The Bad Guys In Sleeping Dogs Aren’t Very Good At Fleeing

Sometimes, in Sleeping Dogs, you kick so many arses that your still-standing foes give up and run away. This usually happens when you’re clearing out the “drug bust” zones, which begin with a fight and end with some sweet, delicious camera-hacking.

For some reason, after you’ve kicked all the asses, the fleeing guys kinda… lose their minds a little bit. They hop onto the bikes and cars they arrived in and sort of drunkenly careen around all willy-nilly before eventually swerving out onto the street. It’s a funny bit of fiction-breaking bugginess. A particularly good one has been captured here by GameFails.

Don’t tell anyone, but when the punks run away, I like to chase ’em down anyway and throw them into a dumpster or something.


  • To be fair, they’ve been in a fist fight and may well be suffering severe head trauma. You shouldn’t be watching, you should be calling for emergency services!

  • Those guys are more cunning than they look. You’ll often draw in more than the requisite amount so once you’ve beat down 8 or 10 or 20 or whatever guys the rest flee, sometimes stealing my car in the process!

    • I had one guy steal my car my and push me 2 blocks away whilst I was in the hacking mini-game (the camera stayed on the switchbox whilst Wei was pushed further from my sight). Thankfully it didn’t interrupt the hacking, but when I finished, I was kinda lost for a second. 🙂

  • I just did a case where I saved a bunch of immigrants. They were saying their thank yous and then all turned and fell into the ocean never to be seen again. :S

  • Whats eve more fail is the false environment reflection map on the vehicle.

    A stop sign on the corner of an intersection with grass.

  • Oh look you found a bug, clearly this is worth it’s own page on Kotaku. Slow news day I take it? Can’t find anything better to post than a small bug in an otherwise impressive game?

    • I totally agree, can you send me a link to your video game website so that I can read news, reviews and articles there, clearly your site takes a serious, hard edge approach to the entertainment in video games as opposed to the fun they have at Kotaku
