SKS + LRS glitch?

13 posts in this topic

So, i found a worn long range scope, and was just thinking maybe i could use it on the SKS i had (with a PU scope on it). I dragged the scope to the rifle spot, above the PU and it showed light blue, like it could be used. Dropped it, then Poof, the LRS vanished while the PU went into my inventory where the LRS was... And no, it didnt drop around me.. ANyone else experience this?

Pretty sure rocket said on Reddit that it wasn't able to be used to to some clipping issues.

Yep. Patch notes state that the LRS is no longer usable on the SKS. Not sure why it would disappear though.

Oh? Thats good news then, since it won't make the SKS something it's not.

You would be unable to load bullets into the SKS with a LRS attached.

What is said above and Blue usually means you can swap it, not add it to a weapon. I suggest taking the PU off first when testing, if it is red when you make the scope hover over the weapon then it wont work.

Spawns in Military and Civilain buildings.. Found em in boths areas.  

 

SKS is all I'm going to use for awhile.. Was in my first real firefight with it tonight since the Stable release.  Love it!

Personally i carry the three that i like (In this life so far). Sawn off shotty for when you need to get up close and personal, hit T when you really don't like the person you are aiming at (found a sh*t ton of snap loaders but i'm almost out of individual rounds). Magnum for zombies and general ammo shortages (Couple of speedloaders and more ammo than i've even had before on this life). SKS for the rifle stuff like dealing with guys with M4s when they decide to not spray and pray and firefights in openish areas(never had more than 50Rds including what was loaded) but i need to find some stripper clips for this cause when it goes dry i'm either running around trying to load it in the inventory or pulling the Magnum/Sawn Off.

 

The others just don;t fit my style. I'm not a sniper and i'm not the type to spray a 3rd burst at everything that moves. I try to play like "Dirty" Harry, one shot should kill, follow up shots are for when you really need to know how alive they are or are used as a part of some sort of intimidation.

    • Cant even play .60 (Cant join servers)
      By kerbs
      Guys i've posted something on the reddit but i was instantly met with hate as it wasnt the place to put it... 
      I switch over to .60 i see the experimental servers (Heaps of slots in them) and i attempt to join them and it goes into the load menu then stops goes back into main menu and displays no error message. 
      I've tried everything i can possibly think of to try and get it working. Setting launch parameters to join a server directly. Re-installing game, switching back to stable then back to experimental. Verifying game caches. 
      Im actually angry because i see everyones really enjoying the experimental and high FPS! I've been playing dayz since the mod first game out! Day 1!!! So this game means alot to me!
      So if anyones got any ideas, please feel free to share!
       
      <3 love you all. 
    • Textures glitch as I travel
      By Zkay36
      So, I have this issue, that as I start to travel further and futhern the textures start to glitch and start to look crappy and crappy until some of them don't load at all. I played for about an hour and the game ended up looking like this:


      Note for the image above: Those long sticks are supposed to be trees
       

      I'm running the game on this machine:
      My Nvidia drivers are up to date, and my temps are okay while playing, with the CPU at 40ºC and the GPU at about 50/53ºC so I don't think that's a problem.
       
      This are my in-game settings, just in case:

      Thanks!
