Cyberpunk 2077 Slow Motion Fighting Glitch Uncovered


Or maybe it’s just a very weird connection in resurrections?

Cyberpunk 2077 being a little buggy isn’t really new at this point. However, what is astonishing is that new problems are always discovery, over a year, and several fixes later. The latest to be documented is a weird slow-motion effect straight out of The Matrix, which randomly slows enemies in the middle of combat.

This bug appears to be caused by the crouching enemy when attacked. In the video that documents the issue, a player starts filming an NPC and everything goes normally at first. However, when they are supposed to fall dead, they instead get up from the ground and very slowly fall backwards – just like Neo in this scene. Oh, and the NPC’s textures were barely rendered, which is just the icing on the cake.

The bug was found by Regnigsama on Reddit and indicates that the various fixes and fixes still haven’t addressed some of the more egregious bugs. It seems to have been found very early in the game, as the tutorial pop-ups are still showing. OP says it works on the Xbox Series X as well, so it’s not just the latest-gen gamers struggling.

Fortunately, PS5 and Series X gamers shouldn’t have to put up with these performance issues any longer. A next-gen patch is coming in early 2022, which, unlike the game’s launch, doesn’t appear to have been rushed. Last-gen fans won’t be completely forgotten either, as patch 1.5 is also slated to go live in the early months of next year. Both of these updates have already been delayed, which hopefully means CD Projekt Red’s superiors are listening to the developers and giving them all the time they need. Unfortunately, there are no details on the previously promised DLC, but these have already turned out to be much smaller than fans expected.

Cyberpunk 2077 launched on December 10, 2020. It is available to play on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, Google Stadia, and PC.
