PuF Sneg - for posting the video and probably finding the glitch
Mizzle420420 - for written tutorial and deciphering what the hell these guys are doing in the video
I'm honestly way too tired of DayZ to actually care enough to test this in-game.
I had fun figuring it out from a Russian video and I thought I would share it to help out anyone who plays this shit still.
The English subtitles are quite comical, check them out if you want a giggle.
Basically you pick up a gun off the ground into hands, it leaves a ghost clone on the ground which is still connected to the one in your hands as they would both share ammo and what not if fired. You cant pick up a ghost cloned gun unless you swap a weapon from your shoulder for it. Once you have both the original gun and your ghost clone (one in your hands, one on your shoulder) your going to log out and back in. logging out and back in will make the ghost clone become a real gun and now they are both usable. This would be effective for cloning ammo and other items as well.
Edit: There seems to be another step to actually get the ghost clone to appear but I don't speak Russian, maybe somebody would be nice enough to clarify. Its seems to have something to do with eating the food, maybe like eat the food with the gun in your hands and when you automatically set the gun on the ground to eat your friend picks it up. This would require your inventory to be full to do it with small items and pistols otherwise they would be put into your inventory and not the ground.
I imagine this would also work if both of you each held one of the guns (one dude with the original, one dude with the ghost clone) and logged out.

The Following User Says Thank You to Mizzle420420 For This Useful Post:
Here is the translated and simplified version of whats going on here:
Both players 1 and 2 stand opposite one another with a gun on the floor (between them). Player 1 has NOTHING on his back or in his hands, while player 2 could have a gun on his back but NOTHING in his hands. Player 2 is not required to have a gun on his back but if he does - it doesn't matter. On to the dupe!
Player 2 Eats (eat all or eat, depending on how fast you are) then drags the weapon thats on the floor in to his hands replacing the food hes eating (while eating).
Player 1 waits for player 2 to drag the gun over his food THEN puts the gun in to his own hands (All of this has to be done while player 2 is in the eating animation).
Both player 1 and 2 should have the duplicate guns in their hands.
Player 1 Presses the little red X at the top right of their hands box, this will steal the weapon from player 2.
Player 1 will have gun in hands and a gun on his back, the gun on his back will have a white hand over it, that is intended.
