Bears appear to be able to climb up cliff faces by walking on air
I also noticed bears appearing and disappearing at random. sometimes right behind me when I was skinning even though I just checked all around in a open field.
Thank you for reminding me.If bears spawning 15 metres away every few mins, and them "hearing" you when you stand perfectly still in a sealed building wasn't bad enough I learned the hard way that they walk up shear cliffs as easily as an Olympic athlete walks 'down' a gentle slope.So much for attempting to kite them.These bears are giving me PTSD.

Was in the middle of building a base on a cliff. Had a ramp going up, a gap I could jump across, then a base built into the cliff. Was out collecting wood when a bear spotted me. I ran up, jumped the gap, then turned to find where the bear was. Meanwhile he climbs right up the cliff and gets behind me, knocking me off to my death. Animals shouldn't be able to climb directly up sheer cliff faces.
I could not agree more with this.
Good god, this made me SO MAD!!! A bear climbs right up a cliff and kills me.. If I accidentally fall into a ledge and he sees me, I can literally not move while he's climbing 180 degree upward inclines.
Yep, animals should walk up vertical walls, or steep inclines.Except maybe goats.
Bears are too OP and can clime 90° cliffs making them legit unstoppable.

BEARS are unstoppable and that makes it FUN, Killing a bear is FUN, the RISK is FUN, if you stand on a cliff and shoot a bear and it can't climb up, WHAT is the challenge in that?? NOT FUN.....use other strategies, hunt as a party, build a defense, a Gun can either One shot or two shot a bear....killing a bear in water is easy, with out any threats to your Survival you make as well be playing duck hunter.
I built a road up to a ledge on a mountainside and destroyed the road to the top. Stood on a platform and shot a bullet at a bear. Bear runs up and mauls me . WTF??
I agree with IrishViking. Guns are a game changer when hunting bears. I truly think if all you had was a bow and arrow you'd be nearly dead every time against a bear IRL.. so I'm ok with them being difficult when you're still getting your feet wet on the planet.

animals can run up cliffs, when I stand on top, which I myself can not manage to climb. shot at a bear and it ran straight up to kill me

You've got to be kidding me .... vertical cliff and the polar bear climbed straight up it and KILLED me DEAD ... yes ... don't you get it Dev's ... I put a ramp/stone bases etc up and onto a cliff then shot a polar bear and he came over climbed straight up the cliff and killed me not ONCE but TWICE just to make sure I wasn't seeing things ... Fix it or I'm Thru ....
So many times its bear that kills me, its annoying in that we think we are safe trying to shoot a bear but it just runs up any wall like it's nothing. Walls that we cannot even climb up, the bears seem to be able to... There patch finder needs fixing please as these bug issue is starting to put me off playing.
And I love this game GGS and thank you for it........but these things can and will put people off...
The same thing happened to me too, its unreal how i have to use stuff to climb a mountain while a polar bear gets a freebie...
bears area able to climb areas other creatures cant. like a sheer cliff face i cant even go up. makes it really hard to build high structures when they just pop up to the top
Looks like the same as https://icarus.featureupvote.com/suggestions/212363/bug-bears-able-to-climb-cliff-faces
Its one thing to keep the game challenging, but another when you work to what you think is a good strategic position to hunt/kill a bear and bam the bear almost flow to you.
This bug was reported in BW2. It is now one week after release and nothing has been done. Dev please fix this bug. It is one thing to make the bear into a tank. They are big and strong and seriously scary. But please don't give them super powers on top of that. Please fix them so they don't run up vertical cliffs.
I don't mind them walking up cliffs, bears like to climb trees irl i don't know how they would go up rock I imagine not well but they climb too fast, they should slowly make their way up so you can't just cheese them from up high but you also don't have to sprint away if a bear sees you from the bottom of a cliff.
had a bear on waterfall expedition climb right up a literally mountain and walk around it to reach a plateau where i was. Players cant climb it neither can any other predators. Bears seem bugged
All too often we get attacked by a bear that against all laws of physics drops from a cave ceiling, attacks from within rock faces, attacks through stone and rock, etc. I like to make huts out of hollowed out boulders and bears swipe and bite right through them. My latest death is from a bear that was attacking me inside a cave entrance. I never saw it until I was dead and it crawled out of the ceiling then did a SpiderMan and walked straight up a sheer cliff face.
Please fix this crap.
Valid, there's almost no leverage against bears when it comes to the terrain, they go vertical up the walls to get to you.
bears are evil, i can relate! they climb rocks i strugle jumping throw, makeing the chase 99% of the times, mortal on early game.
They are spider bears lol, The wall Climbing and swim like they got a motor on there butts
Agreed, it is crazy. No point to use height to your advantage since they can climb vertical.
This is crazy and just unfair. Challenging enough as it is. Heck might as well have them climb up when the cliff doesn't go up straight but actually out a little as to create an overhang.
~85 degree rock formation: Me standing in ~6m height and the bear just "porting" up there (it's obviously no longer climbing) and pushing me down finishing me instantly… One of the latest patches to bears is just borked. I expect physics to be existent for players AND all animals. The same physics. Or you could replace "bears" with "rockets covered in fur" as they are behaving exactly like this ignoring any physics applying to players.
Seriously the bear climbs up vertical mountains. Getting to the point you can get an advantage on the bear. This is ridiculous
I was on top of a sheer cliff face, maybe a good 50 foot drop down and a bear did some glitch gymnastics and parkoured up to the top and slapped me off the side, breaking my legs and then he jumped down without breaking any of its legs and killed me, then slept on top of my corpse. What a crazy world.
Absolute true, this Has to end fast. The bears Can run whole mountain Up and down really fast
Bears simply dont have logic, they just run straight mountain Up to kill you

