Stuck in the floor or under a house – HELP HERE

Submitted by Rosco (Roxx)

So this has happened to me a couple of times since playing the DayZ Standalone now. Once in awhile, I will fall through the floor of a house and become unable to escape. Everything below the house goes see-through and it makes the game look very strange. To other players, it looks like you are standing on the floor normally.

I have managed to escape this glitch TWICE now. What you need to do it, stand in the very corner of the house and vault/jump through he wall AND log-out. You need to make sure you log-out while your character is in the air. It can take a few tries, but it does work!

Hopefully this helps a few others who have also been stuck in the floor.

    I’ve also been able to escape by going to the stairs and standing up/ climbing up to them.

  2. I find if you connect to the server and hit sprint as soon as you spawn gets you out, you move before the building renders

    Just Sprint to the wall and hit jump…i tried that alot of times and no need to exit game =D Cheers ~

      The sprinting while spawning helped enormously thank you!

  4. Another method I’ve used is pulling out my ethernet cable while running/vaulting. Then drop back to the server list, reconnect cable, join a server again and you should be free. This has gotten me out of buildings, rocks, and ponds that tried to om nom nom me.

    I just crawled out…a lot easier than all of that

    yeah hi… i have been at this shit for like 3 hours now and i am getting pretty pissed off. I tried killing myself with alchohol poisoning, dying of thirst and hunger, vaulting, crawling, rolling, vaulting then logging back in, logging myself out of the game through ethernet, and trying to walk through the corner of the building and nothing is working. Please reply ASAP

    • looks like you’ve tried everything – and then tried some more. Sorry o tell you, maybe best to delete your user files in your documents folder and re-roll.

    This is terrible…I can’t starve, I’m stuck and deleting the game files didn’t help at all as steam seems to save my location…isn’t there a ‘kill self’ command?
