Reloading with Y does not work for magazine-fed guns after you log out and log in with that gun in your hand
Acknowledged, UrgentPublic


When you log out and back in with a gun in your hand, the magazine reload animation will not occur when drawing your weapon and holding the reload button (Y).

One work around is to drop the weapon on the ground and pick it up into your hands, or, you can manually drop the magazine and reload through the inventory. After this the weapon will reload via the reload button normally.

This seems to all military weapons with detachable magazines, I suspect it applies to all magazine fed weapons. I have not tested on Sporter, SG5K, Scorpion, the magazine pistols or Pioneer though since I never use these.


Operating System
Windows 7
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Leave the server with a magazine-fed weapon in your hands (on Xbox)
  2. Rejoin the same server
  3. Attempt to reload the weapon in your hands with the reload button

    Have confirmed this glitch applies to M4, LAR, KAM and KA74. I have not tried with other magazine fed weapons. Tested on DayZ Xbox official servers with Series X.
