At the moment it is very hard to loot corpses. You must search for the weapon icon. There is just a very small hitbox where you can access the dead players inventory. Also most of the dead bodys dissappear. Maybe this is caused by disconnecting to fast.
- Legacy ID
- Kill a Player
- Try to loot him
I've experienced this as well. The most reliable hit box seems to be located right in the center of their butt. Dev joke? I think overall this creates an issue for gameplay when people are desiring to loot quickly and they are searching for the gear sign.
