While the latest patch for Summit Legends fixed several bugs and issues that the game had, it looks like it introduced a new one. Players have reported several issues with Horizon’s tactical ability, Gravity Lift, and how using it seems to make the game…well, a little creepy.
It’s hard to explain exactly what’s going on with the Gravity Lift and better to see it in action.
When using Gravity Lift, players’ cameras will momentarily appear to flip or move incredibly fast. It’s disorienting if you’re playing Horizon, to say the least. And it will also put Horizon players at a disadvantage during fights. Gravity Lift is a powerful tool not only for scaling vertical height, but also for strafe back and forth and moving quickly while healing, which is why players will use it so often in the middle of a fight. If you completely lose sight of your enemy and teammates momentarily, then return to where you were with little context on how you got there, you might end up starting to shoot one of your own teammates, like Spacestation. Games pro Joseph “Frexs” Sanchez does in the clip above.
Some players have done a bit more testing on it, like Summit content creator Mokeysniper, who noted that the August 22 patch seemed to break Horizon’s Q ability. And the higher a player’s ping, the more drastic the camera cut can be since Mokey appears to be thrown halfway through Storm Point and back at some point.
Mokey also notes that this looks like a visual glitch that only appears on the Horizon player screen, and the character doesn’t physically teleport around the map or seem to move strangely towards other players. Still, it’s an annoying, borderline bug for Horizon players who want to take the game seriously.
As the sixth most chosen legend in the game right now, Horizon has once again returned to the biggest Summit meta for professional and casual gamers. However, this bug could put a damper on that popularity and players might want to hold off on playing it until the issue is fixed.
