In 2012, a YouTube user named Pham Duy Anh recorded an obscure glitch in the game. The video showed an invisible pedestrian, which the uploader claimed was a ghost, shooting the player on the highway in Bone County. While the pedestrian and its weapon could not be seen, the muzzle flash could still be seen, and CJ reacted to being shot at. The quality of the recorded video is low, downplaying the authenticity of the investigation. The evidence of the ghost collected by the player could easily be a result of a modification. Even if the player didn't mod the game, the event could have been caused by a glitch.
