Instant Trip Bug

Post by Danger Ross » Sat May 11, 2019 1:31 am

I Have little idea as to how it's triggered or how it happened exactly in the first place. The person who was affected left the server before saying anything about it. What appeared to happen:
The player was hit in the back by a thrown bottle and "tripped" backwards from a standing position, flipping over after flying about two SFD feet into the air. Afterwards, whenever they hit the perfectly straight horizontal ground they would bounce up with the same horizontal velocity and to the same height each time. Essentially they skipped across the ground like a flat pebble across water until falling off the edge of the map. It was pretty comical.

I have no solid proof of this happening via recording but I do know some witnesses. (Nade and Shazzer)

Perhaps you should have waited to make the post after you’d acquired the video evidence. It’s kind of hard to understand what you mean. Please don’t take any offense from me saying any of this.

It could also be a script for all I know. As I have never seen anything like it I will just have to wait for further information.

It seems to be extremely rare so catching video evidence is almost impossible. For more context this occured on "EBomb's Versus" server.
Treat this post as an archive for anyone interested in this phenomenon.

I've seen this too, it's quite hard to see this. If it is what I'm thinking that is probably related to the player's connection, weird stuff do indeed happen with lagged people, but thats just my supposition. I will be recording in background next time I'm playing and post it if I get it.
