jmatya - Steam - Items freeze in air if picked up when backpack is full

Recommended Posts


Items stay floating when backpack is full, item is mid air and "Use" key is hit


Make your backpack full, pick up an item (that can be put in your backpack) and hit "E" (Use). You will get the "Backpack full" message and the item will stay at it's last position until picked up again. It comes handy when you don't have enough storage at the beginning of the gameplay as you can simply freeze items where you want them, but it still is a bug and should be fixed ?

OTOH, you can make some nice Astroneer-Art with it...

This has been happening to me since I started playing the game months ago. I never looked at it as a bug, but perhaps it is. I am also a Steam/W10 PC user.
