hop in and try out the new looter shooter. However, some have come across a bug where you don’t get the premium currency, Caliber, when you purchase it. 

Here’s what you need to know about the issue, what fixes to try if you’re affected by it, and when you can expect to get your Caliber.

Why is Caliber disappearing?

Some of The First Descendant players are experiencing an issue where Caliber is disappearing after they purchase it, and it might be due to a server overload. 

As with a lot of new games on release, The First Descendant has been experiencing some bugs and issues with server lag because of the massive influx of players. As a result, your Caliber may be taking a while to come through.

The devs have responded to the matter on the official discord. They are not currently aware of the cause, but they’re working swiftly to fix the issue. You can check out the full message below.

How to fix Caliber disappearing

There is no sure fix for the Caliber bug in The First Descendant right now, but there are a few things you can try: 

  • Restart your game
  • Refresh your mailbox
  • Reload into Albion
  • Wait it out for an hour or two

If none of the fixes above work for you, then we suggest contacting Nexon themselves to see if they can assist you. You can do so by going to the Nexon support page, logging in with the account you use to play, and submitting a request.

When will you get your Caliber? 

You should receive your Caliber in The First Descendant relatively soon since the devs are working on a fix.

Keep an eye on this page for any updates, as we will let you know once Nexon have confirmed when this issue will be fixed and when you’ll get your Caliber.

In the meantime, you can check out the other Twitch Drops that are available right now. If you’re not fussed about this problem, make sure you know which Descendant to pick first, and what the best build for Lepic is if he’s your choice.
