Pathfinding Bot "Teleports" to the Player when rotating


(Idk why the Video doesnt work the first 10 secs)

–Problem

if WaypointPlayerDistance <= 4 and PlayerDistance <= 4 then
					NpcHrp.CFrame = CFrame.lookAt(NpcHrp.Position, NpcHrp.Position + ((NearestPlayer.Character.HumanoidRootPart.Position - NpcHrp.Position).Unit * Vector3.new(1,0,1)))
					Punch1:Play()
					HitBoxModule.new(script.Parent, Vector3.new(5,5.5,6), Vector3.new(4,0,0), 5, 0.07, 0.43, "Punch1")
					task.wait(0.5)
					break
				end

have you tried lowering the attack distance? It looks like the CFrame.lookAt is teleporting the bot closer. Maybe you could take the PlayersDistance into the calculation?
