The Automatron beta and 1.5 update wiped out a ton of Automatron problems but gamers are still running into an assortment of issues with the add-on.

Over the past few weeks, Bethesda's Automatron forums have been filling up with complaints about various issues ranging from problems with the quests to issues with robot customization to crashes and freezes.
