Cyberpunk 2077 drivers are showing their butts to all of Night City

Pants off while driving

Who would have guessed that I would have to write a sequel to last week’s Cyberpunk 2077 glitch post, about characters who can’t get their penises to stop poking through their pants? Yes, the dick glitch stuck out, but players are facing another modesty problem with their Cyberpunk 2077 characters. They won’t keep their pants on, in particular, while driving.

Are you wondering how we know this? If you’re driving from third-person view, you can’t see your character in the car. You can’t see the legs! Well, that’s where the T-pose comes in. Players are finding their characters T-posing while driving. And you can see the butt. This bug is happening for players on motorcycles, too — including one where the player’s character became fully nude while on the bike.

It’s widespread enough that multiple players on social media have posted about it.

T-pose glitches, in general, are one of the common bugs players are finding in Cyberpunk 2077. The T-pose has already been a meme for years now, referencing how characters in 3D animation are typically positioned during the creation process. The T-pose sticks out, an unexpected glitch that signals very visibly that something is wrong — sometimes to the point where games get outright canceled and endlessly mocked because of their visibility. In 2018, T-posing was everywhere. I haven’t seen someone doing it in real life for a while, but the T-pose meme community on Reddit is having fun with the Cyberpunk 2077 glitch.

But the pants-off-while-driving glitch really is a curious one.

Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red apologized on Monday for the game’s poor performance on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It said players on console can ask for a refund, and that the developer will work to correct its mistakes. Two major patches are coming in January and February, with smaller updates coming “frequently whenever new improvements are ready.”

“They won’t make the game on last-gen look like it’s running on a high-spec PC or next-gen console, but it will be closer to that experience than it is now,” CD Projekt Red said in the message.
