... Really? I mean, are you serious?

So I'm playing through the campaign, and have begun to notice a few problems with the partner AI. Mainly when I'm bleeding on the ground, and Dom is sitting there staring off into space, conveniently deciding not to revive me, for, whatever reason. But it's not a big deal, you manage, right? So we finish a particularly manic firefight, and then I realize - I can't find Dom. He's nowhere to be seen. I check the tac-com, and it shows up as, "up". Regardless of which direction I face, he's still "up". So I look, "up",


And I see this. Picture quality too terrible? Can't make it out? I know, it's bad. So here,


I mean... what? No, that's not some secret snipe-point, and no, you can't just "go up there". I have no idea how this happened. Glitches like this are to be expected in any game, but... this is Gears. Hell, this is Gears 2. The second entry in a series loved by critics and players alike for it's frantic firefights and technical prowess. So how the hell does this sort of thing fly?

In all seriousness though, I'm in love with this game. I beat the campaign on Normal this afternoon and I'm planning on going back via co-op to beat it on Insane. I'm sure glitches like this are few and far between, but this made me laugh, so I thought I'd share it. Anyone else encountered anything like this? And if this has already been pointed out, I apologize.

I don't really think this is anything to really post a thread about with such seriousness lol, but still. It's a game, rather it's Gears or not. There are always glitched, just restart the checkpoint or something. I have yet to see a glitch in campaign/MP though, this is the first I have seen.

And secondly, Dominic is just superior. :]

Seriousness? Hardly. As I said, this made me laugh.

Playing through the entire campaign on co-op I saw a ton of glitches. The Brumak Rodeo achievement didn't unlock for me (playing as Dom), several times I was told by the person that was playing as Marcus that he could not see me bleeding out even though I kept telling him to revive me. He said it looked like Dom was walking in slow motion. On several occations I noticed Marcus was not walking, but rather float-walking above the ground. Lot's of glitches still, but I'm sure EPIC is mounting a list to fix for the first patch

I got the seriousness from the title of the thread, "...Really? I mean, are you serious?" seems a little serious to me. I am just saying, no worries brotha

Yeah the AI is worthless in this one. In fact, the only part of playing coop on insane that was difficult was when you had to split up and dipshit tai or dipshit carmine would run into an ambush and stand there absorbing bullets.

::environment-based spoilers?::

I spent the entire boat chapter watching my friend's character bob up and down through the surface of the boat, as if he were standing on the water instead. He would alternate between being waist deep in metal and being a few feet in the air.

In the room where you cut the arteries and a huge gap fills with blood, it rose a few feet per second for maybe two seconds, then suddenly filled up instantaneously.

The locus AI isn't smart enough to realize running into razor hail is a bad thing, and when I finished that section and got to the part where the hail cuts out, it flickered in and out of existence several times before stopping.

When I was riding Betty in Act 1 Marcus shouted out that we would have to kill "it" just like the worm: from the inside...confusing the shit out of me because I hadn't ever been to Act 3 before at that point.

I got a sniper headshot on a helmed drone in Act 2...his head exploded and he fell down, but his helm stayed in midair. Similarly, I later chainsawed a drone, but instead of writhing and exploding he just went into his default standing position and just stood there like a hologram.

In Act 2 I somehow got stuck next to a burning building and had to wait for it to collapse a few minutes later before I could move again.

Needless to say, things have been amusing. The random glitches coupled with the laughable one liners the characters throw out have been giving my friend and I all sorts of fun stuff to talk about while we're fighting the locust horde

I've encounteed a few glitches in MP but none in campaign so far.

Encountered a glitch mentioned previously in this thread:

I was playing online with some friends at the weekend and in a few matches one of them would get downed and start bleeding out but appear to be fine to everyone else.

Not found a way to stop this one when it happens.

Encountered a new one:

A few of us got caught out by a glitch that when you spawn, keeps your weapon aimed and unable to fire/melee. Only way to stop this is to let yourself get shot once or twice.

Your character should return to normal and then you can get to cover quickly before you get killed.

I think that may have happened to me on the last act of the game. Dom disappeared and I couldn't find him anywhere. I gave up looking after 5 seconds.

Someone needs to post the picture of the serious cat here. lol

While me and a couple of friends were playing horde my brother had 3 dead wrethces permantly attached to his feet for 6 rounds. Quality.

And in campaign *spoiler dont read this!!!!* during the attack on the boat by the shark thing he was hit by one of its tentacles, it didnt kill him but instead attached him to it, he was flailing 30ft in the air on the end of the tentacle for about 20 seconds before being pulled down into the water screaming help me.

I havent laughed that hard in a while.

Yeah I've had Dom freeze up a couple of times. I had to protect him from those freaks in the test chambers as he was just standing there getting mauled.

Also he's blocked my way a few times.

I've had a couple similar to this.

Playing hoarde on avalanche with a few friends, we killed a bloudmount whilst he still had a guy on top. Said guy then proceeded to ride around the map on an invisible bloudmount, before being able to teleport to different locations.

Also in a similar scenario the bouldmount jockey ended up about 15 feet in the air after we killed his bloudmount. (again avalanche)

Had my friend crawling around in the air after being downed so unable to help him up.

I have only had a few glitches but it's mainly simple stuff like Dom not moving and him sliding towards me then back to his original spot for a long time while I was downed.

Playing horde we had the final locust stuck in mid air teleporting around the map.

Luckily getting into a wingman game with my friend and on the same team we went to pick up the mortar at the bottom of pavillion. He got stuck unable to move or shoottrying to pick it up.

Here's a few.

Accidently crab walking off the Derrik only to fall to my death.
Dom getting stuck to a reaver and it flying off killing him.
On the last level while inside the elevator I fell OUT of the elevator as Dom pushed me out.
I have seen so many more, it's funny. I like it.

I haven't had any of these issues, the only thing that was weird, is that when I was playing online co-op, I would take like 3-5 seconds to start after we would both die, and sometimes I would come into the game and be down. Other than that, I haven't had any real problems, other than a couple of double climbs over cover.

I had something similar happen in the Chapter that you have to move through the train cars and miss the razorhail. I get out of the last car and I turn around to find Dom and didn't see him. Hit the Tac/Com and there he is STANDING ON TOP OF THE LAST TRAIN CAR?!?

Not that big of a problem, at the next checkpoint they are suddenly behind you.

Maybe I was just lucky but I got GoW1 at launch and the only glitch I ran into was when I rolled sideways in the water in Canals and somehow fell out of the level.

The worst glitch I've experienced was a few times when I'm in cover and a partner AI wants to occupy the same spot, it keeps trying to get down anyways and ends up looking like he's boning Marcus' head.

Only other one was a good one. The battle was over (the music cue had played) and I was gonna go into the next section but I noticed a Locust I had missed just standing in the corner waiting to get shot. Even when I did shoot him, he never moved.
