There is something seriously wrong with the CC's after the May Patch (New Exploit)

I’ve also noticed an increased amount of free break out rules. Generally when two players are attacking me.

yeah that’s the grit protection mechanic and has always been in the game tho. it is definitely annoying but the devs confirmed it to be a “feature” a few months ago. this one however is a new bug/exploit after the most recent patch or so because none of these players have grit and are just instantly getting up from knockdowns

I play spear dude, I know exactly what he is dealing with. It’s extremely obnoxious and has been happening more and more since the the last 2 big patches. You can’t spam your knock downs immediately after a stagger or stun. If you do it to quickly they will get up everytime. You have to let them sit for a .5 second before you throw the jav or sweep otherwise they will instantly get up. Idk if it’s intended or a bug. I’m just telling you how to fix it.

Swap weapons when you’re on the ground.


thank you

Thank you for bringing this up! I’ll have the team look closer into this!

Thank you! Incase you didn’t see, Dagrothus figured out how to replicate it and I just tested it as well. Swapping weapons while knocked down instantly gets you up

There are many different ways to do it as well. If i hold right click (block) and swap weapons I can get out of knockdowns 100% of the time

Does this also break stuns, because DRs seem to be having strange effects, often working when they shouldn’t be. Bummer for knockdowns :confused:

This I didnt even think was a bug it happens randomly and it made things like BB meta not too oppressive if you were able to pull it off

like I was able to maybe 50 % of the time on a really good day, usually a lot less move my player model by hitting dodge + blast shot when I would get blast shot and be on the ground just enough of a movement for them to mess up the combo

LMAO welp i already swap with rolls as a habit from the old light roll that explains alot

grit bug has been in game for a long time now. Very annoying when you stun bruiser with shield bash and they don’t get staggered after you feral rush them, cos they’re still in grit even while stunned…


Please fix asap

Please don’t. This whole exploit nonsense is a symptom of players failing to grasp the concept of complex reactionary combat systems. There is no real problem with this is new worlds is pettering off into an over simplified combat mechanic and it’s grown boring for many of the players that have already left.

Looks like full freedom set. or maybe the cleansing perk working even while stunned and they drank a potion and it broke the stun.

are you okay? it’s an exploit lol. hold right click and swap weapons to instantly get up from any knockdown. i literally cannot get killed right now after i found out how to do it.


I agree, fix this as soon as possible. This will make any CC build unusable.
And I thought all the time that this is a desync problem. It is also already remarkable how much this already exploit. (and because of this thread probably even more from now on).

fun fact, it wasn’t the recent patch that made this even possible. I’ve posted about this a while back.

I made a video too. lol over 2 months ago

People don’t want to listen until it happens to them. otherwise they just go about never knowing it’s a huge issue until it’s exploited. I even said it was easily exploitable.

The devs absolutely knew about this, yet didn’t fix it before adding in more new stuff XD smh


There double clicking a direction and shift, its the same as the double knock down mech. Frees you from it, if you do it quick enough, you will roll even in heavy. Its so people can escape chain cc’s. Has been in from start of game, but has never worked right. Works maybe 40% of the time.

You simply just weapon swap into a dodge when you get knocked down. lol don’t even have to dodge… just weapon swap will work, if timed right: you stand back up instantly, which can be AHK macro scripted for a single keystroke.

if timed too late: you fall back down and extend the knockdown effect, no joke lmao
