Duping on Persistent Servers
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I was playing on a persistent server and dropped a vest at my camp before the restart and logged out. When i rejoined there was the vest on the ground with every item in it and another one on my character.


Legacy ID
Steps To Reproduce
  1. When the server message about the 5 min restart appears, drop an item on the gound(weapon and backpacks work best i think).
  2. When the server message about the 1 min restart appears, pick everything up and log out.
  3. Wait for the server to be back up and join.
  4. The dropped stuff is duped
Additional Information

I think i've heard the server gets reset 2 minutes when it restarts and it doesnt recognize the picked up items if you log out properly.

I had also an issue like this. I didn't know how to explain because I didn't know how it works exactly.

But your and my issue are exactly the same..

With the 2 Minutes I can also confirm.

I've noticed it works also with items from tents

My friends use this method of duping all the time.

They actually spend hours standing in place, duping items instead of actually playing the game.

I already posted this ages ago. Can't find the issue anymore. It's been around since persistence.
