Hello Slivo and thank you for the report.
The corpses should stay in place for at least three minutes, do you remember if in the situations where you experienced the issue with the corpse disappearing too suddenly the corpse has been on the ground for three minutes or was it shorter amount of time?

Geez, are you able to provide wherein the files to change the setting for corpses despawning ?

I am wanting to increase the time but have yet to find the variable setting.

I do think the corpse have stayed in place for three minutes, but that's far from enough to secure a dangerous area and handle possible additionals enemies !

Hello everyone.
We have found an issue with the corpse despawn timer being set incorrectly at the moment and we are working on fixing the issue internally.

Has the fix been deployed to stable ?
I had the corpse of a friend killed not far away from me despawn by the time I run to it few days ago.

He was at the top of one chapaevsk tower close to balota airstrip and I was at the limit of the forest and the airstrip south west of it's position.

Happened again today.

Fought two guys at staroye military camp. I shot the first and by the time I killed the other one, first corpse was gone. It took about 5 minutes to get the second kill and get back to the first corpse
