Scorchbeast just toasted me and when I tried to respawn I for the message “Can’t respawn while overencumbered”. There was no point on the map where I could respawn, not even with my team. Is this a bug or am I missing something? Really angry, lost a load of stuff it seems 🙁
This is understood to be a bug, and a pretty irritating one at that. The first major patch is about to drop on 19 November which addresses bugs and with any luck this will be one of the fixes.
If it happens, leave the game completely and log back in but it likely means all the stuff you dropped on death will not be retrievable.
