Bugs[edit | edit source]
- Carter's head may not explode. This results in him standing still, unable to be engaged in conversation, but still killable. This is sometimes activated when the player tries talking with Carter when he's running away, but before his slave collar detonates.
- When entering Paradise Falls for the first time, Carter is dead but has not been killed by slave collar as his head is still attached to his body along with slave collar.
