Sliding characters
Every now and then I'll see a character that slides instead of running. Is that a command that you use or is it a glitch?

Are they taunting while moving or just sliding around?

I was playing the other day and I only saw one person doing it in the game. It was an engie on my team that was sliding throughout our base the whole match. If it was lag wouldn't it affect everyones movement?

Sometimes if you're agressive with the alt-tab and you come back, everyone is in a frozen standing pose and still moving. That or they're suddenly swimming no matter what until you reconnect. When that happens you're the only lucky one to see it.

Huh, never seen that happen. Only time I've noticed anything like that is when someone is frozen in the high-five position, but not just sliding around in a normal pose.

Was the engie building stuff and shooting people normally while sliding?
or was he just sliding around doing nothing? He might of used the Civilian glitch

I'm sure that's not what's causing it. This is what I've seen except it was only 1 person doing it.

that's true, i think it's still possible to do that as engie
i know how to do it as spy and i think it might apply to engie as well

I think he was just sliding around without engaging in any action. So you can actually use the civilian glitch? If so how do you do it.

For spy you have to use an action taunt like schadenfreude or the director's vision, and before the taunt finishes, type "build 3 0" into the console. I suspect it might work for engie as well if you replace the "build" command with the command to build a sentry/dispenser/tele.

AHA! That's what I was looking for. Dagnabit, I actually looked on the wiki but couldn't find it. Thanks.
