Rogue WATER BOTTLES are ruining people’s lives on FIFA 17

FIFA 17 has had some strange issues – from dodgy goalkeeper AI to bizarre referee decisions.

But now there’s something new on the block… and it’s arguably the most annoying of the lot.

Rogue water bottles.

Although they’ve always featured in the game as a minor detail, they’re starting to turn up in strange places.

One gamer posted a clip on the FIFA sub-Reddit of a water bottle appearing in front of goal.

A shot comes in only for the ball to take a deflection off the bottle and trickle in to the net (No pun intended).

Now, truth be told, the bottle’s physics are incredibly realistic – but it must be very annoying.


It’s not the only time a rogue water bottle has ruined a match on FIFA 17.

Just a quick search reveals loads of examples where bottles have randomly appeared and caused a goal.

Now for the bad news.

EA recently released a patch to sort out a few issues with the game – notably removing the penalty arrow from FIFA Ultimate Team matches.

So, it seems the water bottle issue hasn’t been plugged (Like what we did there?).

That means you may have to live with it for some time.
