How to Investigate the Docks

To investigate the docks, and progress with the story, you need to examine a couple of clues. As your character approaches the clue to investigate it, he will just linger there indefinitely. This bug stops you from progressing the story, and no matter how much time passes, the character will be stuck in this position, and you can’t do anything about it from there.

It doesn’t matter which one of the clues you choose to investigate, weather it is the half-eaten fish or the tracks near the end of the dock. The game just kind of bugs out, even though everything else works. The weather changes, you can hear noises, and the wind still plays with your clothes.

How to Fix River Children Tale bug

To complete the River Children, and pass the bugged investigate the docks objective, you need to load the game again. This can be done by exiting to the title screen, or turning off the game, then loading it up again. This will fix the bug and allow you to complete the broken objective. Although it might be your first choice, since you can only open the map when the bug occurs, using fast travel and then heading back to the objective won’t work.

If you’ve fixed the problem, you can do the next objective – investigate the riverbank. This path takes you to the other side of the river. Spot the tracks on the ground and track the kappa, following the coast away from the docks. After the next clue, you’ll get to investigate the riverbank in order to track the kappa to the nearby forest. This is where the bandits responsible for the events happen to reside. When you’ve dealt with them and picked up the flute, return and speak with Shino to complete this quest. A rather sad story, but most of them are, here in war-torn Tsushima.

    This is the second glitched mission I’ve encountered. The first one was much worst than this and required I progress the main quest by three or four major missions before I could return to the second island to complete it. Very frustrating. I hope Sucker Punch is patching these for future players.

    I am glad I found out this is a known bug, I was afraid I had become a jiangshi and was forced to count that bag of rice on the dock…
