Unconscious body slides indefinitely
Closed, ResolvedPublic


A player was knocked unconscious and his body began to slide uphill at a walking pace until the player respawned. He said he was not hitting any movement keys, and when he woke up momentarily, saw the displaced movement himself.

This is happening on a regular basis.

I believe it is related to the WATER.

Dead bodies on land are acting as if they had died at Sea.

One corpse was swaying back and forth based on the sea noises.

I had this happen when I logged out while unconscious, and logged back in. I could see through my unconsciousness screen in black and white with a blurr while on my "game menu" (Esc) -- and my body literally slid away from zombies that would have killed me. I never regained consciousness; but was "safely" unconscious for about 15 minutes.

Happened to me in Mogilevka South East of the church, and I drifted West of the church when I got thumped by 3 zombies..

Happened twice on Sacriels stream and ingame for me, really annoying

I punched a guy down and after he passed out, he walked into the crane at the construction side and warped repeately into it.
myself is unconcious after getting ONE hit from a zombie. Waited half an hour for my mate to give me some epi w/o any reaction and i was warping all the time he said!

Friend dropped unconscious from dehydration, his body slid along the ground only stopping momentarily when it would path into a building or object until it slowly inched past it to keep going.

Did this for 10+ minutes until i hacked my poor friend to death with an axe.

There seems to be a massive bug where people are just randomly (and frequently) just dropping unconscious. This leaves the player with a black screen, but the player can use all their items and move around. Epi-pens or defibrillators don't have any effects on the unconscious player

This has happened to me a couple of times. Played with friends and as soon as i get unconscious/die i slide away

Something similar, although it looked as if he was running 10 meters then glitching back, then running another 10 meters. All he could see was that he was unconscious.

This one should get more attention imo. It makes it impossible to loot bodies, if they float thorught every wall.

i died to a zed and my buddy said i was just running then disappearing to the spot i went unconscious at. therefor he was unable to use an epi pen on me so i had to respawn.

Happened to me after being KO'd by a zombie while stuck in the eating animation. Slid down a hill and slid along a fence. Risked a relog, which seemed to fix the issue. Obviously this would not be something you could/should do in combat with a player however. Perhaps rather than sticking the player in a frozen animation, maybe make them a ragdoll whilst unconscious? Would be slightly more realistic and any movements would then be physics related or a result of desynch on the observer's end.

This happened to me after the 2013-12-18 update. A zombie knocked me unconscious and when my screen stopped being black, my unconscious character slid along the ground, colliding with buildings, until I logged out and back in.

At that point, I was not unconscious, just bleeding.

Really hard to save your friends when they're sliding like this. Please fix ASAP

Yeah this is annoying. I was in the same situation but my unconscious friend was just running some distance then teleporting when he got unconscious. His body was doing it over and over again. He ensured me that he wasn't pressing any movement keys.

Happened to almost all of my friends at least once; only way to prevent is to try and jam the character against an object and revive or to respawn. Probably the worst bug I've experienced so far.

I have seen this happen to somebody who was carrying a fire extinguisher inside a building, whilst bleeding. Once shot in the head the body would slide along the ground forever making it difficult to loot.

If the server goes offline when being K.O. and then rejoin you can even walk like you're not you can't just see anything.

I believe this is due to faulty/unstable internet connection. The connection coughs and client de-synchs

Can confirm.

I had this happen to a friend, the weird thing is when I went to bandage him I got a vehicle error.
