The mystery of the dysfunctional trap mines

    Hi!

    I'll better start off with a little disclaimer: I'm fairly new to the game and don't know that much about it, but I couldn't find the answer to this anywhere so I figured, why not ask?

    I've found that in some servers, my trap mines doesn't work. Instead of planting one of those delicious trap mines, I get thrown into some sort of first person limbo, where I can't find my gun, sword or pistol. The only way out of this limbo is to swap to third person then back again to first, and after this, my avatar doesn't even react when I try to plant mines. If I however switch to nades they work just fine. Other people in the server are using trap mines. 

    Is it a bug? Is it my crappy laptop that causes this? 

    Anyway, I just wanted to see if anyone else have experienced this issue. 

    Thank you for reading

    Regards

    SlimDickens

    Does it happen all the time or sometimes?

    Hi Max!

    It doesn't happen all the time, just occasionally.

    This also happened to me. Where you drop a mine, it doesn’t appear, and you cannot use your weapons, as it shows nothing in your hands. Which leaves you defenseless.

    This is quite and old bug, it'll be fixed once I find a solution.
    By the way, when this bug happens, does the mine amount subtract or remains the same?

    YES, exactly. Nice to see that I'm not the only one!

    Ah okay, so it is a bug then. Thank you for the reply, I'm satisfied with the answer.
