One unsuspecting Starfield player found themselves on the receiving end of an unexpected visual glitch involving Andreja. Starfield’s unforeseen graphical anomaly seems to have permanently removed Andreja’s head from her model, rendering it completely invisible.
Bethesda’s highly anticipated sci-fi game was released last month after being eagerly awaited for years by many enthusiastic gamers. Players were immediately drawn into Starfield’s gigantic and futuristic world in which they could embark on fascinating adventures in order to explore the secrets of the universe. Dubbed by many as “Skyrim in space”, Starfield certainly has many similarities to Bethesda’s previous titles, as the developer has a history of delivering immersive but glitch-ridden games. While Starfield’s bugs can be a source of amusement for some, they may also lead to moments of frustration, as one player just found out.

Reddit user retrosaurus-movies has shared a most unsettling picture online, in which Andreja, a popular companion in Starfield, has literally lost her head. According to the Redditor, the strange glitch occurred after equipping Andreja with a chameleon pack which is supposed to decrease the user’s risk of being noticed while stealthing. The Starfield player also complained that no matter what they did, the visual defect still persisted and could not be fixed.
The Starfield post has garnered lots of attention from the gaming community. Some helpful Reddit users tried to suggest several fixes for the bug such as saving and reloading the game or telling Andreja to wait in a place, then fast-traveling somewhere before quickly returning to the companion. Other gamers seem to think that the reason this model malfunction can happen is because Andreja already comes equipped with Rank 4 Stealth.
While Starfield has received some stellar reviews from critics, the game undoubtedly suffers from a few drawbacks. One notable issue that is easy to notice is the presence of occasional technical mishaps that can range from minor inconveniences to more significant gameplay disruptions. The Creation Engine 2 game engine, which Bethesda utilized in order to create Starfield, is considered by many to be a major reason for the game’s technological problems. This engine is hailed as an improvement over Bethesda’s first Creation Engine, which was the framework around which its earlier games such as Skyrim and Fallout 4 were built. However, it hasn’t entirely mitigated the occurrence of technical flaws. That being said, Starfield is still receiving regular updates that will hopefully severely diminish such issues in the future.
Starfield is currently available on PC and Xbox Series X/S.
