Weapon in hands dupe
Closed, ResolvedPublic


If you have a weapon on your back and another weapon in your hands just logoff the server and rejoin it. You will find copy of your "in-hands" weapon on the ground at your feet. {F30351}


Legacy ID
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Take one weapon (for example, Mosin rifle).
  2. Take weapon you want to copy in your hands (for example, geared M4).
  3. Leave the server.
  4. Rejoin your server as soon as possible.
  5. You will find а copy (dupe) of your in-hands weapon on the ground nearby.
  6. PROFIT! :)

NB: Look at the screenshot! Don't try to pick weapon from the ground after rejoining. Instead scroll inventory down and drag'n'drop weapon you'll find there to your hands (you can see it in the right part of screenshot). Only after than you can manipulate weapon on the ground as you want (detach parts, take in hands etc).

Additional Information

Possibly crashes client, not sure (see issue "0009034: Game crash on server rejoin" for details). 100% reproducibility (tried on RU servers).

tried this it didn't Dupe it I just picked the weapon I dropped when I logged out back up.

Gunnersbane, look at the very end of your inventory BEFORE picking any items from the ground.

Oh, and I had an axe too. All weapon slots must be occupied.

Had the same issue yesterday... relogging some times leaves more weapons on the ground. Had 2 SKS on ground and 1 in my inventory on the right side. Not sure if picking up those SKS by other playes caused the server crash or restart since the server has random restarts.

Could it be that u can run faster while having the weapon on the right side of your inventory instead of in your hands?
