BG3 Stuck Encumbered: Comprehensive Guide to Fixing Your Carry Weight in Baldur’s Gate 3

When it comes to games like Baldur’s Gate 3 with an inventory encumbrance mechanic, running out of space and losing your speed can be frustrating. Some players are encountering a glitch where they become over-encumbered, even when their inventory is not exceeding their strength’s weight limit. If you’re looking for a solution to this problem, here’s how you can fix the encumbrance glitch in BG3.

How to Resolve Carry Weight Issues in BG3

If one of your characters becomes encumbered without their inventory being full, there are a few ways to solve the problem. To confirm whether it is a glitch, save the game and drop the inventory of the affected character, including their armor. If you were truly encumbered, reload your save to avoid gathering everything from the floor again.

If the glitch persists, there are a couple of options you can try to fix it. Some players have found that killing the encumbered party member, waiting for the debuff icon to disappear, and then reviving them solves the issue. The character should come back without being encumbered, and you can return their inventory.

If you prefer a less morbid approach, you can completely fill the character’s inventory until they receive the maximum encumbrance debuff. This should replace the glitched debuff. Afterwards, drop enough items to reach a reasonable weight, and your character should no longer be encumbered.

These are the current best solutions for fixing the encumbrance glitch in Baldur’s Gate 3 until a built-in fix is provided by Larian. If you’re interested in customizing your experience further, you can explore mods or research the best bard builds to enhance your playthrough.
