If you have played Cyberpunk 2077 in any capacity, then you know the game is no stranger to bugs. While the developers at CD Projekt RED have cleaned up the RPG massively since its initial launch in 2020, there are still some lingering bugs you might run into every now and again. One of the bugs that plagued me as I was playing through the Phantom Liberty expansion was a fast travel bug that said the mechanic was “Unavailable” to use in Cyberpunk 2077.
Given how fast travel works in Cyberpunk 2077, having the entire service be unavailable is not something you want to see. If you’re unaware, you can only fast travel to different points around Night City by physically going to a fast travel beacon on the map. These beacons are just holograms on top of a large box with a screen on it, but you need them to work to fast travel in Cyberpunk 2077.
Experiencing this frustrating bug? Here’s how to fix it.
Fixing the Unavailable fast travel bug in Cyberpunk 2077
You will know you are encountering this bug if you visit a fast travel beacon and the orange screen on the box says “Unavailable.” Usually, the screen will give you your current location and then you can click on the box to select a new destination.
However, with the bug, the screen says “Unavailable” and you cannot select a fast travel destination. From what I can tell, this happens when you are in combat or being hunted by the police. The bug seems to arise when you visit a fast travel beacon while in combat and then simply remains unavailable even after the combat has ended or the police stop searching for you.
I was able to easily fix this bug by simply exiting out to the main menu of Cyberpunk 2077 and then loading my save back up. You want to ensure that you save before exiting, though.
Once I was back in the game, the fast travel beacon was restored and I could use it again. I can’t say for sure that this fix will work for you, but it seemed to work every time I encounter this annoying bug in Cyberpunk 2077.
At the time of writing, the developers still have not issued a patch for this issue, so you will have to continue using the fix I outlined above if you want to use the fast travel system again in Cyberpunk 2077.
