Swimming In Cyberpunk 2077 Looks Like Something From Your Nightmares

The list of glitches, bugs, and animation mistakes that can be found in Cyberpunk 2077 are well documented, yet somehow, more and more keep popping up. In this case, if you decide to go swimming in Cyberpunk 2077, you might want to sleep with a light on, because the image of V’s silhouette in the water will give you nightmares.

With how big and expansive Night City is, there isn’t a lot of reason to go swimming. Unless, of course, you are the average gamer and—any time you see water—you wonder if you can actually swim in the game. As it turns out, you can swim in Cyberpunk 2077. You just don’t want to look at your shadow while you’re doing it.

Redditor u/Cobah posted a video of themselves swimming in the ocean, and let’s just say that if this is the way the V swims, it would be terrifying to watch. If you don’t move around, things seem to be alright. The shadow that you cast resembles a human figure. The moment Cobah moved, though, the shadow’s legs look like they’ve broken at the knees, and the arms flail around without any rhyme or reason.

Several people have mentioned that they’ve seen similar glitches in the shadow animation while spending time in the badlands. For one reason or another, it appears as though your character and your shadow are separate entities with separate animations that barely coincide with one another.

Strangely enough, the shadow animations look familiar—reminiscent of games from the early 2000s when characters would die, but their bodies didn’t fully get the memo. This left the dead to glitch and flop around like a puppet being controlled by someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing. Then, as now, it’s an amusing sight to see when a character is flopping around, bearing no relation to reality or logic.

One is left to wonder, though, why the shadows in Cyberpunk 2077 have separate animations from your character. Whatever the reasoning, we assume that this animation will be patched at some point, so we encourage you to entertain yourself with it while you can.
