I learned the hard way that Lings can headcrab-gib other Lings. Why doe

Why is this? Is it an oversight? Because it seems like an oversight. No way (afaik) to stop it. Is this the new Ling v Ling meta? Get him into crit and then headcrab and bite him? Because that seems unintended.

I mean, you’d have to strip naked or else you would lose all your clothes and gear.

You don’t even get the point bonus of absorbing another ling.

Can’t you headcrab yourself while in crit?

yeah but I didn’t want to

Actually the only way to stop it. Other headcrab will be gibbed.


yeah this makes it seem like a huge oversight

Sometimes people are assholes…

Why shouldn’t you be able to headcrab other lings? It may be unintended but its a last fuck you, because the other ling now either has to headcrab and loose all their stuff or you become them. That exact thing happened between me and Chamoral and I found it funny.
tl;dr unintended but funny
