Bodies disappear after the player has been killed
Assigned, NormalPublic

Description

It's self explanatory. Whether you kill the player with a melee or a long ranged gun gives the same results.

The bug occurres every eight out of 10 kills (8/10 times) which is about 70-80%. of all the kills that I've made over the past couple of days.

If I hit the player and he is unconscious, his body is still visible. The second after he dies his body disappears and cant be found using the Z (lie down) and TAB technique to search for his items.

Also if a player dies in a house, his body is visible but you can't loot it with "TAB". The only possible interaction with the body is "Check pulse"
If he dies near stairs on the second floor of a house, you can go downstairs and spam "tab" and occasionally his items will appear 1-2 meters below his body.
Most of the times, even in house the body disappears.

Hello BugReporter00 and thank you for the report.
Were the corpses which disappeared manipulated with prior to death? For example, were the characters unconscious and have you opened their inventory prior to their death and disappearance?

No, the bodies disappear before I interact with them.
You can't check their pulse, neither can you open their inventory.

Update 2

Just killed 2 guys, whose bodies disappeared the way described but I could access their inventory and loot them.
It was very tricky since I had to remember the exact position they died with pinpoint accuracy (1, 1-5 cm of the screen monitor)

For that case I specifically dropped an item above the place I killed them so i could remember.

Definitely! I'll need a couple of hours to get the kills!

I happened to capture a video of a similar incident today. Sorry about the darkness, I had to Alt+F10 shadow play to capture it.

My first few shots were firing at the guy while he was laying next to a Lada, then I ran down and got him as he ran around the caravan, but the body disappeared.

Sorry if vid is a bit dark (shadowplay bug wink wink).
Notice how the boonie hat takes a hit like a ballistic helmet (or maybe it was the axe I hit), all the zeds aggro'd on me while shooting a silenced mp5 too.
Then the body dissapears. Sometimes I can loot them sometimes I cannot because they dont appear in vicinity.

Hello cs_wolf.
Currently we are aware of an issue, where the player corpses disappear in specific spots on the map and their corpses are visible in the vicinity still. There is also a known issue with the corpse disappearing once player manipulates with its inventory. The method with players using alt + f4 to make their corpses disappear should be fixed. Can you please create a separate ticket in case you find any information on what triggers the issue where the corpse disappears but its inventory is not present in vicinity and you have not manipulated with its inventory? As there may be occurrence we are not aware of, meanwhile we will test the issue internally as well.

Geez
