This becomes a breaking issue on any mission with finite resources. The team that dupes no longer has to worry about resource management.

Rarity of items is compromised by creating an infinite quantity

This is an important issue and affects gameplay in a major way.

We can't have a fair game with this issue!

This bug is being abused in a big way. Completely game-breaking.

Many people only get ArmA for the mods, you know this. Duping is a HUGE issue for the mods that are a GIANT source of your cash revenue. You owe it to them to fix this as it is not something they can do.

will only continue to recommend ARMA 3 when it gets fixed. Please duping is killing the mods!

Wow, I'm surprised this hasn't gotten a single note from a Dev in the entire 4 and a half months it's been open and being exploited!

Hello guys,
thank you for reporting this issue (and sorry that it took so long). It has been reproduced, assigned and we'll try to solve it by the next update.
Thank you.

should be fixed since DEV 125317 and will be distributed today(19.6.2014)

thanks BIS :)
