This bug seems to happen in Abandoned Complex, and is similar to the “Transport Loot Lock” bug found in The Source.
However, unlike that bug, this results in loot spawning in a spot where it is _ impossible _ to collect. I’ve tried to collect it myself, even in a cutter. I was unable to interact with it.
Unless this was intentional bait or some bugged enviromental object (like those Soyuz capsules floating around, or those weird shaped boulder asteroids) I consider this to be a bugged loot item in the location of Abandoned Complex.
