Rainbow Six Extraction has players stumbling across one of the challenges they come across in the San Francisco section of the campaign. However, one of the unfortunate aspects of the game is that some challenges can get a little buggy. In fact, one of the most bugged and complained at issues in the game is the R6 Extraction sludge spawn bug, particularly affecting those facing the R6 Caustic Buddy bug.

This article will go through and advise how to tackle this challenge, reducing the risk of it bugging out, or what to do to ensure you get sludge spawns.

R6 Extraction sludge spawn bug – how to avoid it

Many players are coming across the R6 Extraction sludge spawn bug issue. It seems to happen when you get the challenge called Caustic Buddy. Up to that point, you’ll have no doubt come across the sludge in New York, with its purple brain looking sloppy oily body moving about, extending tendrils questioning your very existence.

Well, it doesn’t seem to have an issue randomly spawning in the early maps as part of Nest activities or Parasitic modifiers. But for some reason, that challenge seems to cause issues. So, the one tip that many are funding works for them is heading to San Francisco and select the Enterprise level, select threat level moderate, aka the second difficulty and go from there. What you should find is that the parasitic modifier will spawn extra baddies for you to deal with, such as Sludges via the Spontaneous Sludge modifier.

If they do spawn, then it is up to you to get the challenge done. It may need a few retries to progress. But at least it is decent advancement XP for your characters.

How to complete the R6 Extraction Caustic Buddy challenge

The biggest weakness of the Sludge enemies in Rainbow Six Extraction is to absolute rip ’em apart. They wont split; instead, getting torn into pieces and getting one-shotted. The easiest easy to do this is to blow them up. Spend one of your tech points on an impact grenade and you’ll find that they get annihilated. Alternatively, tackle a character that has access to a frag grenade, C4, or even a claymore and watch it disappear into oblivion.

If explosives are not your thing, then you can use a shotgun to complete the R6 Extraction Caustic Buddy challenge. Simply walk up to the sludge, stare into its brainy looking oozy body and unleash that slug into it. Think of it like clay pigeon shooting, against a wannabee brain bobbing about on the floor, or wall of you catch them like that.

And that is all there is to it for dealing with the R6 Extraction sludge spawn bug and how to complete the R6 Extraction Caustic Buddy challenge.

    Yeah, the mutation doesn’t help anyway. You still need to ping one on the roof, and for some reason, it doesn’t count for the “killing without dividing” task, when they spawn off of bodies.
