instant blackscreen and "you are dead" message without any visible/ hearable players, zombies around while eating tuna
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I was kneeing in the office/ school building (first floor, the room with the open window/ hatch to the corridor) in Elektro and eating Tuna to open a slot in my inventory. Have taken 3 portions, when eating last portion my screen turns black and says "you are dead".

No hearable grunting, no hearable steps, no hearable shot, no hearable swinging of a melee weapon, no unconsciousness before death. I was in 3rd person view, no visible enemy of any kind next to me.

Was on low pop server with just 2 or 3 other players online.

I was well hydrated, not hungry, didnt't have any other status of poor health like bleeding, etc.

Maybe item-bug or issued to "sound"

I attempted to Re-construct the event and nothing happened besides my Hunger/Thirst Level going down. Will attempt in a more similar situation or with a more dense population.

As far as I know there is a bug that sometimes gunshots are not hearable.
I'm 99% sure there was no other player around as I did not hear any footsteps or any other sound and there just was 2-3 other players on the server (I've checked before entering Elektro and 2 times while in the city just to be prepared).
Only explanation (other than: tuna killed me) could be someone spawned behind me outside my field of view, gave me a headshot but the shot itself was not hearable.

/edit: I'm still pretty new to the game so I'm not sure if a headshot leads to instant death or puts you in unconsciousness state before.

See issue #5169, sounds like a similar issue.

tks @ Richa678 how does this work here? Do I post my issue into the other thread so everything gets collected at one place?

/edit: posted to the other thread as that one seem to have more attention already.
