Sometimes after changing in or out of combat stance, checking gear and starting running you can't stop from running or control your character and his actions by any means.
- Legacy ID
Repro steps by Psychobastard, copied from report #0004374:
- lower your primary weapon
- start to go (press "w")
- switch during your run/walk to optical sight (press RMB)
- switch back to normal sight (press again RMB)
- release all keys
The relation between the bug and actions told before are unclear except for the fact that is has to do something with changing into and out of combat stance.
Happened to me a couple of times in multiplayer.
From Psychobastard's report (#0004374): The problem only occurs if you had the primary weapon in your hands. All work fine with handgun or secondary weapon.
This seems to happen to me when I lower my weapon(2x ctrl for me). The only way I can stop it is by switching my gun to pistol however as soon as I switch it just switches back and I stop moving.
To stop it, just upholsterer your pistol. At the time I was trying to do the 'crab walk' from ARMA II. When you crouch, lower your gun and look down in third person and I stood back up and it started running, all I could do was control direction.
It's happened to me too, a loss of player control with continuous movement. One can recreate it by lowering a rifle (2x LCtrl) and then by attempting to view through its scope while running. Changing to a pistol stops it.
I can recreate this.
1.double tap control to lower your weapon.
- push right mouse button as if to zoom in on your gun.
- you will now be auto-walking.
the only way i've found to break it is by pushing "V", or vaulting.
