I have found one in every 10 climbs it does it
I enjoyed skydiving off the hospital ladder from the roof in Berezino when approached from a diaginal. It looked like I took a running jump off the roof when told to climb down ladder with rifle in hands but not in ready position.
This happened to me last night, It only happens when you have already climbed the ladder and want to go down. When you select "Go Down Ladder" the character runs off of the edge and lands on the ground, sometimes you die and sometimes you appear back on the ladder and can climb down.
Happened to me on the roof of the "school" in Berenzino, i tried to reproduce:
If you are standing a few steps away from the ladder (where you can barely get the "climb down ladder" symbol) it worked fine
When i stand next to the ladder and click "climb down" i had one time where the animation had me running forward and fall then teleported me back to the top of the ladder and i was safe. Second time it did the same thing without teleporting me back and i died instantly with full health
Happened to me as well on lookout tower at NWAF. Had weapon shouldered and went to climb down ladder. Soon as I pressed down to climb down my character did a "climb over" animation and fell to my death. I know I didn't press that key since my vault and down keys aren't even on the same side of my keyboard.
In version 0.35.115188, when having my weapon out and hitting the action to climb ladder, my character ran and leaped off the building. I've only seen this happen when holding something in your hand whilst trying to climb a ladder.
