Unable to quick drop items out of external containers
Closed, DuplicatePublic


Since the release of 1.17, Holding (X) no longer removes items from containers within a players vicinity.

For example: (Before 1.17) If I wanted to empty a crate/barrel/backpack/etc... that was placed/dropped on the ground, I would just hold (X) on each item in the container and they would drop to the vicinity. (After 1.17) This is no longer possible. The only way to move items from the container to the vicinity is to press (A) to bring the item to your hands, then hold (X) to drop out of your hands (OR) Hold (A) on the item, click the right or left triggers to navigate to the vicinity, then let go of the (A) button.

The example above also happens when cooking items in a house fireplace. You can no longer hold (X) to drop it from the cooking slot to the ground.

This bug makes it very difficult to manage loot/inventory especially when you need to things like tents and such.

Thank you and let me know if you need any additional info!

Steps To Reproduce
  • Join server "DayZ Livonia US - LA 8219 (1st Person Only)" FYI: (I think this happens regardless of what official server you join)
  • Find a backpack.
  • Put the backpack on the ground, ensure you can see the backpack and its contents in your vicinity.
  • Put items into the backpack, doesn't matter what it is.
  • Hold the (X) button on one of the items in the backpack.

Result: Nothing happens.

Video attached shows the same result when using a crate.

Strange this has been assigned after the last poster pointing this bug out was told it was actually a feature only a couple of days ago!
