AI Emerging from the sea walks into rocks and get stuck.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When emerging from the sea with a team of AI units behind you, they try to take the most direct route to land... through rocks, and get stuck upon getting inside a rock.

I try to take the route that is safest to me, and a route that I can go to get in land (between rocks etc).

I wonder if the AI path finding does not work around/between rocks.

AI Issues
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Find a bit of sea with smooth transition to land that has rocks with gaps that you can easily walk through.
  2. Spawn yourself as a leader and a group of AI divers to follow you.
  3. Swim to the gap in the rock walk through to get to land
  4. Notice your team of AI walking into the rocks and getting stuck.
Additional Information

They avoid rocks under water (about 95% of the time) and even swim through gaps. Why cant they do it on land? Different mechanics?

Extra note: AI also seems to not able to do anything like crawl, prone etc. Once in the rocks that's it there may not be an AI there at all as it certainly seems they have lost their presence however they can respond via radio.

Yeah, noticed this early on. This needs more votes!

Agreed. I find it pointless to have an AI team of Diver's if they cannot quietly walk onto land, through gaps between rocks without getting stuck or being spotted by enemies.
