Whenever I drop an item on the ground, by dragging it from my inventory into the vicinity, it vanishes completely from view in the world and in the UI for about a minute or two and then it reappears where it was dropped. This happened to me inside and outside in various locations.

Drag an item from anywhere in your inventory on to the floor.
It appears to be falling through the floor. If I drop an item from the first floor of a building, it will appear floating in the air on the ground floor. Then sometime later it pops back up. I think I had a similar thing happen when I dragged something from the vicinity and immediately put it back in the vicinity, but I'm not sure if this was the same deal.
Happened twice last night, with a first aid kit and a protector case, moving away from the area and back again brought the items back both times.
Locations where the store in stary sobor and the military building far north of the NWAF.
happens to me too.
Just to let you know, instead of dropping medikit/ammo box etc on the ground, just put it in your hands and you will be able to take anything inside without put it on the ground.
I'm finding it really hard to put things in people's back packs, the symbol isn't coming up an would make trading so much easier.
I've noticed fruit and Soda Pop drinks spawn instantly when you drop them but everything else takes about 10-12 seconds to appear on the floor.
I found that if I was putting the ammo or first aid boxes on the floor it would take 20 seconds to appear each time, seems consistent. I put them into hands now as it's faster, though you can only see the first 6 slots.
This is due to the server desyncing itself, not so much the individual player desyncing. This mostly happens on lower-end servers that cannot properly keep up and process data with the number of players on at the moment, or which have been running for too long without a restart.
This is something that has existed since the mod on Arma 2. It isn't so much a bug as it is just unoptimized servers.
Happens to me too, but I guess there is a connection between the quality of the item and the time it takes to appear. I drop my prestine case -> it instant appears on the ground. I drop a badly damaged one -> it takes about 30 sec. to appear on the ground.
Sometimes it will never appear. I got my cooking pot, gas stove and gas canister bugged once when I put them on the ground floor inside a 2-stories high orange house, and can never find them.
Confirmed. Does seem to happen randomly, doesn't matter if i'm playing on a high population or low population server. Happens inside buildings but also outside on the ground. When i'm on the first floor of a building, I can see it just below the ceiling on the ground floor. After some time(1-2 minutes) the item reappears above the ceiling/ground.
I had this happen last night in a jail building. Placed a ammo box on the floor between the upstairs bunks. It "disappeared". I went down to the ground floor and the ammo box was there. I have also had items disappear on the ground floor of barns.
