No collision with infected in melee
Assigned, NormalPublic


Collision detection between players and infected seems to be bugged, they often end up inside you when fighting them, making them hard to hit - while they have no problems hitting the player. See the enclosed video.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
AI Pathfinding / Motion
Steps To Reproduce

Just fight zombies in melee. When they lunge at you they will be inside you unless you back away.

Hello Allantheking.
The issue is still being worked on internally.

Hello @Geez it seems that with the current 1.10 Experimental build this issue has once again become more common, especially when fighting zombies with knives. Something about the knife animation negates collision so the infected can phase into the player - where it can hit us but we can't hit them until we back away (which gives them another free hit).
