Seeking a way to fix a Shield bug?

Game mode: [Online | Singleplayer]
Problem: [Crash | Bug | Performance | Misc]
Region: [Here]

I have placed my shield on to my hot bar. When I press the corresponding number for the shield, the off hand arm moves, trying to equip the shield. Then relaxes, and does not equip the shield at all. Is there a way to fix this glitch?

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

server online, singleplayer ?
which shield ?

But seems be a variant of the “can not equipe tools and weapon bug” plaging lot of people at the moment.

There several treads about similar problems around.

Some workaround at the moment are:

  • play any ermote, then draw your weapons, tools, or here shield
  • hit twice the space bar
  • equipe a double-handed weapon

mostly one of these solutions works for people.

Good luck !

It is an online game, and does it with any shield.

I will try these ideas, and see if they help. Thank you so very much for your time.
