Hey guys, for today I’d like to start from one of the funniest bugs I’ve ever seen in games for nearly 20 years. Actually, it’s in the name of the video by u/PetchyBoy.
That’s what he says: “No idea what caused this. Earlier today I updated Windows, not sure if that’d have any sort of impact. After it lagged me out, I validated game files and everything was fine. Launched it back up and the spawning stopped but the turkeys were still running around”.
Another not-a-serious bug is from u/mynameisjono1. He was able to achieve, well, let’s call it as the basement of the ingame textures by jumping through the wall in Genesis Instrumentality. He had to drown in invisible water to get out and finish the Expedition. As for the other players’ reactions, this seems to be not the only place where you can jump through the textures.
Now let’s talk about some serious issues.
