Ronnie Shaw no longer merchant, can't initiate dialogue, unassignable

Recommended Posts

I apologize if I didn't do this correctly. This is a verified bug on the fallout wiki: https://fallout.fandom.com/wiki/Ronnie_Shaw. The wiki lists a work-around console fix on PC but no fix is available on PS4 or Xbox One.
I searched the tracker and this database, the issue hasn't been addressed to my knowledge. This post alludes to it but closed it because it was in error: https://afktrack.afkmods.com/index.php?a=issues&i=23168.

It has happened to me during my PS4 game. This bug occurs after all quests in the castle are complete and the armory becomes unlocked after The Old Guns.

1. After completion of the Old Guns, Ronnie becomes a special merchant, and is "assigned" under settlement menu as a weapons merchant with the appropriate icon. Her hours of selling are restricted to daytime. This is her normal behavior. You can additionally talk to her normally to access a basic, normal settler trade menu to equip items. So, she has both a trading/merchant menu and a simple barter menu.

2. If Ronnie becomes unassigned (the cause of the bug), she no longer serves as a merchant and initiating dialogue with her immediately takes you to the simple general settler barter menu. Her icon is now a red unassigned person. She cannot be assigned either to normal tasks (non selectable by workshop). You can not talk to her about anything. She basically becomes a generic settler with whom you initiate conversation just enters barter menu. Her simple barter menu does not contain her merchant items that had been previously for sale. For the rest of the game she will remain unselectable/unassignable and will not return to her merchant capabilities.

In my case, all settlers were unassigned from their jobs (all red unassigned, food and defense all dropped), and I had to reassign everyone manually. This also made the radio freedom person get unassigned, who eventually fixed himself. This Ronnie issue does not fix if you fast travel away or spend significant time away to reload the cell.

Here is video also reporting the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vaEd56OqB8
