Prawn suit keeps getting stuck in ground

I'm playing the base game of Subnautica on Xbox Series X.

I have encountered a major bug. Basically when using the prawn suit in any alien facility it keeps getting stuck on the ground. I have to keep using the grapple to drag myself free.

I've played through the game multiple times on the older Xbox consoles and never had this problem . I think it was added in the May update.

I tried loading the game up on my Xbox One X and it was happening in that too so not an issue with the Series X. Must be the May update. I'm sure it's related to the fix in the patch notes to stop it falling through floors.

Does anyone know of a workaround to stop this bug happening?

It's really effecting my enjoyment of the game.

    I've been seeing this on PC -- Like you I've played through the game several times before and never had this problem.

    I didn't even think of using the grapple to unstick, I found if you run about 75 meters away and return, it will unstick... until it sticks again. I probably got stuck 10 times in the final base where you free the leviathan babies.

    Found this bug in the Active Lava Zone Alien Base, the Inactive Lava Zone Alien Power Plant, and strangely enough walking across the top of the Alien Cannon on the Mountainous Island. Seems to be resident mostly on/in the Alien Bases.
