Crash to Desktop when attempting to pick up the same item in an ammo crate at the same time another player does.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When accessing an ammo crate's inventory, picking up some 6.5 mm STANAG magazines, apparently there was another player doing the exact same as I was.
It caused a CTD when I was dragging a magazine into my vest.
When I rejoined the server, the other player also reported that he had a CTD himself and said that he was picking up magazines from the same type as I was.
This could just be coincidence, but it did happen afterall.
