Unconscious bug, solution to get out of it (exploit)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


So you find yourself unconscious, well if you are with a friend you are in luck. Have your friend shoot you in the head killing you. Next do not click "Respawn" but instead click "Exit". Once at the main menu or server selection screen select a different server (any server other than the one you and your friend were on) when you spawn into the new server you will be at the location you were at when you were unconscious but you won't be unconscious and you will still have all your gear. Now simply leave the new server you connected to and go back to the original one your friend was in. You'll be alive and right where you left off no longer unconscious.

(This also works if you are killed by random events. (PVP or PVE))

Not working

This does still work I just tried it. If you click respawn then it doesn't work. When you are unconscious your friend has to kill you then exit the server completely. Join a new one, then you are fine and can rejoin your previous. 5 others all just tried it and it worked for them too. You may be doing something wrong

So the solution is to lie there and wait for my character to die... Not a great solution.

No the solution is to have a friend kill you, exit the server (do not click respawn) and join a new one, then leave that server and join the one you originally went unconscious in. When you do that you are no longer unconscious and have all your gear. It's like it never happened.

Nowhere in there did I say "Lay there and wait to die". Reading comprehension is important. Seriously did you even read it? What does step 2 say? "Have a partner kill you". Maybe you need to re-read it.

Hit Esc and click Respawn, problem solved.

Thats the solution if you want to start al over againas a fresh spawn. I'm talkingkeeping everything.

Working for me, however this exploit probably isn't bound to being unconscious and is going to get exploited big time. You will kill someone, the will use the exploit and spawn in again.

This is probably bigger than the actual unconscious bug.

Well... that is not a solution... it is an exploit and should be fixed asap aswell ^^

Please fix it asap! Had a fight today and after the other guy died he disappeard. Half a minute later he logged back in alive with all his stuff!

Last night some friends I was with killed the same guy roughly 4-5 times due to him using the exploit. This is definitely an issue with PVP as you can never truly "die".

I believe it is fixed now?

Yes, as long as you click on exit instead of respawn, you are able to simply log in again even after being shot dead. Will have to verify on latest build though.

Your items might be ruined but there's was nothing preventing me from logging right back in and killing the person who just shot me (I ran away instead, then respawned in the forest). Very exploitable.

Still works on latest build.

Well should be fixed with 0.30 right?

As of revision 0.30.113860, you will now die when leaving the server in unconscious state.

"Design: players who disconnect when unconscious will die"

well, i died, waited 20 minutes, reconnected and i was alive with all my gear at the same spot...
