During the course of the Halo Infinite, some players have spotted gods bot mischievous who performed in the famous gesture of teabag. Well, according to the words of the developers of 343 Industries, in reality it was just a bug.
For the uninitiated, the teabag is a gesture that players perform by rapidly lowering and raising their character above the body of the unfortunate person on duty. It is a goliardic way to making fun of the defeated opponent who over the years has depopulated in virtually every multiplayer title. However, seeing it run by a bot is quite funny and many believed it was a gimmick by the developers to give some character to the artificial players of the Halo Infinite beta.
In an interview with Kotaku colleagues, 343 Industries explained that the execution of the gesture is actually only one technical error. “We haven’t explicitly programmed bots to tell them to teabag or taunt a player. Bots are supposed to be welcoming and fun to players of all levels and a feature designed to provoke them would be counterintuitive,” explains a studio rep. .
The gesture of the teabag of the bots of the beta of Halo Infinite, according to the words of 343 Industries, is given by a collision problem which manifested itself when one of them tried to jump or climb near edges and stairs. At this point the bot entered a seemingly infinite animation of climbing / landing attempts, which resembles the gesture of the teabag.
Staying on the subject, in recent days the developers have promised that the performance of the PC version of Halo Infinite will improve significantly.
