Character anchor in air bug abuse [repro]

  • windowed mode in-game
  • jump
  • at the top of your jump, right click and hold the top of the window (the bar with minimize, maximize, and close)
  • it anchors your torso and your limbs dangle there from other people’s perspectives
  • hang there as long as you like while holding right click on the top of the window
  • used to gain unfair advantage in survival games et cetera
  • tested with windows 10

Thebatman2020 showed it to me and Buddyism in-game and all 3 of us were testing it haha.

I think it freezes all local scripts as well, or at least loops.

This is a pretty bad thing in survival games like @Polyhex’s Super Bomb Survival and @HomingBeacon’s Zombie Rush. Players can use it to avoid danger unfairly. It’d be nice if ROBLOX fixed it.

It’s been a little over a year since this was bumped. This bug is still commonly exploited.

IIRC, TNT Rush, one of the games used in the Voltron event, had to implement a workaround that kicked players if they froze in the air for too long because this was such a common issue. Longstanding and widespread because players have had plenty of time to document and spread the exploit.

This has been around for ages

It’s been a year and a half since this was bumped, almost three since this thread was posted, and longer still since this technique became widely known. Any updates on it?
