How to Fix the Invisible Enemies Bug in Elden Ring

There are a few makeshift ways to fix the Invisible Enemies bug in Elden Ring:

Check Graphics Settings

Make sure Elden Ring graphics settings associated with texture and draw distance are set in accordance with your system specification.

For low-end PCs, it’s better to lower these settings so that the game can load textures faster. Also, if you have SSD mounted on your PC, it’s better to install Elden Ring on that drive, as they greatly help with texture loading. 

Re-integrate Game Files

Open your Steam library and re-integrate, aka verify the game files. Sometimes the game files for a particular segment are broken during the download process, and because of that, players face texture-related issues. 

Play the Waiting Game

Sometimes when you enter a new area, encountering texture popping, it’s better to wait for a little and let your system load the assets. 

Restart the Game

The good old “restart.” When you don’t know what’s wrong with your game or system, it’s better to restart, as sometimes it fixes the issue. 

Let the Developers Handle It

Issues like invisible enemies are sometimes related to bugs that are present in the core game. So, if the above fixes don’t work, you have to wait till FromSoftware officially addresses the issue and releases a patch to fix it. 

Elden Ring is a roleplaying game currently available on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and PC platforms.
