On a Minecraft server a player dropped an item that kicked my player out. Whenever I log back into this it is very laggy and I can barely move and look around.
I push Q trying to drop it and E to bring up inventory and drop it that way. I also try switching the hot key but nothing works.

Is there anyway for me to fix this?

  • What the hell? How did they do that.

    By kicking you out, do you mean you got an exception and lost connection to the server? May 28, 2014 at 7:27

    I have never heard of anything like that before, can you post a screenshot?

  • Try spamming the drop button. As I suspect the lag is just locking out your attempts to drop it. I have noticed this with lag. My machine is trying so hard to do what ever it is trying to do. That button pressing doesn't even register. You may just have to spam that button and hope for the lag spike to drop as the key is pushed. Best of luck.

A potential solution will be to delete the players file from within the world folder. This will delete the inventory and all of the saved settings for the player thus removing the item. Inside of your server's files and folders you will find a world folder which contains another file that holds all of the individual player data files.

If this is a concern and the player doesn't want to lose the rest of their inventory or saved information, you can have someone new log in, pickup the item, then delete their player file.

Alternatively you can just reset the world if you don't mind doing so which can prevent future problems. If mods are every changed or updated it is recommended to start on a new world to prevent any issues such as this.


It's likely a corrupted item which happens time to time (but more commonly with modded servers).

An admin can edit it out of your inventory with certain tools. Notify them and provide them with what the item is so they can get rid of it either by editing it out of your inventory or by disabling the mod providing the corrupted item.
