The Meatball Glitch

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So me and the boys from time to time will just be chillin and doing our own thing when one of us suddenly becomes the new upcoming marvel supehero: Meatball Guy.

For those who don't know what the meatball glitch is its literally where your character gets fucking imploded and crushed into a floating ball animation to other players. It is all normal on your screen but to some others your character just folds up into a sphere with guns and shit sticking out.

Anyone have any ideas what causes this? I believe it may involve shuffling through injury animations

Yeah thats a known bug and has been happening since 1.0 I believe. Nothing to do about it but relog if you realise you are meatballed. Id say if you dont relog after being made aware of it, your exploiting a glitch and should be punished.

There are ways to trigger it but I am not sharing that info here.

Seen this done purposely on some public servers. Seems they could ball up and undo it at will. Its funny as shit for sure seeing a ball floating about and shooting.

I imagine David Attenborough talking about this phenomena along the lines of "When threatened with RP during the dangerous night, the roleplayer attempts to curl up into a ball to avoid interaction."

Anything that resets your animation /can/ fix it. Jumping, using the scrollwheel to raise your hands, do the arm-leg waving, etc.

 

Otherwise just relog.

Is this an example of what you're talking about? I've not seen it happen for a good 2 months. Best thing you can do when this happens to you is to try and relog.

This made me chuckle, was thinking the exact same thing before I even read it.

 

Never personally come across the meatball men but have had many friends who have, wasn't aware it was still a thing though!

No it’s very much s thing, you gotta press;

 

up down up down left right A B start 

 

But no memes there is certain combination you need to do to ball yourself that I don’t want to share but it seems as almost if it’s something to do with the animation scripts on a player model but I’m no dev
