How to Fix Watch Monitor Bug in From The Ground Up Borderlands 3 Mission?

To fix the Watch Monitor bug in the From the Ground Up mission in Borderlands 3, you’re gonna have to get into a game with somebody who has already completed this step of the mission. Do a mission with your helping friend, and then leave and go back to single player. Depending on which person you play with, you’re gonna miss out on what actually happens in the quest. It sucks real bad, but that seems to be the only solution for it as of writing this article.

And I mean that. People have tried restarting the game with a new character, and no dice. Some have even tried completely reinstalling the game, and that didn’t work either. Unfortunately, hopping into somebody else’s game is the only solution right now. And, yes, you’re pretty much guaranteed to miss out on a certain portion of the game. Told you you’re not gonna like it. If you do have another solution, please let us now in the comments. We’d love to know of any less painful solution.

    I just joined a friend’s game – completed the quest together. Worked fine, as it always worked for him 🙂 Now I can continue on my own solo game after the mission.
