Can’t Fight Scaly Pete bug in Maneater is a problem that some of the people playing have been encountering in Sapphire Bay. It seems that, no matter what they do, they can’t battle Scaly Pete in Sapphire Bay, even if the game is telling them they should. Well, fortunately, the situation has a potentially very simple solution. We’re gonna show you what you should attempt to do in our Maneater Can’t Fight Scaly Pete Bug Solution guide.
How to Solve Scaly Pete Can’t Fight Bug in Maneater?
To solve the bug where you can’t fight Scaly Pete in Maneater in Sapphire Bay (and some other places), there are several things that you can try. For the record, before we even start with that, I have to point out that the odds are good it’s not a bug at all. Instead, the game expects you to progress far enough until it will let you fight Pete again. For some of you, it might be a bug, but more on that in a bit.
Let’s go through a checklist of stuff that you need to do to battle Scaly Pete; at least, in Sapphire Bay. The first order of business is to complete around 50% of Sapphire Bay. It seems that the game won’t give you his location otherwise. Second, you have to progress through the main story missions until you get the “Check in on Scaly Pete” step. Make sure to click on it in the quest menu for the location to show up. Lastly, some players have mentioned that you might need a high enough Infamy rating, but we haven’t been able to confirm that.
If none of that stuff works, then you might be encountering an actual bug. If that is the case, then you can really only try resetting your game. You might lose some progress short-term, but at least you’ll be able to complete the game. The developers will surely release a hotfix soon enough, considering how many bugs Maneater has.
