Baldur’s Gate 3 is a great game, even if your party members are constantly on the move climbing the ladders. It’s an ever-amazing masterpiece full of epic action and breathtaking role-playing scenarios right from the start. So yes, we forgive it if there are a few hair movement issues. Today we decided to celebrate Baldur’s Gate 3 for everything it has to offer, including the ten most hilarious glitches.
10. Random skeleton dance-off
Astarion is the villain of the group, so he naturally sneaks behind enemy lines unnoticed. As expected, unsuspecting enemies continue their usual business, discussing the Absolute, their fatigue from dealing with refugees, and so on. I don’t know what skeletons can gossip about, but I don’t think anyone expected this impromptu dance dance to take place in the shadows.
9. However, is it open?
The purpose of posting guards to monitor prisoners is to ensure that they remain in their cells. But in the middle of a prison brawl, an unexpected enemy guard tried to open a cell door only to find it locked. Because of this error in Baldur’s Gate 3, he missed the memo. He persistently tried to open it, which resulted in the “Locked” sound and speech bubble appearing about a hundred times. If only we all had a little of his persistence.
8. A Gith error
For many, encountering the Githyanki Patrol is the first level of difficulty in Baldur’s Gate 3. Personally, I have never saved more scum in my life. However, this player decided to accept his unfortunate dice roll and join the all-out battle against the Githyanki… except it didn’t trigger at all. It’s the thought that counts, right?
7. What actually happens if Gale doesn’t eat a magic item?
Gale is one of the most powerful wizards in Faerun, and luckily you managed to recruit him as a companion. Unfortunately, your feelings towards him may worsen after you find out that he devours magical items. I decided to bench him myself after sacrificing my most valuable staff. I’ve never had the opportunity to see what happens when he’s never fed. So maybe he’s just having trouble resisting the urge to T-pose forever?
6. Party Morning Situps
After a long rest, you wake up surrounded by your most loyal companions. You would expect them to get out of bed slowly and perhaps have a cup of coffee to start the day energized. I never thought for a second that they would jump into a situp routine first thing in the morning. Is this how Gale and Astarion get their abs?
5. Short King Gale
Whether because of his terribly unpleasant illness caused by consuming magic or his sudden attempts to manipulate your character, Gale has become the butt of all jokes. This error in Baldur’s Gate 3 leaves the man no peace. Because this player was standing on a ledge, a cutscene did not trigger properly, turning Waterdeep’s most infamous wizard into a minor king.
4. The side of the wither you didn’t want to see
To be clear, Withers is not a romantic character in Baldur’s Gate 3. He doesn’t really tend to get naked either. However, this player’s wither decided to appear naked in a cutscene for no particular reason. It’s a side of him I wish I couldn’t see.
3. The start was difficult
In case you forgot, Baldur’s Gate 3 begins with your character escaping a nautiloid ship thanks to a random hit from a random rock. This causes them to fall off the ship and fall from the sky onto Ravaged Beach. It sounds pretty ridiculous, but it’s actually a well-animated cutscene that leaves quite an impression on players – at least most players. It turns out that a significant portion of the player base had to witness their character T-pose on the way to the beach. I suspect that left a completely different impression.
2. Korilla’s “We Won’t Always Be Watching”
A player encountered a hilarious error during a cutscene in Act 1. After Korilla, one of Raphael’s henchmen, saves our group from Priestess Gut, there is an opportunity to thank her for her good deeds. Usually she responded with a warning and left the scene. However, for some reason, this player’s Korilla continues to watch him even when he walks away. Does she walk backwards as she says it? No, she bends and contorts Matrix-style, all the while looking the player directly in the eyes. I would argue that it’s not a bug, but rather another disrespectful game mechanic.

1. The time Shadowheart was possessed
Characters getting stuck in the ladder animation is a known bug in Baldur’s Gate 3. It happened in the Early Access version and is still happening after Hotfix 6. At this point I don’t even want them to patch it at all. So many memes have come from this, from the “Do the Ladder” party dance to this example of Shadowheart randomly climbing invisible ladders in the middle of the night. What are you trying to achieve, girl?
