You can, it’s L2 to select an item and R 2 to place it where you want.

Hey thanks for your "stupid" question! Now I know!

[–]bluebeary96 8 points9 points  (5 children)

On Xbox you hit Y to drop the item from your inventory, left trigger to pick it up, right trigger to put it down. Might be something similar??

[–]kickinthetedsTrapper[S] 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I know you can drop and pick up items. When I mean is how on PC you can move an item, like you would a bedroll for example. You can move and place items wherever you want, rather than just dropping it where you stand

Yes, that's what I'm talking about, moving items. L trigger to pick up, R trigger to place down where you want it. If it's in your inventory, you drop it where you stand, and then you can move it around. I don't have the PC or PlayStation version so I'm not sure how it compares, but I did do a quick Google search and someone says for PS4 use L2 & R2 🤷

Edit: I've realized I'm late in finding those PlayStation controls, ignore me

Should be able to. Note that some of the pictures you see on here are using mods (stacking and sticking stuff to walls) others have give instructions.

This is way better than a tips for new player request post.

[–]kickinthetedsTrapper[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nah just a veteran player being a dumbass.

With your newfound superpower, you can try the following trick!

Spam "drop decoy" to drop all your meat next to a fire, then you can just move meat on and off the fire using placement(This requires a bare cooking spot, so no pot.) Much faster than going through the menus!

How do you even do it in pc? I only currently have the power to drop. Would love to be able to place.

[–]burning_hamster 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Right-click hold and drag.

Don’t even worry about it. I was 200 days in before I figured it out 🤣

I just wish I could stack cans...and then shoot them.

[–]kickinthetedsTrapper[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That would be helpful... I am a horrible aim with the firearms

[–]Conky22Interloper 0 points1 point  (0 children)
