A common frustration with controller players is privilege of bugs, which some argue are far more frequent on controllers compared to keyboard and mouse. There has been an inventory glitch in the game for about 12 months and all the controller players patience are wearing super thin.

When controller players open their inventory, the game is supposed to take them to the first slot. From there, they can organize their inventory or drop items.

“However, with the bug in question, whatever the player last selected stays highlighted. This can lead to multiple items being selected at once, inhibiting smooth gameplay. It can also be a frustration if the player is delayed because of the glitch, only to die to an approaching enemy.”
