Highlight of the Week: He's not a buffalo soldier

Anyone that's had a go on the Battlefield 3 beta will probably have noticed that it's full of bugs and glitches. This is because it’s a beta. Not a demo. Either way, the beta is providing players with much unintended amusement thanks to the frequent algorithmic flip-outs and seizures. Like Mr Stretchy Giraffe Neck Soldier Man:

Have you encountered Mr Stretchy Giraffe Neck Soldier Man in the Battlefield 3 beta? If so, please tell us all about him and any adventures that you may have had together.

Thanks to FifaScythi for the original source vid.

    He's really sticking his neck out for the sake of the country.

    Am I the only one who thinks he looks like a fish?

    Wow! What realistic animations Frostbite 2 can make!

    I love the Highlight of the Week theme song...I think it will be my next new ringtone.

    I've seen this everywhere....

    That was absolutely freakin' hilarious. Especially because, as db1331 mentioned, it looks like his ass is firing the gun. I can just imagine his CO waltzing up and saying something like "that's quite a talent young man" before giving him a mercy killing.

    The ghost soldier that only can be seen and killed if you cremate his corpse(hitbox stays with dead body). The spinning flying corpses. The MAV that only can be destroyed by enemies(c4 planting gone haywire) Falling through the ground. Shooting through rocks. Texture glith on caspian border(seeing roads as if they were close when its grass plains). Any conception of this beeing demo is long gone for anyone playing it *3*

    That's because it's a beta and not a demo.

    I haven't met Mr Stretchy Giraffe Neck Soldier Guy, but I met his brother Mr Fly in the Sky Soldier Guy.

    Haha It looks like EA is demoing their new necromorph design in Battlefield 3! Look for this creature in Dead Space 3!
  • db1331 - October 7, 2011 5:51 a.m.

    Yup. He killed me just last night. The best part is that he looks like he is shooting from his ass. DICE just announced they are bringing back the 64 player Caspian Border conquest maps to the beta this afternoon. I can't freaking wait. There goes my whole weekend.

    Stresstesting them :( as in massive lags disconnects etc.
  • TheZigMan - October 7, 2011 9:44 a.m.

    they were stress testing operation Metro as well. I only ever had like two server drops, and ive put at least 8 hours into the beta. And btw, CASPIAN BORDER IS ONLY ON PC!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh crap, necromorphs can use guns now?
  • ParanoidAndroid64 - October 7, 2011 4:39 a.m.

    I didn't meet him in the beta, but Mr Stretchy Giraffe Neck Soldier Man have been on all sorts of adventures. He told me not to tell my parents about them.
  • ParanoidAndroid64 - October 7, 2011 4:43 a.m.

    *me and. I wish there was an edit option.
  • gazdog9 - October 7, 2011 4:35 a.m.
