Try reducing graphics options. This glitch is usually caused by computers who cannot handle the water refractions. If that does not work, turn off shaders.

Hope this helps!

Happens on my father's laptop too! Yeah, just put everything down, it was shaders that probably caused this problem.

Next time build a desktop, laptops and pre-made desktops are highly overpriced (I look at you, ultrabooks). 8)

Make sure to have at least 8 GB RAM if you expect to record or play RAM hogging games like Xonotic :)

This glitch isn't a fault if the game itself true and can be worked around by turning shaders off. I had this problem in 64 bit mode. I actually fixed it myself by uninstalling the video drivers and letting windows find the right ones after restart. Maybe that will bring shader function back for you. Even though you are on a laptop. Problems can range from crashing to your issue and also to the ground disappearing. A good way to check is to look at water from many angles and see if it looks strange or glitchy.
