Get weird dots when baking

When I bake I get these weird dots around my decals, wel some of them.

  • My guess is your normal texture resolution is too small, creating baking artifacts because there isn't enough information to display it smoothly.  It's also possible the bit depth is too small for all the detail information.  Or, the details you're trying to bake are too small, also resulting in artifacting.  That's my best guess.
