Awesome inFAMOUS: Second Son Glitch Allows You to “Make it Rain” Regardless of Weather/Time Setting

Yesterday’s inFAMOUS: Second Son patch introduced the possibility to change the time of day, but there’s one more layer of “customization” you can add, even if it probably wasn’t intended (but you never really know with Sucker Punch).

You can activate the rain effect regardless of the time and weather setting by exploiting what seems to be a very easily accessible glitch.

Run all the way back to the bridge where you came from at the beginning of the game (there are ways to actually cross it again, but you don’t need to for this).   Once you reach the place showcased in the screenshots below, just jump in the water between the broken extremities of the bridge. Anywhere beyond the black concrete spike in the pictures is fine.

Then press the touch pad to get your feet back on dry land, and it’ll be raining, no matter what time of day you have activated, giving you quite a few more weather combinations for your photo mode adventures.

Even more interestingly, this glitch works at any time in the game. Having completed the story and unlocked the time of day settings isn’t necessary, so if you really dislike to be dry and warm and want to “make it rain” at any point in the story, now you can.

  • mooshroom

    Just yet another layer of awesome in this game. lol

    • Delsin Rowe

      seriously dude , it looks great. if it was at 1080p , im sure i would use it for many things.

      • mooshroom

        The compression is my least favorite part of the PS4 share feature.

        • hunger strike

          You can get full 1080p screenshots if you want. It’s best to set up a dummy account or an overseas account (if you don’t already have one) to do it.
          1) take screenshots (duh)
          2) Send screenshots to any other account via PSN message. If you don’t want to spam a friend, send them to the dummy account.
          3) Sign in to your PlayStation app on your phone and you can see your messages there. View the image you want to save and it’ll give you an option to save it to your phone.
          4) Pull image off the phone and you’ve got yourself a full res screenshot you can do what you want with.

          Hopefully they would allow 1080p screenshot captures in 1.70 update.

          • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

            I think a direct transfer to USB after the update will remove any compression issues for sure.

    • Raven Nafariea

      Man you take great shots! That chain looks amazing!

    • generic-user-name a.k.a GUN

      Nice shot!

      I think this is my best one so far.

    • MoeGunz

      Oh yes the Photo Mode is very addictive. Comment section messing up my post 🙁

  • NinoBr0wn

    But does it save the game as raining after the glitch or does it go back to normal after you load it up the next time?
