Affected players sound distraught, reporting that the bug has cost them loot gathered after tens of hours of grinding.
"Like thousands of others today first login after patch I was greeted by this on my Level 50 gear, 94 hour Devastator," said redditor Ok_Entertainment_112. "Today I was going to be leveling my last piece of gear to 50. Me and two friends were celebrating our build completions.
"Everything gone, 94 hours lost, almost complete build lost, this is a joke. Naked at login, server can't connect yada yada like everyone else."
"Adios Outriders," said redditor u/Wolphoenix. "Inventory wipe and not being able to load into my 80 hour main is my final straw."
And in patch notes, the developer said last night's update "fixed the multiplayer crash that can result in client players having their inventory wiped". Clearly, it hasn't done the trick.
Now, People Can Fly has issued an apology, saying it's doing all it can to sort things out.
"We are aware and deeply sorry that some users are continuing to encounter an inventory wipe," the developer said.
"We are doing everything we can to resolve this issue, both server and game-side.
"Our plan is still to work on a restoration for all affected accounts."
