Cans cannot be opened by sharp tools
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Cans still cannot be opend by knifes, screw drivers etc. There is no such option. Tried to combine the items in different slots (pants, hoodie, backpack) and taking them in hand. Still doesn't work.

I tried all of the Options i found at the forum. Nothing worked, i'm starving although i have something to eat. Btw. my Knife is Pristine but doesn't work either.

Same deal, I've tried all the tools at various levels including pristine since the patch, even pliers. Icon stays red when dragging over cans. Multiple servers, relogging, restarting, steam verify, same client/server version.

I'm assuming in the inventory a green box means an object can be placed, red it can't and teal means you can combine/attach it with selected item. When I hover the tin of tuna or beans over the bayonet in the inventory it shows teal as if it can be combined? However no options become available and it stays sealed.

Got about the same issue, tried those tools, plier, shovel, pipe wrench, hammer, duct tape, haven't had a sharp tool to try with :( IMMMM staaaaarving !

should be orange to open

When you drag the items over each other they simply switch places, but you definitely can't combine them.

Have tried screwdriver and kitchen knife, neither worked.

Same here, nothing seems to work on opening the cans

Should be implemented. Maybe with degradation of the knife and a small loss of food in the opened can (because of the mess you produce by opening it ;) ).

Cannot open with any sharp object, tried various ways. All objects have maximum durability

same here, thought this was going to be fixed with the latest patch?

Tried pliers and didn't work.

Can confirm. Screwdriver did not work. Tried putting the item on the floor, in hands, in backpack, in shirts and pants, respectively. Right-click on each item gave no option, and dragging them onto each other did not work either regardless of the position.

bajonnet is still not working with build 113822

Works fine for screwdrivers for me. Haven't tried anything else yet

Screwdrivers and bayonet now confirmed working.

NikoGT added a subscriber: NikoGT.May 8 2016, 2:27 PM

They work fine for me and everyone in my group. 4 different people confirm this works.

Issue has been solved in one of the updates.
