One of the most curious bugs is athletes who simply disappear on the screen, whether in non-interactive scenes, replays or even during gameplay, sometimes with their clothes still visible as in the case of the image below.
It is a little more difficult to detect the error during matches, but there are cases of players who have captured invisible athletes on video, whose presence can only be confirmed by carrying the ball and a marker indicating that someone is selected. It’s still unclear what causes the error, and it’s harder to happen.

This bug was one of the most publicized since the game’s release. Occasionally match judges sink into the grass, but they don’t just stand still as they appear. They move across the field, not changing position, and other players still step over it as if there’s nothing on the ground.

The Motion Matching system that promised to make eFootball 2022 animations more natural and realistic seems to have presented two big problems that are very frequent in the game. When a character touches another, instead of his body deforming or receiving friction in a natural way, his limbs bend and stretch in bizarre ways. The second problem is that physics is sometimes nullified as well, and limbs such as characters’ arms and legs cut across other players’ models.

Something similar to the problem of body animations seems to happen with the players’ faces, which has generated very strange expressions in the main athletes of the game. Cheeks and lips seem to move in exaggerated ways, so that mouths sometimes look open for a dentist appointment, sometimes show scary smiles.

PlayStation One cheering
The graphics of eFootball 2022 received a lot of criticism from players, but one of the funniest complaints made by users is that the audience in the stands “looks like PlayStation One”, in the words of some posts. The models really bring very little detail, have weird textures, repeat and cut through each other in a way that doesn’t feel at all natural.

There are cases where eFootball bugs completely alter the look of the game, such as loading only basic colors in place of athlete textures or this weird black and white effect captured in the image below. The first problem seems to be just a matter of point loading, but it’s hard to understand what happened to leave the entire field split into black and white.

This issue appears to be an evolution of the physics errors caused by player animation. In some extreme cases it appears that contact can completely separate an athlete’s upper and lower part. Technically, they are always connected, even if they don’t look like it, and generally the separation isn’t as complete visually as in this image.

Another bug that is not so frequent, but the cause is also unknown is that of players running towards the goal and getting stuck in it. The strangest thing is that the error seems to happen when athletes should run in the opposite direction to return to the game, but for some reason they enter the opponent’s goal and get stuck in the net.
