Outriders' Golem bug is set for a fix in the game's next patch, according to Square Enix community manager u/thearcan.

Outriders Golem Bug Fix Included in Next Patch

The Golem skill blocks 65% of all incoming damage for a short period of time. Although it's normally reserved for the Devastator class, an equipment mod called Emergency Stance grants players the Golem skill when their health gets low enough. A widely reported bug is making the damage reduction permanent, giving players a huge advantage.

Some players contend those missions are impossible without abusing Golem, and Square Enix has announced no plans to make the game easier after removing the bug. As a result, players are worried Outriders will become unreasonably difficult.

Square Enix and developer People Can Fly have yet to announce a release date for the patch, which may also include the promised inventory restoration after another bug wiped players' item collections.
