High On Life: How To Fix The Krubis Stuck Glitch

"High on Life" — a comedy-centric first-person shooter from Squanch Games — has certainly become a talking point in the gaming community. Overall, despite critics being completely divided on the game, gamers seem to have received the game much more warmly with it currently boasting an impressive 8.1 user rating on Metacritic. However, that's not to say Squanch Games' comedy shooter isn't without its issues, technical shortcomings, or game-breaking glitches.


Early on in the game, the player will be required to go after the bounty on Krubis, the manager of G3's mining operation. Krubis is definitely a more formidable foe than 9-torg — the first boss battle you'll encounter in "High on Life" — and will utilize many tricks that can potentially stop you in your tracks. These tricks include drilling through the floor and throwing a saw. However, many players have complained about this particular bounty being bugged and potentially causing a glitch where Krubis gets permanently stuck underneath the floor, preventing them from finishing the fight and further progressing through the game.

So, is there a fix for this issue? Sort of, but not really.

Unfortunately, there's no official patch

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any full-proof fix for the battle with Krubis glitching out and essentially breaking your game. Therefore, until Squanch Games comes out with a patch for this issue, there's no reliable way to fix it or skirt past it.


However, there do seem to be some methods that some suggest you at least give a try. You can try uninstalling and then reinstalling "High on Life" on either your console or PC, or alternatively, you can try to restart from a recent checkpoint. If that still doesn't work, some gamers have had success using a Glob Shot at where Krubis' marker is on the mini map. 

According to The Nerd Stash, the Krubis glitch itself is brought on by corrupted data in your save files. If you're playing the game via Steam, players are advised to perform a "Scan and repair files" action, which could fix corrupted save files. 

Again, there is no official fix or workaround for this glitch at the current moment. But be sure to continually check in for an update in that regard. And in the meantime, it helps to report the bug to Squanch Games directly, so the developer is acutely aware of the issue.
