Unit switched to ragdoll state in water will always sink to the ocean floor before recovering
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When ejecting from a boat at normal of full speed the player just turns into a lifeless ragdoll but does not get death screen and end of mission ; basicaly he floats slowly to the bottom with no control. AI in same team seems to continue about their business as if the player had died (after about 1 min of floating)

Units used : Attack boat / Diver Teamleader(player)

Additional info from duplicate ticket:

If the player is hit by a boat while in the water then they go into ragdoll mode and don't come out of it until they have hit the seabed.

player doesnt seem to die but sink to the bottom and then regain consciuousness ; its just a long fall then. Its not a death bug then but still a bug

The player stays alive ; that is confirmed every time ; and after hitting bottom player regains control after 10 seconds or so

If you eject from a boat you ragdoll to the bottom, only when you reach the bottom do you regain conciousness. I ragdolled 80m to the bottom of the sea when ejecting from a low speed and drowned trying to get back to the surface. This needs to be fixed for water environments.

Just tested this and confirmed on

Updated title and amended info from duplicate ticket to the description. Removed the additional info, since it was incorrect.

This seems to be a more general problem with ragdoll in water, not just when ejecting from a boat.
