Same, but with grimoire and previously diamantine (no screencap for diamantine).

Same boat here, Excise Vault. Found all three, could only pick up the first one.

Yeah me and others couldn’t pick up the one on the shelf either.

same for excise vault

Yea i got the same issue on Excise Vault i believe it was, got another bug on top of that which was to be able to see the scripture trough the wall somehow, i added a freeze frame to show it better.

Yep. The same issue on “Spireside-13”

excise vault unabble to pick it up at the book case

Excise vault, could not pick up scripture from inside item box with sand clipping through or on sand dune.


Sadly, I’ve also encountered the “unpickable Scripture” bug. :frowning:

Accidentily traded Scripture with medpack and couldnt pick it back up afterword

must be a known issue by now then

Seriously. Anything on a shelf is just bugged to hell.

Noticed in several rubble spots on Chasm Station HL-16-11, I was also unable to retrieve Scriptures. One was to the left of the large doors leading into the space just before you get to the room that you fight the Assassination Target, the other is pictured here (It doesn’t show a Script but this was where one got stuck in a previous match)
