‘Gnarly Bugs’ Prompt Rock Band 4 Leaderboard Wipe

If you’ve been kicking ass on Rock Band 4 since its release this fall, Harmonix has some bad news.

The game shipped with some “gnarly bugs,” developers revealed this week, including the ability for drummers to “double-deploy overdrive by hitting the green ‘Overdrive’ gems at the end of dynamic drum fills.” Translation: it let you unfairly inflate your score and climb the leaderboards.

As a result, Harmonix will “wipe all of the leaderboard scores for all songs” as part of its January update, because the changes it’s making “affect almost every song, instrument, and difficulty in the game.”

After that, the game maker will make an “adjustment to our code that will allow us, in the future, to address song-specific bugs and issue targeted leaderboard wipes.” Throughout the spring, it will also “be rolling out some score fidelity fixes to individual songs.”
