I observed a bug within the single-player marketing campaign on the PlayStation 5, in a component the place two characters are standing on a platform being airlifted by a helicopter. The platform carries a mainframe laptop and the 2 characters should fend off attackers from all sides. The bug is a graphics flaw the place you slide off the platform because it rocks backwards and forwards. I encountered this on a few problem modes on the PS5.
