Please provide your squad mates' gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name if possible.

What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. Any
Did your squad mates also experience the issue? I don't know
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? 1
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm) 15-10-19 11:35 am
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? I can NOT equip the new Mirage skin I just paid 18$ for. I have to close the app open it back up and then I can use it.... for 1 game, then somehow it unequipped and so random skin in equipped.
What should be happening instead? My skin should be usable and stay on every match
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? No idea. About to tell yin’s to keep it and just give me my money back.

I’ve never had this happen before. First game of fright or flight and I hate to dashboard 3 times to even get the skin to equip, come back to the lobby after the match and some random skin is equipped and I have to dashboard yet again. This is stupid... it already cost 300% more than normal and it doesn’t even function right.. give me a fn break people

Thanks for the extra detail, that helps a lot. 


Edit: I see you've marked yourself as on Xbox One, but It looks like you're on PS4 to me. Can you confirm what system you're on?

 

Edit 2: Can you try closing down the game client then see if they'll work properly afterwards?

@Eronic94 Hey, I just got word that a single game client restart should allow you to equip the items without issue, can you try that?

Thank you for that. Can I double check that you exited the game, manually closed the client, then restarted?

I can see the skin in your inventory so you definitely have it.
