New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on November 06, 2021) follows:

The Crew 2 — sequel to 2014’s The Crew —  is a massively multiplayer racing video game developed by Ivory Tower and published by Ubisoft.

Released in 2018, The Crew 2 is available on different gaming platforms including Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Stadia.

It is an open-world racing video game set in the streets of the United States. The game allows players to race with a variety of vehicles including cars, bikes, motorboats, and airplanes.


Unfortunately, not all is well with The Crew 2 as there have been some complaints about Low Poly Golden Smoke awards being disappeared or missing from inventory.

Here are some reports for reference:


I did the race and I didn’t even get it what the heck ivory tower. How do I claim the reward (it’s from a race you do in the summit) the smoke is the low poly gold tire smoke. (Source)

I finished the race, it shows a green tick next to the reward. Yet when I checked almost all of the vehicles’s vanity customizations it doesn’t show up anywhere. Is it a bug? (Source)

Available in ICON 1 fame level, LIVE summit is a weekly PvE competition that players can access via the News or Activities menu. Players are awarded Low Poly Golden Smoke in ‘The Chosen LIVE’ Summit event.

However, those who finished the race in the event are reporting that they aren’t able to claim this award from inventory even though they received it.

Gamers say that they have tried all the vehicle’s vanity customizations and it doesn’t show up anywhere. So, either it’s missing or disappeared.

Luckily, the devs of The Crew 2 have acknowledged this annoying bug with missing Low Poly Golden Smoke award and said that they are currently investigating it.

Moreover, they will provide an update on this issue within the next two weeks.

Further, there are no known troubleshooting methods for the Low Poly Golden Smoke award issue. This means that there’s nothing to do other than wait for an official fix.

We hope that The Crew 2 Low Poly Golden Smoke missing issue gets fixed as soon as possible and we will update you as and when any new information comes to our notice.
