We've probably all come across something similar before - when your on-screen character moves erratically despite which buttons you may be pressing. Usually just a latency issue, there are instances in survival games like DayZ were hackers are able to completely takeover your avatar. And if this Reddit user's story checks out, the famous glitch may start to reappear in everyone's favourite Battle Royale homage.
Posting under the crude name of CervixSlam, footage has been captured allegedly showing an in-game PUBG character moving around after grabbing some loot at the start of the match.
While that may sound like a rather normal thing to witness, the poster assures us that his friend on the receiving end of the movement isn't touching a single button; whether that be on a keyboard or a controller. The stream in question seems to show two onlookers playing the game normally before noticing the kill-feed mention their off-screen friend killing themselves with a grenade.
With a post title that talks as if the original poster is the victim of the 'issue' before switching to another perspective that fails to really back up the idea that character control has swapped in a two-way manner, it's difficult to really understand the perspective of the reported problem. And with a video that doesn't show the victim at all, it's a story that's a little hard to buy.
Toward the end of the post, the original author then decides its worth pointing out the event took place "a few months ago", which begs the question - why report it now? Again, this seems a little hard to believe given the evidence, but comments back up how it could happen, and a history of a similar bugs in similar games. Could this become more wide-spread? That's a worrisome bug to have in a game that's trying to venture into serious esport territory.
