Ugly Baby Quest Walkthrough

Ugly Baby is a key quest in The Witcher 3. To commence the quest, the player must follow all of Ciri’s Velen, Skellige, and Novigrad trails. The quest is an umbrella one, meaning it entails other sub-quests such as Disturbance, To Bait a Forktail, No Place Like Home, and Va Fail, Elaine.

The first objective of the quest is to pick up Uma from Crow’s Perch. Afterward, go to the stables on the right side of Baron’s building and talk to the stablemaster regarding your taking of Uma. This is followed by Geralt leaving for Kaer Morhen together with Uma.

However, your character will be stopped by Nilfgaardian forces, who will take you to Emperor Emhyr. You must convince him that Uma is a strong lead in locating Ciri, after which you will depart to Kaer Morhen. When in Kaer Morhen, you will complete the four sub-quests in any order, but you must begin with Disturbance first.

How to Fix The Ugly Baby Quest Bug

The first solution is to update the game to the latest version. Also, confirm the game files’ authenticity on your device. Additionally, you can decrease the graphic setting and ensure your device has adequate system resources such as GPU and RAM.

Also, when you reach the cutscene, you can skip it by pressing Esc on your PC or Start on your console immediately after the scene begins. Apart from skipping the scene, you can restart and reload the game to an earlier save before the beginning of the Ugly Baby quest.

Suppose none of these options work in resolving the issue. You can contact the game’s customer support or head to online community forums for more help.
