Hello. It happened to me twice already. The people I killed had two guns, one on the back and one in their hands. After I had killed them, I could access the gun on their back via the vicinity menu, but the weapon in hands is only visually represented on the model and still in the characters right hand. It is not to be found anywhere in the vicinity menu and even cutting up the body, did not make it drop to the ground. Please fix, I didn't get dat M4 I so deservingly hunted ;P

- Kill a player with one long firearm on their back and one in their hands
- Get near their body and check wether you can access their active weapon/gun in hands
This issue has been present since the introduction of the 2 independent shoulder slots.
Hello freerider3434 and thank you for the report.
We have tested the issue but so far we were unable to produce it in two player scenario, only when player suicides. In case you come across any other information you can provide, which could lead us to producing this issue, please let us know.
damn, that's unfortunate. I always shoot people in the head to confirm the kill, so they may have been unconscious. Have you tried that as well? Can't think of any other cause for the moment. Will update, once I have another approach!
I saw an instance of this happening in Survivor GameZ, and this person that TheRunningManZ killed, had an MP133 shotgun in their hands while climbing up a ladder with an IZH-18 and fire axe shouldered
TRMZ was unable to access the shotgun in hands.
To reproduce 100% possibly:
- Have someone climb a ladder with a gun in hands
- Kill them
- Try to get gun
- If that doesn't work equip the gearset stated above (firearm and melee weapon both shouldered)
This might be something to do with a system where your gun disappears in hands while performing an action (i,e; climbing ladders, repairing the guns with cleaning kits, while opening doors?)
or **maybe** even during weird ragdoll positions (like mid-jump, on a ladder, in weird prone positions like mid roll?)
have not tested though, so just stating possibilities.
@Geez Potentially RESOLVED as of 1.05.152380 [https://forums.dayz.com/topic/246107-stable-update-105/]
Fixed: An issue preventing players from picking up items dropped from a player that had died while swapping items
Haven't had the problem occurr since then. I will report here if I see it again, for now I think it can be marked as resolved.
