Hotfix on the way! We’re listening.
No, you're not.
Could you elaborate, please? The topic you're replying to is several weeks old, and that hotfix arrived a good while ago. What isn't being listened to?
[...] The crash with the hand crossbow once equipped still happens. [...]
Are those the +2 hand cross-bows? I've been trying to figure out how to obtain them, but googling haven't been fruitful, and yet to find anyone who could give me a clear description. I'd love to hear how to obtain them since I know of the crashes and have seen save-files with them, crashing when trying to equip, trade, or loot those away from a player character.
