Attachments on weapons disappear when the weapon is placed into either your backpack or a storage container/vehicle. Attachments must first be removed from the weapon and stored individually. This bug was introduced with the most recent Stable update.
- Legacy ID
In a Multiplayer environment:
- Put any attachment on any weapon that supports attachments
- Place the weapon into a backpack or vehicle with sufficient capacity
Attachments are lost.
Yep serious issue for persistent missions. I don't see it in between logins or restarts, but I have to remember to remove all attachments before storing a weapon in backpack and logging out.
I was unable to reproduce it on Steam Stable. All weapons kept their attachments when put into backpacks/inventories. Could you please upload a simple repro mission and provide repro steps? It would help us a lot.
I play the Breaking Point mod a lot (http://www.thezombieinfection.com). This issue is extremely prevalent as the game play of the mod relies heavily on storing weapons in crates/backpacks. I do not always see this bug, it's more of a risk of losing the attachments if you place a weapon in a crate or backpack. I do not typically lose the attachments when said weapon goes into the crate, but when I pull it out. Also, if the server restarts with said weapon still in the crate or backpack you will lose the attachment(s).
I do not have a mission to reproduce this, but I'll see if I can get a video of this happening.
This isn't an actual inventory issue. This is about the ability to script-add weapons with (custom) attachments into containers.
These people were probably all playing mods that save player inventories.
