Silly Horizon Forbidden West Bug shows enemy moving away from Aloy

A clip from Horizon Forbidden West shows a dangerous fight with a Tenakth warrior turning into a sham when an insect sends its corpse skating across the map.

The latest open world adventure from Guerilla Games, Forbidden West Horizon, sees Aloy travel to the far reaches of the post-apocalyptic United States on her journey to prevent a climate catastrophe. In her search for the rogue AI that threatens Earth, she comes across many deadly forces that stand in her way. From killer machines to futuristic cultists, the world of Forbidden West Horizon is full of dangers.

One such danger that Aloy may encounter is the ruthless bandits that terrorize the peaceful tribes of the Forbidden West. Whipped in a frenzy by Forbidden West Horizon Regalla, Tenakth rebel leader, these fearsome warriors will attack Aloy at first sight and kill her if she is not prepared. Despite the threat they pose, a Forbidden West Horizon clip shows how video game glitches can turn the dangerous into the absurd.

Posted by user xLumos on the r/horizon subreddit, the video shows Aloy killing one of the Forbidden West Horizon Tenakth Warriors and seeing some unexpected behavior. After Tenakth takes a few hits on Aloy, xLumos starts blasting him with one of the game’s heavy weapons. Once the Tenakth’s health bar is depleted, it begins its death animation, ready to drop dead. Instead of falling to the ground, however, he begins to slowly slide along the ground into a battle-ready position. As xLumos looks confused, they take the time to loot his animated corpse, following him on his journey.

Looking like a tribal skater, it’s evident the body is still collision-enabled as Aloy walks in front of him and he slides smoothly past her. xLumos captions the clip “legend says he’s still gliding”, building myths around this one Tenakth warrior and his own spiritual journey – a tale possibly more interesting than Aloy’s own adventure in Forbidden West Horizon.

This is not the first time that absurd glitches have appeared in the series, as gamers of Horizon Zero DawnThe PC port of would sometimes get stuck playing the main game as Aloy’s childhood self since the prologue. Guerrilla Games also worked to fix the issues Forbidden West Horizon players treated in the months following its release, although it appears the game is still not in a fully polished state.

Aiming first for a 2021 release, Sony has pushed back the release date of Forbidden West Horizon to February 2022 to avoid the crisis when the development was completed. However, as user dontplaydead27 suggests in the xLumos clip comments, they “feel like this game could have been baked just a few months longer” to avoid these issues. No game will ever be fully polished and there will always be bugs to be squashed, but perhaps with a more consumer and developer wellness approach to game design, fewer of these weird, immersion-breaking bugs will show up.

Forbidden West Horizon is currently available for PS4 and PS5.
