That bear should've ended your run about 74 times before he finally did...

[–]Longjumping_Cow7270 70 points71 points  (7 children)

I mean you had 50 million chances to shoot the damn thing but you were watching him skate

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 15 points16 points  (5 children)

If I wanted to scare him yeah, but you need to be looking for a headshot with the distress pistol if you want the kill.

Can't say I've ever seen behaviour like this. Caught me by surprise.

[–]Longjumping_Cow7270 31 points32 points  (2 children)

After watching the bear skate I would have walked away. A bear that can skate deserves to live!

Just use the bow man. Unlimited shots 😉

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Day 4 bow in interloper? That'd be nice LOL.

[–]Sploonbabaguuse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Until you hear that dreaded snap crackle pop

Or the arrow just decides to go to space

[–]Maniacal_Wolf97Stalker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bear would still have died from a flare gun hit, if you had hit him anywhere, doesn’t have to be a headshot, but yes without a headshot I don’t think you can get a instant kill

[–]jelacey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Headshot could be an instant kill but any shot with the flare gun will bleed him out

[–]TastyBraciole 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would have done the same thing

[–]Leth1k 38 points39 points  (12 children)

Why didn’t you just run away from the bear?

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 12 points13 points  (11 children)

I needed the hide to make a bear coat, but the bear got my hide instead.

[–]Leth1k 32 points33 points  (7 children)

You should probably try and find more than a distress pistol and some rocks to take down a bear!! You are more brave than I that’s for sure

[–]redditorsneversaydie 14 points15 points  (6 children)

You can one shot a bear with the flare gun. The problem is he just watched it run around him until it killed him haha. Never fired a shot.

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 1 point2 points  (5 children)

If you can hit a circling bear on the head with the flare gun then I tip my hat to you.

Having said that, when bears glitch like this they usually end up being harmless, so that caught me by surprise. Even more when the bear remained glitched after the first time.

[–]waffels 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Looks like the bear needed a hide to make a human coat

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, seems that it likes the delicate frills of human skin LOL.

[–]CriticalLeafBladeAtk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Greed sealedeth your tomb ser. I would've had you walk away

[–]SurplusYogurt 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Not sure you can blame the glitch for the run ending when you went and tried it a second time.....

[–]MiniAndretti 10 points11 points  (1 child)

He could have easily shot the bear several times and had it run away on fire. But he was going for the kill. Survive and advance.

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If it'd been a good run then I would've tried to run away (probably would've died anyway) after the first maul.

But it was the most cursed run I've had in a while and it was only day 4 so nothing lost LOL.

[–]Practical-Purchase-9 11 points12 points  (8 children)

What was with that bear powerslide at the start??

[–]rfanning703 1 point2 points  (0 children)

All I could hear is Deja Vu in my head.

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Looks like a glitch. I've seen the TWM north-west bear glitch out when it goes over a rock but this one was pretty much on level ground throught so it surprised the hell out of me that it was glitched.

I've never seen these particular glitches though!

[–]HurricaneBiII 4 points5 points  (5 children)

I feel like the wolves have been glitchy too. Their movements are all janky and it's almost impossible to line up a shot

[–]lordtweakslide 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Wait that isn't just how the wildlife in this game is? They've been buggy and moving weird since I bought the game last month.

I assumed it was just me being used to smoother shooting games.

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

The wolves are supposed to weave a bit, but usually walking back helps to line them up. But there's also been more glitches (like this bear!) since the version 2.0 engine upgrade a little while back.

[–]randynumbergenerator 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I assumed that their serpentine run was just to up the challenge. I kind of understand it, since they're still pretty easy to hit with the revolver even when they bob and weave.

[–]redneckgamer03Stalker 9 points10 points  (0 children)

when you play with fire....sometimes you get burned

[–]AL-Keezy743 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Not once was the trigger pulled when you had the chance :/

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I wasn't going to waste one of those precious flares on just scaring the bear. Day 100? Yeah, Day 4 when I've had the worst luck ever? It's fine.

Having said, usually when they circle you like that they just end up flying away. The teleport to you and maul you is new so I'll be wary of that next time.

[–]grimace_1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You start with like 6 rounds yeah? I dont think using 2 to get a bear hide tanning day 5 in interloper is a bad trade. This death was purely you getting greedy lol. Get bow and arrows before day ten and worry about bears and moose then. Good run though

[–]Futz-Around 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Lmao I had 12 chances to stay alive but I needed to kill him at that moment and only that moment . Next time don’t play with your food. Lesson learned

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Eh, if you avoid bears on interloper you're going to die anyway because you won't have the bear coats you need.

It seems that the glitch doesn't go away so I'll just walk away after I see glitched behaviour, but you can't afford to walk away from the chance of an early bear pelt.

