Check out issue 2729 and give feedback and vote if it's the same issue.
Check issue 2729, it's a similar report, hopefully getting more votes will get it noticed quicker.
The desync issue is random as I and many others are experiencing it as well, I don't know about forcing yourself into desyncing but for me, even with a stable connection it just happens.
For a person experiencing desync, other players that were running will continue running through everything and those that are stopped will remain where they are, you're unable to make gestures and pickup or interact with a lot of things. It's just as big of a pain in the ass to be experiencing it.
See issue 2729 and vote up to help get more attention.

I and a few non-local friends are getting this problem too.
The desync issues last a while and seem to happen whenever I'm entering a new lootable area. Nothing registers properly, although I can freely roam, my buddies run through everything, changing items, interacting with items and performing gestures is not possible until eventually the issue disappears after several seconds to a few minutes later, and I get a desync chain then everything works fine again until I come across more areas.
It can be game breaking as I've been killed several times by people or zombies I couldn't see or I killed people blankly running through everything in front of me. Even sometimes, I get injured and I'm unable to heal myself and just die. It gets very frustrating.
I'm getting the idea that it's probably from retrieving info for stuff within my network bubble (assuming that's how it works) and the larger exchange of data is affecting communication between the server and client.
My internet speed test from the Philippines to the West Coast US(Servers I usually play on):
Ping - 198ms
DL - 1.87 Mbit/s (~ 250 kbyte/s)
UL - .70 Mbit/s (~ 90 Kbyte/s)
This issue also happens on closer low-ping servers from Singapore and Hong Kong.
I also have other close friends here that will also be getting DayZ, I'll do tests with them and report them here.
Before anybody tells me I should switch internet or that my connection's the issue, this is close to the best connection I can get around here, and I can play lots other games online perfectly fine.(DayZ Mod, BF2/3, CoD, dota 2).
Just to add, the desync may sometimes happen at random and will happen regardless of server distance and/or ping, or client connection. A buddy from the US just experienced this even with a ping of 20 while I with a higher ping of 220 didn't experience the issue at all. I could see him move around on my screen just fine, while he couldn't interact in the world or see anyone moving at all. The desync lasted a good few minutes and he also has a better PC and connection than I do.
Getting a similar issue accompanied by inability to perform actions, switch weapons and gestures.
Check out 0002729 and upvote if it's the same issue.
Happened to me today, got killed the moment i spawned, no bullets, no indication of attack, respawned in Novy.
Can confirm, is fairly similar to the same issue in ArmA2, at which point sometimes some clients get kicked and receive a battleye responding kind of error.
Similar to 0002729, just sharing to give more attention to the issue.
Will also confirm for a friend.
He was with me in the northern Elektro firestation and his game crashed, I watched his body make weird movements in his place while he was gone, he rejoined but was relocated about 200m up a hill to the west of the firestation.
Windows 7 64-bit
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 2.5Ghz
Nvidia GTX460SE 2GB
4Gb Corsair DDR3 RAM
Set from high to normal graphical settings, regardless of change, performance remains the same.
I get <20 fps inside cities, although usually now <10.
30 in wilderness but never near 50-60. My performance in the wilderness on ArmA 2 Chernarus and DayZ mod was way better than this even at 5km VD and higher settings.
The fps is so bad that if I didn't have such a love for DayZ, I would've quit by now.
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 2.5ghz
4GB DDR3 RAM
Nvidia GTX460 SE @ 1680 x 1050
WD 500gb HDD 7200
<20 fps in cities.
30 or higher fps outside or when not looking towards towns and buildings
Settings are normal, used to be high, either way I get the same performance inside cities.
RAM and CPU stable, doesn't even use up full 4gb of ram even.
Another thing, not sure if it's useful, but i'll say it anyway.
Had "Out of Memory" errors with a friend while near cities, increased HDD pagefile size and stopped errors.
