@Rich_hard1 don't be silly. in real life you can stick bananas in chest holsters all day long if you wanted to, not being able to in the game is taking away from the realism and is totally game breaking.

anyway. this bug, sadly, has not been fixed in the latest patch. it could be that it's a pretty complicated bug and taking the devs longer to fix than one might expect. hopefully it'll be resolved in the next patch!

C'mon, if it was ment for realism, there wouldn't be any zombies, you would have to pee, poop and sleep.

And how can a bit of humour harm? I'd even say, humour can be good advertisement as long as it's rare, just like an easter egg.

Banana needs to be held as a gun too. I would like to hold people up with the banana. This is game breaking immersion for me. I always wanted to be the banana bandit, and I am refused such an opportunity!

See second screenshot for example!

Really, are you for real? This game is meant for realism not humour.

This is a critical bug.

Probably the most hillarious "bug" report, I've seen by far!

Thumbs up simply for this fact! XD

noticed this fix wasn't mentioned in the upcoming patch notes, hopefully they just forgot to mention it. :/

Agree, please prioritize. This is breaking immersion for me. Also, I want to use the peal after eating to set a trap for my opponents.

Rocket is so worried about the rotten kiwis that he has been blind to other fruits. Treating a banana as a gun is a much higher priority then anyone will admit. Hope they finally fix this and add the banana-phone animation. Why do we not get to keep the banana peel after? Talk about BS...

just tried to put a banana in the holster now that the new patch is going, still doesn't work :(

tdc added a comment.Jan 22 2014, 3:52 AM

i really hope this is fixed with this new version coming out on friday

this game is brokeN!

No. 1 bug right here! This is really killing the whole 'Realism' of DayZ for me. THIS HAS TO BE FIXED NOW!!!

i found a ton of chest holsters just laying about at the nw airfield, no one wants to use them! i'm pretty sure it's because you can't put a banana in them.

Beeing able to put a banana into a chest holder would make me wear it ! :)

I tried to fit my banana in my hands and aim it as a gun, didn't work. Big disappointment!

This should be fixed ASAP. One thing that can not be forgotten during game dev: fun. That sounds fun!

I was thinking. Really. All other clothing items have inventory slots. The holster is not a good inventory carrier, but I think it should have at least one inventory slot available. I mean, it is either the holster OR the pillow jacket and it is the holster OR the tactical vest. So, the holster has ZERO function in a low-inventory situation. It will be bypassed when gearing up.

i actually prefer the holster to a vest if i'm using a pistol. paired with the improvised backpack, it makes for a rather slimmed down profile vs a any other backpack and vest.
and i'm not really into the weird 3 spot biggie jacket.

i'm still hoping for a fix to this bug in one of the weekly updates, though.

There is a secret slot where the banana would probably fit in perfectly. But afaik they are not going to add support for it anytime soon :)

jumped in experimental last night to see if this had been addressed or not, still doesn't work.
i'm slowly learning to play around this bug, but it's been a hard time. wish they would fix it already.

Dual wielding bananas and weapon attachments. Need I say more?


we have been looking into this problem for a long while. It is proving to be a really problematic fix. We really want to make this look right and to make it look right we need to do proper motion capture and sound recordings.

This will take a lot of time and effort, but I trust that the day will come when we will be able to finally arm ourselves with the dangerous fruit.

But like I said, this will require a lot of effort from multiple departments.

Hang in there!

The day will come!

glad to hear it, Accolyte! this issue has been keeping the game down for way too long.

Pika added a comment.May 22 2014, 3:52 AM

You guys just made my day!

The problem is: holsters are designed to work with a single object type (pistols). This would require us to make the banana a pistol which has some other ramifications with simulation. Objects cannot have multiple simulation types, i.e. they cannot be a food and a pistol.

I see this issue has been reassigned! I hope you have good news for us, Andy!

Aww c'mon. That blink will make everyone so excited that now, the dev team will HAVE TO provide this "feature". ^_^

Deadline: 1 April 2015 ;)

I hope that wink means it's in the .50 they're pushing today. Probably why they had to delay it: banana related bugs.

tdc added a comment.Nov 6 2014, 3:08 AM

Oh man, I HATE fruit flies

so is this still addressed?

I really hope they also fix the old bananaphone - issue. I still cannot put a battery in a banana, tried exp and regular. Also changing frequency is not possible.

livin' the dream .... ring ring ring bananaphone !

4.1.2015 is closing in, let's all get exited

Before everyone gets overexited, let's all just keep in mind that 1 April 2015 is NO DEADLINE or anything else by any means!

So when "April fool's day" passes and nothing happended regarding this issue, don't be disappointed. There's many many much more important issues than this "easter egg".

no it's real

"There will be more experimentals over the next few days. The target for stable is 25th. With a small chance of being pushed to 1st if we dont get the last critical bugs fixed."

he can only mean this issue with "critical bugs"

tdc added a comment.Mar 19 2015, 3:23 PM

This is the most critical bug in the game right now, I have full confidence the devs will finally be taking care of it.

This is just to funny to hear about!
