Hogwarts Legacy Rescue Biscuit, Cage Lock Missing Bug

The “Take the Biscuit” quest is a rather peculiar one. There’s a goblin named Garnuff near the western bridge in Hogsmeade who’s crying about his “biscuit”. The “biscuit” in question is actually a mooncalf, which you’ll need to rescue from poachers. However, there’s a Take the Biscuit quest bug, as many players can’t complete it due to the missing cage lock glitch. Here’s what we know about it.

Hogwarts Legacy, Rescue Biscuit, No Lock on Cage Bug

So, is there a way to fix the Take The Biscuit side quest? The good news is that this side quest is a relatively minor one, so you are not really missing much if you are unable to complete it due to a bug. However, many players are “completionists”, and they want to finish every side quest and find every collectable. If this is you, then you’re probably annoyed by this bug. And, unfortunately, we have bad news for you. At the moment, it seems that there’s no workaround for this bug, and you will not be able to complete it until the developers release a fix.

The missing cage lock bug in the “Take The Biscuit” side quest in Hogwarts Legacy occurs for players who have previously cleared the poacher camp where Biscuit the Mooncalf was kept locked. And although the camp will respawn once you accept the quest, the cage lock will not. Hence, you will not be able to unlock the cage and rescue Biscuit.

“I cleared out the Poacher Camp a long time ago,” says Reddit user u/TaigasPantsu. “When they respawned the Poachers, they didn’t respawn a lock on the cage. So now there’s no way to get the Mooncalves out of the cage because there is no lock to pick.” For now, there’s not much you can do, expect to wait for it to be fixed.
