Overwatch fans have discovered a strange bug on Château Guillard, where an area of the map causes players to get stuck before spitting them out.

Like any other game, Overwatch has seen its fair share of bugs and usually, they are fairly minor. However, one glitch has been discovered on the Deathmatch map Château Guillard which has left players scratching their heads.

A certain spot on the map seems to cause players to get stuck, before being launched out of the area after a few seconds.

Reddit user MaximillianValentine shared his findings with a short video clip displaying the bug, as he walked into a bush on the outside portion of the map next to the lake and got stuck. After a few seconds of attempting to move, he was suddenly spat out of the area.

Afterward another player ran in and faced a similar fate. It’s unknown what causes the bug, although one user claimed that there are a few similar spots around the map, causing it to be a surprisingly sticky death trap.

The map itself is not new as it was released in 2018 and this glitch is just surfacing, so it is possible that a recent change caused some issues.

However, this isn’t the most impactful bug, but it can be annoying as it will cause you to get stuck and become a sitting duck. If you’re thinking of doing some Deathmatch on Château Guillard, you’ll need to avoid the shrubbery and perhaps even some of the more tight looking corners.

Blizzard have not yet commented on the glitch, although, considering how annoying this can be, fans will be hoping they will fix it sooner rather than later.
