Game mode: Online
I have a rented server, was running well. Died and was no longer able to use my weapons or tools. I can equip them, but R1, R2 and L2 do not seem to do anything.
- Tried dying
- Tried clearing hot bar
- Tried removing bracelet
- Tried exit game and log in.
- Tried exit game, shut down game, start game, join server
- Tried steps 2 then 3 above
- Tried steps 2 then 4 above
- Tried steps 2 then 5 above
- Tried switching to admin mode.
Had another player state that they ran into the same problem, died of food poisoning and suddenly they were fixed.
I can not reproduce this issue as the issue is not resolving in any way.
Damn, I was hoping this issue got fixed.
Try this for a workaround:
- Unequip everything from your hotbar.
- Add a consumable (food, potion, etc) to your hotbar.
- Add a weapon to a slot in your hotbar other than 1(down), 2 (down-left), or 3 (left).
- Wield and swing your weapon
- If it worked, reload hotbar and avoid using 1,2, or 3 for tools or weapons for the time being.
Thanks Ran-san, I’ll give it a try when I get a chance to get back on!
No good. I have a the game and am losing money on a 20 slot server with no way to play because I cant use harvesting tools or weapons.
Server restart didn’t help. No amount of switching things around or equipping-unequipping weapons.
The only fix was to recreate my character and start over.
New character is just fine.
I know this doesn’t help you now, but if it happens again remove your shield and store it in a box or bench. You’ll find that you probably could have used a two handed weapon but not single handed weapons with shield.
If that doesn’t work then swap all weapons with food. Then swap a weapon for food, you will then be able to hotkey all weapons again.
Reading these instructions make me sad
