So I was hosting a session and one of my friends joined me, when we completed a side quest to get a new weapon, I picked the rifle up and got it, but he for some reason didn’t. It was not in his inventory, but the weapon disappeared from the ground, as if he picked it up, we restarted the game and went back in but it’s still the same. If this continues it would be useless to play as coop, since he can’t pick up any guns. Anyone any ideas?
Haven’t played multiplayer in this game for years but I believe the mission stuff only works for the host. So if you both have the same mission available to both of you in your own worlds, then when you complete it in the hosts world it only completes it in his, not the other persons. So the rewards for the mission are probably the same; only the host gets it.
On a side note it means you can do all of the missions twice. His and yours.
I think that’s how it works
Mission weapons, as far as I know unless the dev changed it, only go to the player that picked it up. So if a guest picks it up and that completes the mission then there is no weapon for the host. Or if the host picks up the weapon there is not another for guests.