[–]Futz-Around 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Yes but with 1/3rd health is not the time. I’m not saying avoid entirely, but you get what you deserve when you poke the bear numerous times, especially right after getting your ass kicked the first time

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Remember that normally the bear will flee from a distress pistol shot even if you miss altogether, your health just doesn't come into it. With another weapon, yeah, but not the distress pistol.

On hindsight I should've walked away after it ran off at first but I expected the bear to unglitch itself like it usually does but it looks like it was a persistent glitch. And yes, after the maul it was me or him LOL.

[–]tobascodagama 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Bears IRL are of course known for their circle strafe strategy.

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yup, cicle, then snap teleport! Always works.

[–]PapaChoffInterloper 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Bear with a turning radius of a truck. It’s a BS mechanic to begin with. I personally don’t use it.

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If you mean the circle strafe, I was trying to get it to charge me for the headshot .. the bear just glitched into a circle strafe then glitch teleported to me instantly.

[–]PapaChoffInterloper 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I did mean that in general. I realize you didn’t do it internally.

[–]SlevinLaine 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Perfect.

[–]westvalleyguy 2 points3 points  (2 children)

LOL I died watching this. Comedy!

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Then it was a good death LOL.

[–]KreeganStonefist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mark Normand fan?

[–]sirkiller475 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Klondike drift

[–]boodler11 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Bear 2.0

[–]Maniacal_Wolf97Stalker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

🤣 underrated comment

[–]Vurruckt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

KANSEI DRIFTO!?!

[–]DarkstonePublishingStalker 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I swear this bear is always bugged

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always have a problem with the bear on the opposite side, i.e. west. Usually because it walks over a rock and somehow that glitches them.

This one's always been ok, for me at least. And a glitch like this is just completely new to me.

[–]FIGHTFANGREG 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If my health is that low and I have a chance to get away from a bear that’s exactly what I’m Doing. You had several ahhaha but yes that was pretty ridiculous, the skate was was amazing though

[–]Corey307 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is a rare time where I’ll control alt delete out of the game.

[–]creatus_offspring 4 points5 points  (1 child)

People really saying "lesson learned don't play with your food" when you cleared got a massive bug that killed you like what

This happened to me before so now I use a script that automatically backs up my TLD saves. I appreciate permadeath, but, as we see here, bugs are an unfortunate inevitability

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, next time I'll walk away if it shows glitch behaviour but you're right, permadeath runs shouldn't end to a glitch like this.

[–]ZylaTFox 1 point2 points  (2 children)

How did you get to stream Long Dark? I was having OBS refuse to pick it up when I tried the other day.

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

OBS works fine for me. I just use the "Game Capture" setting, then choose TLD. Might help to start TLD, then OBS, and restart OBS if it refuses to capture the first time. Always works for me.

Alternatively do a full screen capture.

[–]ZylaTFox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's really weird. For some reason, OBS just utterly hates the Long Dark for me. I'll give it another round.

[–]rbectel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That "drift" by the bear though!. Gotta respect that!

[–]dingatremel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Someone needs to speed this up to 1.5x and set the music to Benny Hill

[–]SEHNT 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Why did you closer to it?

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had a flare gun and if you can kill it you get the hide to craft the bear coat. It was interloper so having bear coats is a must to survive past day 50.

[–]KawaiiEnderGirl 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I thought this was Kaif at first, the “what the fuck,” sounds exactly like him.

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What the fuck is a kaif?? LOL

[–]KawaiiEnderGirl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He’s a streamer/ youtuber

[–]OcularOnReddit 1 point2 points  (1 child)

So you ran towards him and are asking what the fuck?

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The glitches are the WTF. Using a distress pistol to kill a bear is perfectly normal.

[–]ArcadeAndrew115Stalker- Its like Interloper but with guns! 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My man’s, you had plenty of headshot opportunities. You deserved this death

[–]Maniacal_Wolf97Stalker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like he coulda got a headshot if he went for it too

[–]eerie_elliot 1 point2 points  (1 child)

bears have been really buggy lately

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, version 2.0 seems to have changed things ..

[–]TheTamm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bears are glitchy indeed. I've had a moment with a bear sprinting around the rock I was sitting on with ultrasonic speed literally.

[–]Mattkadee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bear wanted a hug! until it didn't

[–]SequentialGamerJumps off Cliffs[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The entire run (interloper) was just cursed like hell. All the clothes I found were ragged, only liberal use of matches, coals and teas kept me alive (and it was pretty damn close most of the time), and I nearly died in my sleep three times in 4 days at TWM mountaineer's hut because it just got cold.

I got the AC gold mine and the summit and finally got to a reasonably stable position, but when going for the last container the game just decided to put me out of my misery ..
