First time dev, 2D collision glitch

Hi everybody,

I’ll cut right to the chase. I’m working on a 2d sidescroller for my college class and I hit a weird snag. Here is the youtube video I sent my professor detailing the issue(He hasn’t responded yet, and I’m running out of time):

I’ve tried constraining all entities on the y coordinate plane, making the actors and player non-destructible(I thought maybe the player capsule was being destroyed on impact), adjusting the shape of the collision box, and praying to my chosen deity. Please help?
