[PRIMARY REPORT]: Character is seen stuck in equip animation loop by others
Acknowledged, WishlistPublic


If you run and change your "in hand" item with something in your hotbar, you will loop through the switching animation, until you start another animation such as crouching or switching item while standing still. Can NOT be seen by yourself in third nor first person, but only by others.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Start running
  2. While running change your "in hand" item with something from your hotbar

Have noticed this issue and have been told be peers when i myself have been stuck in it.

theory: related to 'desync' between two individual clients when an item switch occurs.

It seems to stop whenever you switch to another item, but with varying degrees of reliability sometimes multiple switches are required before the peer stops witnessing it.

It is often only one other person that can see it. Rather than a number of people

Source: several occurences in 5-6 man squad between varying members.

Confirmed. This looping bug happens very frequently.
In 4 man squad often seen by 1 person, but rarely by 2.
Person(s) who are doing/seeing it varies.

Happens with after using compass. Just found this.

Happened with my friend a couple days back. I made him relog because it bugged me so much and seemed to fix it.

Yup is happening quite often and it is very irritating when you see somebody doing it.

I was able to replicate this. When presenting and object (using space bar), then switching straight to another item using the hotbar, it happened with me and my friend every time.
