Reddit user Parkslider discovered a bug in Valorant where you can get stuck inside Phoenix's character model if you plant the spike as he returns from his Ultimate.

Valorant Bug Gets You Stuck Inside Phoenix After Planting the Spike

Phoenix's ultimate, Run it Back, lets him place a marker where he will return to with full health after he dies or after a timer runs out. It also has the unintended ability to consume other players, apparently.

Parkslider's video shows Sage planting the spike right over Phoenix's revival marker. As the spike animation plays out, Phoenix returns to the marker and emerges from his ultimate. It seems like Phoenix respawns around her, as Sage gets stuck inside Phoenix's model unable to leave until the spike blows them both apart.

Usually Phoenix returning from his ultimate just pushes him to the side if a player is over the marker. Players have speculated that the bug comes about in combination with planting the spike, though other situations where players have gotten stuck inside characters have been reported.

A few players on the original Reddit thread reported that when Sage revived them in a corner, and they both got stuck. Riot employee Giraffy commented that these issue were noted and passed along to the Valorant team.

The scariest part of this bug isn't that you can't move, it's seeing the other character's eyeballs through their models.
