Update: The content of the Reddit thread has been removed. However users on that thread have been able to replicate this.

inFamous Second is by far the best title available on Sony’s current generation console, the PlayStation 4. Second Son takes the series into new directions with amazing visual effects along with solid gameplay mechanics.

Sucker Punch Productions, the developers behind the inFamous franchise are known to do things differently. Whether it be adding teasers or filling the game’s world with secrets, they have this tendency to keep player entertained. One such cool feature was discovered by a Redditor who found out that when your DualShock 4’s battery drains out, Delsin Rowe will keep running out of the danger area and hide himself behind cover.

He recounts his experience as follows: “While I was in the middle of a pretty heated fight my controller’s battery died and disconnected. Delsin kept running on the screen and I was convinced he was going to just keep running straight and cause me to leave the fighting area. But, instead he ran out of the danger area and hid behind cover. I know it’s simple, but what an amazingly convenient feature.”

This is indeed a neat feature and is a better alternative than just automatically pausing the screen. Sounds pretty cool, right?

    It’d be even funnier if he lost some of his powers and started complaining about running out of juice or something too. heh

    • Ricardo Jackson

      That sounds cool

      I think it should do that, run for cover, and THEN pause the game as well… would be the perfect setup. Because yea running for cover is nice..but don’t the enemies find you anyway eventually if the game isn’t paused?? lol…I guess it makes gamers wanna run to plug their controller in before the enemies find that hiding spot!

  • Psionicinversion

    feature for noobs

      feature for your mom 😉

    The ps4 has delivered for gamers this gen, and the incoming update will solve some of the early wants of gamers, but the battery life of the ds4 definitely needs improvement and has not been addressed at all by Sony. Give me a better battery in the controller and I’m happy Sony.

    • Demetre HG

      Next Gen my butt bahahahaha keep dreaming

    • datdude

      Is that a response, or is that your limited mental capacity struggling to form a cogent point? Don’t bother replying, we all know your type.

    • Patrick Tuohy

      That’s a response from a so called moron

  • Lacerz

    This happened to me. I knew my battery was low, but didn’t realize how low. I was in a district challenge on a rooftop when it died. Since the game didn’t pause, I figured I was dead, but instead Delsin went behind some signage until I was able to plug the controller in. Pretty sweet.

    • shivam.chandra24

      damn , why did i charge my controller ! gonna try this lol

  • Gamer1231

    That’s cool and all, but I’d rather the game just pause.

    • spideynut71

      No kidding. The DS4 battery has a very short life as it is…and no option to swap the battery out, like with XBOX controllers….and yet SP thought it was a good idea to throw a bunch of pointless controller gimmicks in the game that drained the battery even faster. If I wanted to play games tethered to a damn cord, I’d unbox my old SNES.

  • Krepler

    The controller died on me while I was on a railing and Delsin started to do a sidewards hop/shuffle and stopped when he reached a wall. I thought it was pretty funny but just a glitch until I read this, although, it could still be one.

  • Blake Campbell

    Didn’t happen for me

  • maxinthefax

    fuc*ing nice!

  • spideynut71

    They had to do something, because this game destroys your battery life with all of the silly controller gimmicks.

  • Andrew dreadcassidy27
