Medal Dectector Not Working Bug

Recommended Posts

I've been playing the collector missions for a couple days now and I've noticed a bug with the metal detector.  There is no sound or flashing and I can not dig up coins. I've even looked up the exact locations of the coins to make sure I'm in the right spot and  I'm still not able to dig them up. I've tried restarting my computer and  reinstalling red dead , still no luck. This is extremely aggravating because I just bought this game again on pc for $60 and I cant do the missions where I can even  make money... Anyone have any suggestions?

I cant even open collector's maps anymore. I'm lvl 20 as well. Metal detector doesnt work and i cant find Madam nazar on the map. If one of my posse goes to her she will show on my map again but i still cant open any collector map. I've put in a ticket for this but all they tell me is to check my drivers. I've also signed into my account on a different computer and still the same results.

So i play PC and i am having this same problem, i cant open coin maps or any map that requires a shovel or metal detector. I have tried everything and nothing works, when i try and look on the Jean ropke map (https://jeanropke.github.io/RDR2CollectorsMap/) and go to a location where a coin,necklace or family heirloom is supposed to be my metal detector does not make any noise or give me the prompt to dig anything up. if i go to the location of something that only requires a shovel and not a metal doctor, i can see the dirt pile but the game does not give me an option to actually dig anything up. 

Just a side note, i am level 189 i am also  level 20 in collector role 

the error message i get when i try and open any collector maps is as follows "This map is unable to locate any collectibles at this time. you may need to earn a higher collector rank to unlock more map locations"

any solutions would be GREATLY appreciated:)

Exactly same here - very weird - as I have multiple accounts - lev150 till nearly 400 all collector roles maxed out - playing on different pcs - both steam accounts same problem. The Epic games accounts still work. No idea how to solve that.
Another bug since last update - long haired men get bald.

I'm level 220. ~2 weeks ago, my metal detector stopped working. Now it doesn't turn on so I cant find any metal collectibles.  On top of that, eggs, flowers and digging collectibles aren't spawning either. I can see my posse members seeing the collectibles but I cant see them or interact with them. Sometimes I can see the wild flower spawn but its not interactable and is just greyed out. 

I am on stadia.

Here's a video of my bug - https://stadia.google.com/capture/13d390f2-ef51-4f4f-90bd-ac218af232f4. I know there is an arrowhead here. Even if its not here, the metal detector still should make some lights and sounds and it isn't doing anything.

I play on Xbox only and I am having the same problem, I am level 138- and I am level 20 on collector - when opening maps it tells me I have to be a higher level and my metal detector doesn’t make any sound no lights and no vibration... I can get only surface level collector items cards brushes ... what are we supposed to do?

This started happening to me two weeks ago. Both my level 276 and 111 are broken. Both maxed collector roles. Any collectible that is dirt, eggs, or flowers I cant get. My collector maps dont work either. I bought one of each. Im on Xbox. Gamer tags are VANightingale and Hi Men Hole. Add me, wouldnt mind talking to another person going through it. Ive restarted my Xbox, cleared data, even deleted my profile and redownloaded them. There is No way to fix this. Shovel, metal detector and maps are broken. Even friends cant dig up items for me that happen to be in boxes.

It’s almost like we have to restart the whole character... I don’t understand it happened a couple weeks ago and I could get coins all was fine but on our last coin it made a weird ting, and hasn’t worked since! I can collect cards and bottles and combs nothing past that and can’t open ANY maps, and talking about flowers I can’t see any flowers either?? Wth!?

I am having the Exact same issues as VANightingale on my Xbox. I’ve tried every fix I could think of, but I can’t use the shovel, metal detector, or maps. Even flowers are broken for me, and I can’t pick them. 
This seems to be a cross-console/PC problem, but I’ll list out details of the issues I’m having:

• Running on Xbox One (not the Series)

-Can’t open Collector Maps (gives a message saying that my “collector level may not be high enough) [Im lvl 20 in collector]

-Cannot pick Wild Flowers

-Cannot collect any Shovel/Metal Detector Collectables (Coins, Fossils, Arrowheads, Jewelry, & certain heirlooms)

-Cannot collect players or posse members collectibles that they previously dug up (I’ve seen people who can collect from the diggables that come from a box, however this does not work for me)

If anyone has any info on what the issue may be, please reach out. I’ll be following this topic for any future updates.

I play on PS4 and PC and the support for the PC for these collector bugs is really bad.  I've been playing the past three months and the metal dectector has only worked once.  The other bugs related to this like not being able to open collector maps, not see eggs, not see shovel sites or see any flowers to pick are very frustrating.  I've tried multiple sessions, different PCs and still the bug plagues my gaming experience.  Maybe Rockstar could rotate the items that are buried to help alleviate the missing hairpins at least.

I didn't realize how big this problem is. YouTubers are now talking about it. 

I really hope this gets fixed. I have not played the game at all since my last update. Signed in, bought the quick draw club, sold my collections, completed the quick draw club quickly and logged off.

FINALLY a fix for this horrible bug - turns out its deleting local files in profile and settings.  Somehow something gets saved in the cloud that bugs your metal dectector, shovel, flowers, maps etc.  Getting a new set of files for documents - profile and settings just fixed this for me.  PC fix is 3:02 min into the video.
