When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm)
Summarize your bug 3 Exploration Challenges where you need to collect 80 Arcanist Runes. Some runes didn't register and none left to collect.
How often does the bug occur? Rarely (0% - 9%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I don't know
What happens when the bug occurs? Arcanist Rune doesn't go to challenge progress.
What should be happening instead? Runes should register toward progress.

I have been collecting Arcanist Runes, but some of them gave only reputation, but no challenge progress. Now I have checked several guieds - I have found all runes in the world (more than 80 actually), but I'm still 79/80, thus I'm locked from progress in many challeneges.

There's more than a few bugs with progress tracking associated with Arcanist Runes.

 

There are some runes underground Monument Watch that give Arcanist Reputation and credit towards "Footsteps of Idris" but don't actually track in the UI.

 

Interacting with these runes in addition to interacting with the Arcanist Runes that do track with "Footsteps of Idris" will cause the Cortex entry for "Arcanist Runes" to reset repeatedly (updated entries will be deleted).

 

Edit - I have collected 80 / 80 Arcanist Runes and then some, but the Cortex entry is not displayed in full.

I’ve experienced the same issue on the PS4 with multiple runes. They don’t add to the library entries or count toward the challenge progress.

Yep. I'm also stuck at 46/50. It seems there's about 20 or so runes located in Hidden Places, but only 4-5 of them actually give credit. All the outdoor ones have worked for me.

Hello,

 

I have the same problem, I'm stuck at 45/50 runes, so a total of 75/80.
I used the following guide to verify the problem: Anthem 80 Arcanist Rune Locations

There are actually 5 runes missing to get the success, but which are no longer there because I have already collected them. The problem occurred when I had collected 20/20 runes in the second part, then found 5 more, but they weren't counted. At the next start of a new Freeplay the counter started at 1/50, so the 5 runes were not counted afterwards. I think the problem is the transition of the success from x/20 to x/50. This could also explain the different number of missing runes for different players.

 

Greetings,
Zodiac

Same problem here. I have picked up all extra runes that I could find in hidden places and I am still stuck at 79/80, where it should be more like 95/80. That and the heavy pistol challenge I didn't register towards the trophy on PS4. This is becoming more than frustrating.

Same for all dungeon runes for me. Not picking them anymore in hope of a fix, may be even during this year.

I wonder if we will be requested to make a video of checking each and every Arcanist  Rune location to prove to technical Support that we actually collected them all and did not get a credit for some of them? 44/50  checked all 80 places from video, re-checked every instance on map, witnessed how Rune in The Core did not added to the challenge progress...
