View Full Version : Sometimes unable to use binoculars or drone after exiting a helicopter

Often occurs after getting hit by a SAM, doing a hard landing, and a few times when just landing safely, but I'm unable to deploy a drone or use binoculars.

It's not an issue with the D-Pad as I can equip/unequip a silencer or use an underbarrel grenade launcher. I can't remember if this also happens after exiting ground vehicles but have definitely noticed it with choppers.

I can confirm this. Happened to me several times after exiting a chopper.

Happend for me aswell. But on a random basis. Can't remember if it has sth to do with helicopters, but this is a problem, yes.

Yep this exact thing has happened to me as well, not able to use my drone or binoculars usually after getting shot down in a helo.

Thank you for the feedback I will pass this forward if you have not confirmed already when this issue occurred you were always just exiting the helicopter and did Fast travel fixed this issue?

It's when exiting helicopters and yes, fast travelling always fixes it. Also note a similar bug with the mounted minigun reticle, it vanishes often and requires you to exit the gunnery seat and reenter.

Thank god it's fixed by fast travel. Which it is by the way.

I also had this working again after changing weapons/scoping, just an FYI.
