Hogwarts Legacy players have found the worst way to use Avada Kedavra

Hogwarts Legacy players have found the worst way to use Avada Kedavra

Hogwarts Legacy players are realising you can use Avada Kedavra - the killing curse - on cats. Please don't.

Hogwarts Legacy has proved to be the most controversial game in recent memory. As I’m sure you’re now aware, many have chosen to boycott the title following author J.K. Rowling’s transphobic comments. Rowling was not directly involved in the creation of the game but will, of course, profit from its sales.

Some Hogwarts Legacy developers are choosing to boycott it too in solidarity with the trans community, while others have taken to review-bombing the title with plot spoilers. Those who have purchased Hogwarts Legacy are in the midst of experimenting with its array of spells. Devs previously teased that the game wouldn’t punish you for being evil, but some players have already taken it too far by using Wingardium Leviosa to launch cats off buildings. Now, they’re taking it one step further.

Tour the enchanting Hogsmeade village below.

As reported by GGRecon, Hogwarts Legacy players are now using Avada Kedavra to kill kitty cats. Please stop. Players will have the chance to learn the three Unforgivable Curses as they delve deeper into the game’s story but if you choose to use these spells, your decisions will be reflected in the world around you. YouTuber Mr Moose is the first to experiment on our poor feline friends.

The player performs Levioso, raising the cat into the air, before using Expelliarmus to fling it under a public bench where it seems to cease to exist. I’d like to declare that this makes me very sad. Leave the kitties alone. Anyway, many pointed out that you can seemingly use any spell on Hogwarts Legacy’s cats so … that means you could also use Avada Kedavra, but you shouldn’t. Again, please don’t.

If you do choose to learn Avada Kedavra - you don’t have to - proceed at your own peril. It’s a side quest that poses certain risks. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
