Character teleported back to coast spawn when running for roughly 5 minutes.
New, WishlistPublic


80% Of the time now when I get a new character on the coast I try to run somewhere for 5 minutes keeping my macro key for autowalk on (doesn't seem to affect it because it happens without this key aswell) and my character gets teleported back to where I first spawned and locked into place.

All controls freeze up, can't move. Can't even use escape to exit the game. Forced to Alt+F4.

Steps To Reproduce

Seems to happen only with newly spawned characters. Don't pick anything up, just run anywhere for 5-10 minutes and you will be teleported back to spawn and locked in place.

I had this happen to me once. But not as fresh spawn. I was running in the woods somewhere north section of chenarus and I got teleported back to a previous location and couldn't do nothing. I had to ctrl+alt+del to end dayz process.

I do not use autokey, macro, etc. I was just holding [w] key.

update: Since being killed and starting as fresh spawn. It has been teleporting back to a previous location after running for few minutes, unable to control character or bring up menu, on three different servers.

Same thing happens to me, just holding down W for a long time, usually happens when I run from Zelenogorsk to the northern military base.

I can confirm this as well. And running methods haven't affected the outcome for me.

It seems to happen in the north now too. It is quite random when it happens.

It has happened to me and to my teammate at the same moment. We were in different locations (Stary Sobor, Kozlovka).
This also happens while not running, but some time after a long run.
Most of the time when it happens when I arrive to Stary Sobor.

The remedy is to Alt+F4 and restart a game.
