    Hey guys! By now, I'm sure most of you have encountered the invisible cog glitch during a boss battle. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's basically when a member on your team defeats a cog and disconnects around the same time. The game doesn't completely update, which leaves the cog entity still there, but there's no physical cog for you to defeat, hence, "invisible cog." This cog cannot be defeated by gags, SOSs, or even fires, meaning your only course of action is to disconnect.

    However, today, I discovered a way to defeat an invisible cog. The trick is to use simultaneous gags: one on an existing cog, one on the invisible cog.

    I was in a CFO earlier today, and someone created two invisible cogs. Having seen this before, I explained to my teammates what was happening (neither of whom had seen this before). They convinced me to try to defeat it, so I kept trying things. One of them hosed an existing cog, and I hosed an invisible cog. The invisible cog's squirt animation showed up, followed by the exploding animation. When we got to the next battle GUI, the invisible cog had been defeated. So I tried it again on the second invisible cog, but it didn't work. So I kept trying with different gags, each to no avail. Finally, we double safed (one on existing, one on invisible) and the second invisible cog was defeated.

    tl;dr use simultaneous gags (one on an existing cog, one on invisible cog) to defeat. Some gags may not work, so experiment with different gags. If the invisible cog is the only cog, you have to disconnect.

    Hope this helps out anyone who encounters this glitch!

    I've seen it happen with there being both visible and invisible cogs some time ago so it's not really new.

    it doesn't have to be the last cog. It can happen anywhere in the battle, but if you don't eliminate the cog before you run out of cogs, you're stuck with it and you have to disconnect. Also note that sound does not work for this; you must use a different gag track.

    This glitch can happen literally anytime in the battle, all it takes is someone to disconnect when a cog is exploding. if it's the last cog, sorry, you have to disconnect.
