While Marvel’s Spider-Man is a very polished game, it is not without its bugs, and a recent video shows Black Cat completely glitching out.

p>Marvel’s Spider-Man is still an incredibly popular game years after release, with many replaying the Insomniac title or hopping into it for the first time. However, one Marvel’s Spider-Man player that was going through the DLC had a particularly interesting encounter with Black Cat.

Much like in the comics and other adaptations that feature the character, Black Cat has a very playful relationship with the wall crawler in Marvel’s Spider-Man. The flirty and feisty thief will often switch between helping Peter Parker and causing trouble throughout New York City that he has to fix, and she does just that in Marvel’s Spider-Man. While she does not meet with Peter face to face in the main game, as she instead leaves him collectibles to find, The City That Never Sleeps DLC sees the two interacting in person.

When chasing down Black Cat in one of The City That Never Sleeps DLC’s missions, Reddit user ElijahChahine quickly realized that the game was not working as intended. For whatever reason, Felicia Hardy is seen running in circles, with the character’s movement not broken when the Redditor gets in her path. Before long, she is seen running around Spidey, with it being hard not to laugh at his head turning to follow her erratic movement. The sight is certainly strange, though thankfully the player is eventually able to fix the problem.

By using the triangle prompt for a web strike, the cutscene begins and Peter tackles Black Cat to resume their chase. As for why the bug happened, it is impossible to tell what could have gone wrong. Perhaps something got in the way of Black Cat’s pathing, and she was unable to continue her journey through New York City due to the AI’s confusion. On the other hand, maybe the chase went on for so long that she was no longer programmed to keep running, with Insomniac allowing all players to finish the chase by having her run in place at the path’s end.

Unsurprisingly, the post has done well on Reddit, bringing in almost 2,000 upvotes from the Marvel’s Spider-Man fan base. The comments were full of jokes, with one Redditor quoting The Flash TV series. Another named Mysterious_Phrase_33 made a great comparison, saying that Felicia simply got the “zoomies.” For those that are not cat owners, this is something that happens fairly often, with felines randomly running around their environment - a fitting description of what Black Cat is doing in this brief video.

While it remains to be seen if Black Cat will make an appearance in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, many enjoyed seeing her in the original game’s DLC. Though this Redditor’s Black Cat chase played out very differently from most, at least the glitch was harmless and they were able to continue on with the mission.

Marvel’s Spider-Man is available now on PS4 and PS5.
