Doom Eternal Argentas Paladi milestone reward bug persists almost a year after official acknowledgement, still no ETA for fix

Doom Eternal is the latest title in the Doom franchise. Developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks, it is the fifth game in the series and was released on March 20, 2020.

It is available on all popular platforms including Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and Windows.

Like previous Doom games, it is a first-person shooting game with the campaign putting players in the shoes of the Doom Slayer.

But as is the case with most Bethesda games, Doom Eternal is also infested with some bugs and glitches that ruin the gameplay experience.

Last year, Doom Eternal players reported a bug with the Argentas Paladi milestone. According to players, the bug exists ever since the game was launched.

People who completed 50 milestones in the campaign say that the game shows only 76/80 milestones are completed. User reports suggest the issue is currently affecting players on all platforms that the game is available on.

Has anyone found an actual fix to trigger this milestone? I busted my butt earning all the special battlemode milestones but i’m stuck at 76/80. I’m in the process of trying to 100% the campaign again after deleting saves but can anyone confirm that would work?

Hello, does anybody know how to fix this glitch? Ive done all 50 milestones in the campaign, I did all 21 in battlemode and I did the remaining 9 milestones too, but it still says I only did 76/80. anybody know why?

While Bethesda did acknowledge the bug back in December of 2020, it seems a fix never came out.

Back then, players had found a workaround that involved running through the campaign on a fresh save, but the developers somehow broke it after the release of the first DLC.

Fast forward to September 2021, Bethesda again acknowledged the Doom Eternal Argentas Paladi milestone rewards bug, but there is still no word on when it will be fixed. The developers have asked players to keep an eye out on their social media and Discord for updates.

This is really a bummer for completionists who just want to complete all milestones. Quite strange that it is taking Bethesda this long to fix the issue.

Is it possible that Bethesda devs have their hands full fixing Fallout 76 bugs and have little time to take a look at the milestone bug with Doom Eternal? Your guess is as good as ours.

Either way, we will update this space when developers fix the Doom Eternal Argentas Paladi milestone rewards bug.
