Ghost magazine and how to fix it.

Recommended Posts

I'm willing to bet that a number of people have thrown away your favorite weapon because of what's known as "ghost mag."

Ghost mag is when the magazine is glitched in the magazine slot.  The magazine slot shows the mag, however there is no mag visible in the gun itself.  You are unable to remove it via normal means. 

Maybe I'm not the first to discover how to fix this, but I searched and found nothing.  

At this point, I've fixed 3 guns with a ghost mag so this is a repeatable fix and you also get to keep your magazine.  Sorry no vid, but it is easy.

The fix:

Simply drag the ghost mag ONTO an item in your inventory and let go.  You should keep the mag and it will work again, however I think you may lose the other item, though not 100% sure on that.

Enjoy

If someone tries this out, will they please post a video? Maybe we can have it stored placed in "GUIDES" for other players to see in the future.

I think it might have something to do with holding R to reload as it has happened to me a few times in the past.

Thanks to @Vast I'm able to keep this AKM. Simply make sure there is enough space for the ghost mag in your inventory and it will work. I did lose the Sewing Kit that i replaced the mag with.

Thank you so much for this video. I've been trying to make one, but couldn't get my gun to break.

Old post but still relevant.

If this way doesn't work for whatever reason you can also hold your weapons and drag the 'ghost mag' into your hotbar. Simply equip the mag and boom, it's out of your gun.

Be wary though that the mag is glitched and has a tendency to duplicate and break other guns in many ways. It's better to just yeet the mag.

Also also, be wary not to drop your weapon on the ground until your new magazine is in the gun, as I believe you will have to restart your game in order to pick it up again.