During Icestorm: Expedition, the final polar bear run up the side of cliff face, to where you place the radar. Another player was located here and was swatted at by the polar bear. Resulting in being punted from the top of the rock like a football landing about 25 feet to the west. Comical and annoying at the same time.
They can run up a 90 deg. slope. I was at the top and he came right up the side and killed me. No way.

Yes, it's so annoying that bears can climb everywhere even vertical cliffs that should be impossible.

I sat there and thought about how could I get a strategic advantage against this psychotic beast. I thought long and hard about it. I slept on it...I even woke up in the wee hours of the night, screaming like a girl coated in sweat, and reaching for my knife, ...about it.I had built a "Stone" cabin at the beginning of the Arctic Valley, one level off of the ground on stone stilts. I surrounded this with a solid stone wall. Next, I built a path along the valley wall that sloped upward to around 100 feet off of the ground. I had recently learned how to build the bolt action r
I laddered myself up a nearly vertical cliff face and I had to have been several dozen meters up. After crouch-walking along a sort-of diagonal cross-beam arrangement, even further up, I found a polar bear for my experiment.I got one crit shot on the bear with a rifle and watched in horror as it loped rapidly to the cliff-face and accelerated *up*.I managed a couple more, desperate shots before it made it to me, not once slowing-down, and transformed me into shredded meat and flying bone-shards.I get that exotics do weird things to Earth critters but even an angry Tokay gecko on PCP cannot climb 80 meters straight-up, faster than some motor vehicles can manage to do 0 to 97 km/hr on level asphalt.
At least black bears can climb trees and open doors without much problem (no idea if polar bears can, not that many trees nor doors in the polar) so maybe don't nerf bears too much ;-) A simple wooden platform a bit up a slope is enough IF you remove the stairs after you climb up that platform BEFORE you annoy the bear.
the skin/model implies that these are black bears, but they behave as aggressively as very large brown bears. its a bit of a mismatch honestly.
Lmao, seems like all of us have the same problem and tried the "floor tile on a cliff face" or ladders or ramps if it's not angled forward the bear will climb it. to the person that suggested a gun/rifle, that does not work on short timer missions. Black/brown bears are not the problem, the Polar Bears are lol. Way OP, at least they should stagger when hit in an eye with an flint or bone arrow. I did kill Blanco on easy mode lol.
