Grounded’s latest update focuses on bug fixes

Obsidian Entertainment has delivered a new update for its survival game Grounded that aims to address a few of the community’s top issues.

According to the patch notes, bases built on certain objects will no longer collapse after being modified, melee and ranged attacks won’t fail to register, and backpacks that fall through the world will now resync to the correct position. Additionally, bees now drop less pollen, stuffed insects can be placed on furniture, and Hoop’s hair will behave correctly in Photo Mode.

Read the full patch notes below:

Top Community Issues

  • Bases built on certain objects will no longer be considered “Unsupported” on load, and will not collapse after being modified.
  • Clients will no longer randomly fail to register melee and ranged attacks.
  • Reduced lag/hitching when looking at buildings in large bases.
  • Backpacks that fall through the world for clients will eventually resync back to the correct host position.


  • The Trail Marker for the BURG.L Quest: “Weed Killer Peak” will now be in the correct location if it already existed in your world.


  • Stuffed insects can once again be placed on furniture.


  • Bees aren’t as clumsy around flowers and thus will drop pollen less often.

Photo Mode

  • Hoop’s hair and other dangling pieces on chest armor should behave more appropriately in Photo Mode.


  • Hammer build icons are now included in the “Toggle Trail Marker and Backpack Icons” action.
  • The breath meter and the “Eat/Drink or Die” warning elements no longer get stuck on screen after respawning.
  • The “[Type] Tool Required” warning no longer overlaps the harvest resource name on the HUD.


  • Reverted the new day base music changes back to the night music to continue work on this for a future update.

Grounded is available now in early access on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
