Description:
If i join a lobby, i cannot see the host or any player that has joined before me and none of their equiptment, it will put them at a random lodge on the map but they are nowhere near it, Their tents,blinds,decoys etc. are invisible but i can see their dogs and any animals they kill, if i harvest it will be sent to (?) for the score. This happens about 90% of the games i have joined.

Game Mode: MP
Hunter Name: CatchU

Description:
I am invisible when hosting a game for the first player joining on different maps and locations. Also the tent is invisible for the guest. My black lab with blue collar is visible but as a blond lab without collar.
The collision model for me is fine. I see the guest an cannot go or shoot thru the avatar. Vice versa my guest can walk and shoot through me because I am invisible to him.

As soon as a third player (second guest) is joining I am visible to all players. The same for the tent. Also the collision model is fine then. If the problem with the dog persists couldn't be tested yet.

Steps to Reproduce:
Host a MP game and let someone join.

Additional Information:
Ping was around 5 this time via the same router.
The same thing happend couple of months ago with a buddy from the US. He had a very high ping and we thought this was the reason. As soon as a third player joined the problem was solved. Even when the third player left I stayed visible to him.

As much as I hate to propagate a work-around, and having had to deal with this myself (as host), have the host remove or change something in their inventory. That's worked for my guests thus far. :?
A recent study has shown that women who have gained weight tend to live longer than men who mention it.

I can confirm that bug too. Very annoying.

@HunterBooth: Thanks for your workaround suggestion, can't wait to test it.

I have tried switching items in my inventory but had no luck.
The problem seems to occur on all maps. My mate hosted a game the other day and had no issues.
One other thing to note is that he cant hear me fire my weapons either and he is able to shoot directly at me as though I am not there.
Any other possible solutions?

Switching any item doesn't help. The host has to change the hat. That works for me.

Game Mode: MP
Hunter name: Mapache01, Honeywest (guest) Host: Hunterbooth

Description:
You login on MP as guest, you cannot see host REAL host position, you always see his position (arrow) on the lodge, nor can see his equipment, you can be next to tent, TS, the host can be next to you and you cannot see him, he can see you.

Also you cannot see some other guests on the game

The Host change his hat and VOILA you can see him now and also the equipment, then the other guest change his hat and Voila you can see him too.

Thanks for clearing that up mapache01, it worked when I removed my hat, exited the inventory and reapplied the hat.
