Death while moving
Basically a bug that happens when you die while moving.

I went to go fishing and get water, and me being me, I live in a dangerous area, so I get mauled a few times. Thing is, when I get caught while walking or running away, instead of it doing the normal death animation, my character just keeps running the direction he was going until I "pass out". When I do finally ghostify, my guy is standing like a statue in the frame before I turned into a ghost.

Not sure if it's just me, but reproduction should be simple. Just lose all your health while walking or running.

Not exactly a game breaking bug, but one to look at lol.

confirmed ... I realized this several times, too ... looks funny that I am still running while the bear is walking away whistling "dont worry be happy" :D

Wonder if that's tied into the LAG animals were causing on the test server, my ping there is normally 52, but as you moved from one sub zone to another my ping would bounce up and down like a yo-yo, the game was trying to parse the mobs in each sub zone as you moved through them, but it was getting bogged down, and creating lots of LAG, and it was pretty much unplayable if you got too close to a tribe with a zoo.

One of the outcomes of this was that it took the game a while to realise you were dead, the worse the LAG the longer it took, on one really bad run I managed to sprint two full zones into the mist before I got the respawn screen.

I'll try to reproduce this. If it is related to lag, I won't be able to reproduce this on my local server but should be able to on the Test Server.

If any of you can reproduce this repeatedly, please post the exact steps or situation.

Thanks, Diomedes :)

Xsyon, yesterday (uhm, German yesterday) I got normal death animation again, but I will keep an eye on it if it happens again.

Happened to me twice yesterday on two different characters on the war server. I was in zone 982 very close to the small scav pile top middle of the zone. One was a bear and the other a coyote might have been a bear sorry I can't recall the second one. Both times I was running away and died mid-stride. My ghost kept running but my left behind body was frozen mid-stride.
