Witness The True Horror Of Far Cry 4's Badgers

You may not know this, but badgers are the worst. Combine that fundamental truth, with the randomness of Far Cry 4, and what you get is pure chaos.

Watch as a scene in Far Cry 4 starts breaking down completely, complete with rhinos, characters fusing into trucks, and an endless supply of rocks. This is all thanks to many pesky badgers that terrorize players, NPCs and enemies alike. AAVG gets it right when they call this "Bath Salts Wildlife Simulator."

This is one of many amusing glitches I've found floating around for Far Cry 4. Let's take a look at some others, shall we?

First, let's keep talking about badgers. Yannick found that sometimes, badgers don't quite die the way they're supposed to:

That's because they're demon animals sent up to the surface to destroy everything. Hellspawn don't follow the laws of physics. This also explains why badgers are sponges that are so difficult to kill in Far Cry 4.

Really, it's amazing to see the ways in which the wildlife in Far Cry 4 can go haywire, as this video by 365Gaming shows:

It's a total "my planet needs me" moment too, heh:

Hilarious things can happen to the characters too, of course. Observe what happens when DimpledEagerHerald throws a knife at an enemy:

Other players, like Trigentify, have found this too:

Here's another fun one, found by our very own Yannick. Chris went in and added some appropriate music, because we do god's work here at Kotaku dot com:

Other glitches, like this one from BreckR, are just sort of inexplicable:

Apparently there's a glitch that lets you fuse with other characters, resulting in this driving monstrosity found by Platform32:

Then we have the villager who feels no pain, found by EffluentCircus:

Abdulsalam Alanazi finds that some characters don't even seem to mind when they have knives lodged in their faces:

None of these seem game-breaking, they're just funny to watch — so you can't really get miffed that they exist. I'm curious, though: have you encountered any good glitches in Far Cry 4? Let us know in the comments.


    Wait, so this game is buggy too? :(

      Been playing it past two nights. Only issue was with my keyboard button sticking. There was a 3GB day one patch that was out before I started playing but thats all Ive had to download since I installed.

      Really impressed with FC4 probably gonna be my game of the year.

        I was impressed until realising co-op is effectively useless. You keep money and xp when you enter someone's world but activities, outposts, towers and unlocks don't carry back into your own. I really like the game but I'm not doing everything twice so what exactly is the point of co-op apart from a bit of a lark...why can't we do hostage missions together to unlock guns or at least progress something?
        Oh - and the eagles, honey badgers I can cope with but eagles? Who at Ubisoft thought they were a good idea. Seems every 60secs an eagle is swooping...
        Apart from that though - you are right, the game is really good :)

      I've had the sound drop out once and had to restart. I also was able to abseil down a cliff and into the ground once which also forced a reload. Other than that it's all been minor stuff I've seen and not that often either considering it's day 2.

    What is it with flying sharks these days? First GTA V now Far Cry 4, are they homages to Sharknado?

      "Homage to Sharknado" that's the name of my next indie band!

      "Fromage to Sharknado" will be the French version...

    Goddamn it Kotaku. I was all ready to ignore this game (for now) and get Dragon Age Inquisition, but looking at it, seeing that Rhino destroy everything, and remembering how rad the 3rd game was has got me all confused.

    Launched a guy into the air with an arrow at one point.

    Kotaku, come on, this is totally unfair. These are clearly features, not "glitches", gosh. I mean everyone expects games to have these features, everyone else is doing it.

    Damn I keep getting tempted through videos like this. Stop reminding me how good it looks.

    You see. Man and Animal can live together in harmony.
