Amusing Glitches?

Has anyone encountered some hilarious glitches like I have? So far I've seen?:
 

  • Firing an invisible gun in multiplayer freeroam. 
  • Getting my donkey stuck on a fence. (Great euphemism, right?)
  • My model in multiplayer turning invisible as well.

2 of 3 of those glitches has happened to me multiple times.   Not really amusing after awhile ;/....

I could have sworn I seen someone just randomly appear into the background in the opening cutscene. I laughed and thought "Oh that cant be good"

I was playing multiplayer free roam with ScubaStoobie and we saw TONS of horses running around. We go down a hill to find a tree that has THOUSANDS of horses falling from it. Totally lagged my game out and froze my xbox but it was so worth it.

I just had my first one. I was riding my horse when all the sudden I was ten feet in the air and couldn't move. Then a cougar leaps at me and gets stuck right below me. I jumped from my horse and my horse disappeared, but I'm still stuck in the air. I shoot and kill the cougar and he falls to the ground.  Not the best way to kill my first cougar. I had to reset btw.

This invisible stuff happened to me also. I did no notice it in any modes other than free mode though.

When selecting what I would look like in the multiplayer, all of the preview models are invisible. Calling an invisible donkey. Tried to use an open door as cover and it swung me around and flung me into a room full of baddies. All of this stuff was in the multiplayer.

Not only did my guns disappear, but my hate did later too.  Then at another point my horse and I completely vanished.

The invisibility does not amuse.

One of the reasons I want this game is for those inevitable glitches and unwanted environment interactions.  I fell in love with Fallout 3 after a Giant Radscorpion spawned continuously when I fast-traveled to Paradise Falls.  I must have reloaded my save ten times to strategically kill the thing before it killed the slavers.  Fantastic stuff.

I just saw a variant of the Low Rider one. It was a carraige with four horses, two in the front and the carriage were bouncing (though not as intensely as in that video). Eventually it just stopped. Amusing.

Seems not, though what is really crazy is that there isn't any flaw with the rendering, the movement is crazy still the animation is awesome! Such an unusual bug.  
 
Rockstar is a great developer even in its bugs.

I've telekinetically lassoed a horse a few times :) 
 
I've had my gun and horse simply turn invisible. I loved shooting down the men at Pike's with no gun in my hand though. I laughed the entire time.
 
The crazy graphical glitches haven't bothered me, and they very rarely cause any trouble. The game has some rough edges, but none have been enough to bug me. Mostly they're just funny as hell. If the game were less fun and free than it is, maybe they'd bother me more.

I have encountered the invisible gun glitch as well.
 
My most recent glitch was when trying to explode a crate, hit the 'y' button and my player just stands there like it is trying to arm a bomb.  I had to have someone shoot me to get out of the locked animation.

It was really annoying when myself and my horse was invisible.

I don't find glitches amusing in any games, I hate them and I hate that current games have so many glitches in this day-and-age. And now this thread is an example of people accepting glitches and its pretty damn sad.

I've only seen a minor bug so far - the light in my Armadillo rented room kept flickering off and on like it was loading 2 textures in rapid fire.

I've had my horse keel over and die for no reason at all more than once. 
 
Also had a glitch, where like ten Mexican people appeared in mid air, like they were hung up on coat hangers or something.

I can't, it froze my xbox before I could do anything. Didn't you read my post?

First horse I got to in the game had the glitchy moment of where instead of getting on the horse properly, the guy was standing up on top of the saddle. Shortly afterwards I was roaming around the first ranch & the horse got killed by a cougar. Time to reload.

My entire avatar and/or horse routinely becomes invisible. It's really cool when only the horse disappears and my dude is floating through the world. I also shot another player in the leg once and he got stuck to his horse upside down, it ran for a good two minutes while he cursed me out. We became boys later and gained a few levels completing "quests" (whatever they're referred to).
 
This game is too much good times.

I just shot a guy while he was running, and he jumped like 30 feet straight back in the air.
 
Edit: 
Hahahaahah.  I was just following a posse of 4 npc's on horseback, and for no reason at all, they all veered sharply to the right, right into a mountain.

My first time entering the Thieves Landing saloon, I ran full speed into the doors and both of them broke off the hinges and one of them sled past the bar. It was one of those "WTF I didn't do anything!" moments.

I found a glitch where you call your horse underneath a cliff and it spawns on top and tries to jump down, but falls to it's death.

Its suprising how many glitches there are in this game, its funny for awhile but I hope they fix it soon. Having random NPCs  levitating 10ft in the air asking you to join them at their camp is sort of fine. Having 10 bandits chargin at you invisible in free roam is kinda worrying.

All games have glitches. Just compare this to Stalker Clear skies.

In multiplayer free roam my character randomly flung 50 feet into the air and fell and died. Couldn't stop laughing.

Having random stuff happening to the npc and you in a free roaming game like this is just hilarious,  but they are working on a patch to fix some of the glitches I`ve heard.
