Plant bug [PS4]


#1

Walked into a plant, and upon release my Maggie glitched. To other people I was moving around like normal (apparently), but on my screen… Well you’ll see. I was trying to move the entire time, trying different directions. I would warp a little upon using my jetpack sometimes, but not always.

Well, I haven’t seen that one before.

#4

I’ve had this happen to me before as well when I was using Bucket and posted a vid myself. Disappointing to see that it’s still happening.

Edit: Oddly enough it was the same stage as well


#5

Did you report it? There’s only one other plant bug I’m aware of and I reported that one too. This seems like a rare bug so it will be difficult to replicate.


#6

Sure did:

Right there. Mine shows what happens when the monster interacted with my character, too. Can’t imagine what he must’ve thought lol

Vid is in the actual thread


#7

Never seen this one. I am pretty good at avoiding plants though. Hope I don’t come across it.


#8

Yeah, I saw the plant but I just reacted to it late. Was arguing over the 1st dome :stuck_out_tongue: Sucks because we lose to this guy due to silly things, even though we know we can beat him. And yet again, something happens to give him a win on us…


#9

Huh, I think I had this on Armory(?) once. I didn’t think to report it… I thought my PC was being a potato and/or lags were happening.


#10

Months ago this happened to me on wraith trap, and like others I assumed it was a connection issue.


#11

Connection was fine. Issue only occurred after being freed from the plant. Upon restarting evolve it was fixed. I’ve also had an issue before where I was freed from a plant to get a visual glitch (search for “plants are evil”, so I’m fairly sure this is a bug of some sort. The timing of it is too coincidental, too, for it to be connection-associated. Prior to that I had no issues, and I rarely have any lag issues (if I do, then it’s because I forgot to stop a download, or the host is in the US or something, and it affects the entire party).

Edit:

On rewatching the hallucinogenic plant video, I think this may be related. It seems like the same issue but without the visual flashing.


#12

Aahh it’s evolve dude what wouldn’t bug out…now we have a plant lol

Talking of plants I couldn’t revive a downed hunter in a plant with Laz a few months back don’t know if it was fixed.


#13

Happened to me as Torvald, mortared the plant, walked into it for a milisecond and it blew up, this happened. I think its a glitch where you enter a plant and it gets destroyed immediately.


#14

Both of my times the plant wasn’t destroyed immediately, so not sure that’s it. I’ve destroyed plants as a hunter gets caught and it didn’t happen. I’m curious as to how it can be replicated.


#15

Hmm, thats odd… The couple times it has happened to me, was in that instance.


#16

I might test this out in a custom. If it can replicate it it would be quite useful for fixing it I imagine.

Terrible when this happens in a ranked. Screwed over by a plant twice in the same day (first game hunter got stuck in plant as medic was pounced. Me and Assault were killing hp regen for denial and supp/medic didn’t hear and continued chase ;-:wink:
