Two ways to dupe items.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


There are two ways to dupe items working right now that I know of, one of which allows for duping a main weapon and the second one - your whole equipment.

The first one is basically done like that - you take one weapon on your back and the second one in your hands, then you log out. A copy of the weapon you hold in your hands is dropped on the ground, however it also stays in your inventory when you log into the game again.

The second one is a bit more complicated. When a person logs out, it takes some time before his/her character actually disappears. During this time you can handcuff them, allowing for his/her inventory to be accessed by other players, who can then take whatever from their inventory they want. If the player is unhandcuffed before his/her character disappears (30 seconds since disconnecting), when they log back in all their items are still in their inventory. This allows for duping of players' entire inventory.

I think that both of these bugs should be fixed ASAP, as they affect the gameplay a lot.

Way 1.

  1. Put your weapon on your back.
  2. Take a second weapon into your hands.
  3. Log out.
  4. Log back into the server.
  5. The weapon is both in your hands an on the ground.

Way 2.

  1. One player logs out of the server.
  2. Just after he disconnects, another player handcuffs the character which will disappear in 30 seconds.
  3. Take items from the handcuffed player's inventory.
  4. Unhandcuff the character before it disappears.
  5. When the player logs back into the game, his/her inventory is untouched.

I had not heard of the second method. Interesting.

This has happened to me twice by accident -> it really ruins the game if this become well known. (Up Vote!)


thank you for the second way of duplicating gear. I can confirm that it does work and that we are working on fixing it.

Now I will close this in favour of the original bug.

Please refer to #8153 for further information on this issue.

Thank you!
