How to fix the bg3 scratch disappeared bug?

The bg3 scratch disappeared bug is a technical issue that affects some characters in the game. here are some solutions to fix this sisue

 Kill the strange ox at the grove

One of the simplest ways to fix the bg3 scratch disappeared bug is to kill the strange ox at the Emerald Grove in Act 1. This will ensure that Scratch survives and shows up at your camp two nights later. You can find the strange ox near the entrance of the grove, next to a dead goblin.

  • Load the game and open the console window by pressing the tilde key (~)
  • Load a save, ideally just outside your camp before speaking with anyone and triggering any cutscenes
  • After you run this command, remember to delete the files you added so the game stops bugging you

Use the summon scratch spell or the ball to call him to you

  • Select your character who has the summon scratch spell or the ball
  • Cast the spell or throw the ball near Scratch
