(.63 ContentPatch #1) Swim Bug, while holding M4 (resulting in game crash and stuck character)
Assigned, NormalPublic


This bug is pretty bad, especially when entering deep bodies of water.

When you enter the ocean, or a deep body of water requiring you to swim, while holding a gun (like the M4 as shown) you get this bug where your character starts freaking out, jittery, glitchy, as well with your M4 flying and glitching around your body.

This can also result in game crash, so yeah, video evidence shown below.

(By the way, reproducibility is always, but game crash, and character being jittery, glitchy, is random, M4 flying around body however is always reproducible)


Operating System
Windows 7
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Take your weapon to your hand (M4 in this case)
  2. Go into the ocean or deep body of ocean (somewhere where you swim)
  3. And the glitch/bug begins, once you start swimming

Hello xArmanR, and thank you for your report.
Could you please provide us with your crash logs?

  1. Go to this file location: "C:\Users<Name>\AppData\Local".
  2. There you should see a DayZ folder.
  3. Create a .zip or .rar file of that folder and post newly created zip/rar file here.

Thank you.

@DanielF Sorry for late response, but I no longer have the crash logs regarding this issue.
