Some unfortunate Dragon Ball fans have encountered a glitch during the section of DBZ Kakarot where they’re tasked with finding Dr. Gero as Piccolo. Players are required to speak with four Z Fighters (also known as Z Warriors) scattered throughout a mountainous area, though they’re finding that they can’t progress after reaching the mission waypoint only to discover Vegeta isn’t there. This bug essentially nukes your save file and means that the game can’t be progressed through any further, but, thankfully, there is a potential solution. Here’s what you need to know about the Dragon Ball Z Kakarot missing Vegeta fix if you’re stuck on the Android Terror Arrives Episode 4 Android 20’s Gambit quest.
How to make missing Vegeta spawn in DBZ Kakarot
If you’ve fallen victim to this issue and just about given up hope, then Reddit user magicman1145 might have the solution you’re looking for. After trying all manner of methods to squash the annoying bug, they stumbled across a fix and proceeded to excitedly share it in an effort to help out. It’s worth noting that it doesn’t appear to work for everybody, but it’s undoubtedly worth a try nonetheless.
Check your in-game map for red markers with red auras nearby the quest marker. If you spot any, head over and be prepared to fight some challenging enemy mobs. You might need to stock up on healing items in order to prevail, though stick at it, as a number of users have reported that Vegeta showed up after winning the fight and reloading the game.
If you’re struggling to win the fight, it’s also been reported that you can flee after triggering it in order to achieve the same effect. This method appears to have a lower success rate, however.
If you try both of those solutions and still can’t get Vegeta to spawn, unfortunately, you’ll need to wait with crossed fingers for a potential fix from Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2.
