God of War's Baldur Gives You the Finger in a New Camera Hack

God of War's Baldur Gives You the Finger in a New Camera Hack

There's some weird stuff going on behind the scenes.

God of War has been out for a few years now (oh, how time flies!). A pretty prolific data miner has managed to hack the game's camera, leading to one pretty weird discovery: Baldur giving you the middle finger off-camera.

In the video below, Lance McDonald manages to hack God of War's camera to turn it into a free-roaming camera. The camera can go anywhere while the game itself rolls on, leading to the discovery below of what happens when Baldur first "dies" at the hands of Kratos.

Turns out after having his neck snapped by the Greek God, Baldur isn't too happy. In fact, he really isn't happy at all, and after tumbling off a cliff and into a huge chasm, his character model is suspended in midair, raising two middle fingers upwards towards where the fight with Kratos took place.

Well… I'm certainly looking forward to Cory Barlog or anyone else at Sony Santa Monica explaining how this came about.

If you're unfamiliar with Lance McDonald's previous work, he's a pretty prolific data miner within the Dark Souls/Bloodborne communities. Outside of digging up and posting cut content scrapped in FromSoftware games, McDonald's recently had a lot of fun delving into and breaking down P.T., the demo for the scrapped Silent Hills game from Hideo Kojima and Konami.
