I can't recall if I already posted this here because it happened prior to the forum migration, but I'd like to hear some thoughts on something I witnessed.

I was playing and all of a sudden I heard the sound of the Animus Hack as if it was being used (it wasn't an Animus hack though), I then got killed by an invisible man and heard laughing afterwards. Now this could have been lag, but I saw it happen to other players in the same session as well (the getting killed by an invisible player part).

Was this lag? Or something else?

Probably lag.

I've seen players killed by invisible people, and it happened to me one time. I'm pretty sure I laughed when I saw it :)
I've also seen it in a gameplay video on youtube (can't remember which one now) but yeah I always put it down to pretty severe lag.

ACB had an invisible player glitch as well. It would only, or almost only, happen in laggy games.

Squiiddish used to have a video (not sure if he still does) where he showed it off from the perspective of the invisible person's teammate in Alliance, and there was a random NPC who nobody could do anything to that had his teammate's name over it, while the ACTUAL player was running around killing and being invisible and stuff. I think it was with SHENMUE36.

I used to get stunned by invisible players all the time in ACB. I think its only happend to me like two times on ACR. Very annoying. Could people do this on purpose or is it just a random event that happens?

Lol, none of these bugs will EVER come even close to beating my bug...

Well lets just say I fell through the game.
