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.

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.

I've only found it in Civ spawns, but i haven't been to an airfield since the update.

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.

      Many SKS models were able to receive a slight modification to either the gun or a separate 30 round magazine. This modification would allow a normaly internally chambered SKS, the possibility of receiving an external magazine. DayZ could easily allow a rare spawn of a "SKS Conversion Kit." This kit could be applied to an SKS to allow akm 30 round magazines to be used and added. Thus giving a SKS, more modification ability as well as making the SKS a more viable gun in close range situations. This suggestion is realistic for the model of the SKS in game, as the in-game model appears to be a similar to many models with existing conversions. The addition of this kit and and the 30 round mag would still make the SKS a semi auto rifle. Using an already implemented mag that uses the same ammunition would be beneficial versus adding a separate SKS magazine that would be near identical.

      So Barrels disappear after 8 days in .60 as of now if they are not reset.
      How long do Military Tents take to disappear as of now  if they are not used?
      Any information would be appreciated.

      Please don't tell this hack to anyone, since it can teleport you to the northwest airfield.
