Opening a can in backpack will move the can to the first available non-backpack slot
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Not sure if this is by design or not:

If you open a can that is in your backpack and you have an open slot in your jeans or tac vest, the can will be moved to one of those slots.

I can confirm, but is this intended behaviour?

That's how the inventory system works. Not really a bug. Only time an object isn't added to the first available slot is when manually placed with the mouse drag system.

Whether it is a bug or not, this can be quite annoying. I like to organize my inventory and when things get moved around it bothers me.
