Many users, in the subreddit di Outriders, are reporting a rather troubling problem. In fact, it appears that their entire inventories have been completely cleaned up. People Can Fly is aware of the problem and has helped some players to retrieve equipment, but it is not known when the bug will be fixed.

The list of known issues published by the software house suggests that the exact cause of the bug is still unclear but judging by player reports, it seems to have to do with the game crashing or disconnecting while another player enters or exits the game.

The worrying thing is that this problem was also present within the demo, and it was not fixed before the release of the full game. In short, avoid playing online for a while, just to be a little safer.
