New World has another highly annoying bug currently and until the devs do away with it, here is a workaround for everyone.

New World  has been plagued by bugs ever since it became available for the wider public and even these days, the game is suffering from numerous issues. Some have been around for a while, others pop up fresh after new patches.

It appears that the fast travel bug is of the latter sort as people started reporting fast travel issues following the Medleyfaire update. While highly problematic, it can be worked around and it's not that hard to do so.

On the other hand, the fix does require patience, especially if the bug catches you often.

The quick fix

We have found that there are two ways to deal with the fast travel bug but only one doesn't require leaving the game. In order to fix it without having to close New World, you will just need to find an enemy, let it kill you and then respawn at a camp, fast travel shrine or a settlement.

Naturally, this will damage your equipment that doesn't have the Indestructible perk but it's worth it just to get rid of the headache.

The longer fix

Just in case getting yourself killed doesn't work, you can perform a "hard reset" of your character within the game world. In order to do so, close New World and don't open it for the next 120 seconds, or two minutes.

The reason you have to wait this long is that the game requires roughly that much time to remove you from the game world. You can actually see how much time is needed for your character to be removed from the game world upon clicking the button to exit the game but we mostly just gloss over it.

In case you already tried closing the game and entering back but it didn't work, it's probably because you didn't wait long enough.
