Riders Republic is a sports video game by Ubisoft that was launched on October 28. It allows gamers to play five different sports including snow snowboarding, wingsuit flying, skiing, mountain biking, and rocked wing suiting.

However, lately, two new issues with this video game have popped up that are making it unplayable for some gamers.


Riders Republic Wingsuit not unlocking

Both Airplay and Wingsuit are the fun part of this video game that lets you fly and explore the open sports world.

To access the Wingsuit, you need to unlock it by earning 30 stars that can be done by either completing races or by playing in multiplayer mode.

However, some players are complaining that they are unable to unlock the Wingsuit in Riders Republic even when they are eligible for it with having more than enough stars.

Here are some reports for reference:


I have over 140 stars in Riders Republic so I should have had access to the wingsuit for a while now. The only one I can access is the funkies (which suck), and the game still tells me to unlock the regular wingsuits through “gaining xp”. Anyone experience this before? No idea how to fix. (Source)

Have a bug where I cannot enter the first air event, therefore am unable to unlock any air gear. Has anyone got a fix, I understand some people have had this problem with other sports but cannot find a fix! (Source)

As apparent from the multiple reports (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), this issue with Wingsuit not unlocking seems to be widespread and it is affecting many Riders Republic players.

Fortunately, Ubisoft’s support team confirmed that they are aware of the glitch and said that the team is currently investigating it. However, there’s no ETA for a fix.


Riders Republic Snow Gear issue

On the other hand, some players are complaining of bugged Snow Gear which is also making the game unplayable. As per reports (1, 2, 3), whenever players try to equip Snow Gear, the game does not unlock the spot on the wheel.

Here are some reports for reference:

Hey y’all, I’ve started playing the game and unlocked the winter sports career. But, when I try to equip snow gear, the game doesn’t unlock the spot on the wheel. Any known fix for this? I saw it is a common issue but I can’t wrap my head around how to pass through it. Thanks in advance. (Source)

So I’ve just done the snowboard tutorial and now the game forces me to start the first snow event, can’t do anything except press the buttons that the game tells me to. It then tells me to equip the snowgear but when I bring the ”sports” menu the snow gear is crossed out and I can’t equip it. Does anyone else have this issue or know how to fix it? (Source)

As a result of this bug where players can’t pick the Snow Gear, they are unable to progress past the sports wheel tutorial.

Luckily, this issue has also been acknowledged by Ubisoft Support and they said that the team is currently looking into it.


Moreover, the support team has said that they are able to workaround the issue by resetting individual accounts and asked those affected to send their Ubisoft user name along with a description of the situation to get further assistance.

We hope that Ubisoft fixes both these annoying bugs with Riders Republic soon and when they do, we will update this space with new information, so stay tuned.
