I noticed this bug for the side-mission "Check, Mate", which involves breaking into Archie Maxwell's house in Mourningside.

I'm prompted to hold E if I want to open the window, and then to tap E repeatedly to pry it open, but it won't finish no matter how much I tap it. This means the side mission cannot be completed, and you have to reload an earlier save.


This is due to a bug in the PC version, where your monitor refresh rate sometimes has improper effects on the gameplay. In my case, I had it set to 120hz.

Make sure your Display settings are set to 60hz and try again, and you should be able to pry the window open normally.

  • Not the first time that a computer monitor was the culprit of a "bug."

  • The strange/unpredictable part is that it's just one point (perhaps the only one in the game?) that shows symptoms, so it can pop up long after the changes seem stable.
