Bizarre Forza Horizon 4 glitch is making cars bounce uncontrollably

Forza Horizon 4 continues to dominate the open-world racing genre, but it’s not without its issues. One Redditor has found a glitch in the game that appears to turn the Clio Williams into a pogo stick during a cinematic cutscene.

The world of Forza Horizon 4 remains popular, out-ranking any other Forza title for gameplay numbers by a considerable margin.

In spite of this, bugs, glitches, and hilarious moments pop up frequently online, with anything from random ‘sinkholes’ in the game to glitches that turn cars into spaceships.

One thing you may notice about these glitches is that they mostly happen during gameplay, with players in control of their vehicles. Cinematic cutscene glitches are rare since these animations are pre-determined by the game devs, but they are not impossible.

The glitch in question, posted to R/Forza by Reddit user mecurt78, shows the cutscene before one of the ‘Upgrade Heroes’ missions.

In these missions, the player drives a Renault Clio Williams to ‘collect’ a car, which is brought back to the workshop for upgrading and customization.

Unusually, however, it is during the cinematic scene that the glitch hits. While the voiceover is still playing correctly, the car behaves in a very… unique way during the scene.

The Clio Williams appears to drive through a wall, and then proceed to bounce up-and-down as if it is on a trampoline.

As if that wasn’t enough, the car then sits perfectly upright on its rear bumper, before slowly toppling over the wall in a see-saw like motion.

From what we can see, this is an isolated incident of a glitch in the cutscene. Ironically, the overdub says “Nervous, me? I’m not nervous” as the car continues to glitch.

We’d certainly be nervous if our car was toppling over a stone wall!

Weird Forza Horizon 4 bug is giving players easy wins

Forza Horizon 4 is the game that keeps on delivering, but unfortunately, it’s not always good news. One player in particular seems to have found an unusual bug that is ‘eating’ AI players.

The open-world game of Forza Horizon 4 lets players live out their automotive dreams like never before. Between the streets of a virtual Edinburgh to a recreation of quaint English villages, players are able to tear around a miniaturized version of England in almost any car they can think of.

Unfortunately, sometimes the open-world game that players love fights back, causing unusual bugs and glitches. Thankfully, most are harmless, such as this unusual (and frankly hilarious) AI bug that was posted to Reddit.

The bug seems to occur when passing through a specific checkpoint during the race.

The bug itself appears to occur part-way through one of the biggest races in the game – the aptly-named ‘Goliath.’

Posting to the r/ForzaHorizon subreddit, player Jurassic_Gaming57 shows the bug in full effect, thanks to a screen-captured video.

On lap 3/10, the AI cars in front of the player pass through a checkpoint, then appear to simply vanish into thin air.

While this is weird enough on its own, what happens next is the strangest part of the bug.

In an unusual ‘black hole’ style situation, the cars that vanished then re-appear behind the player, seemingly caught in an endless cycle of looping back-and-forth through the checkpoint.

Has anyone else found this issue on the Goliath? The AI just keep looping through the checkpoint. from r/ForzaHorizon

To make matters worse, it would seem this is not an isolated incident. According to Redditors in the comment section, other players have experienced similar situations, though this one does appear to be a strange example:

“Never seen it on a simple circuit like this. I’ve played some races with a lot of criss-cross paths that totally freak out the AI so there are only 1 or 2 on the lead lap.”

It turns out that the issue may be caused by the AI getting confused by the number of vehicle ‘paths’ on the circuit. Whatever it is, it’s certainly an easy win for this player.
