This is a collection of tickets that regard the same issue (afaik):
#6123 #5524 #3977 #6893 #1195 #2543 (marked as resolved) #2344 #3331 #6995
The issue is present in the latest DEV version (27.05.2013) and has occurred since day one of the public alpha.
It seems to be mostly in the Wasteland mission (various versions of it) but is not restricted to it.
Some people mentioned that this is a locality issue, vehicles being created server side and then filled with weapons and equipment. Maybe someone with actual mission making experience can add his opinion here.
As reported in the other tickets there are several workarounds:
- Get in as driver of the vehicle in question, get out and pick up the weapon
- Drag the weapon to the "ground" tab and pick it up from there
- Drag the weapon to the backpack and equip from there
I believe many of the above mentioned tickets can be closed as duplicates while the issue should be looked at again.
