Yo! I couldn't seem to see a thread dedicated solely to the issues found with firearms in game so, I decided to make one!
Please only post here your issues that you've experienced in game while handling a weapon be it pistol, rifle, sniper or shotgun. ( This includes ammunition )
It could be anything from chamber problems, reload issues, glitches in peripheral vision, or 1st / 3rd person vision detriments due to optics.
( Don't post any vision related issues if you have your FOV changed in your config files, as the DEVs recommend we don't change it & it doesn't count as a legitimate glitch as it's been tampered )
Issues that I have experienced that are causing problems in game
Shotgun loading infinite amount of shells including audio with no shells actually being loaded - FIX: Press R again
Shotgun being fully loaded with 5 Shells ( pump action ) But when coming to fire the character chambers another shell instead of shooting. **I have included a video for this as it's a big issue for me, WATCH IT HERE -
When aiming down sight with any shotgun while moving forward while crouched, the rear stock / plated receiver section will clip through the players vision slightly.
Having to press F 3 to 4 times to pick up a weapon or ammo. Usually ammunition.
Once having reloaded a rifle, AK / M16 / M416 or SCAR - When coming to fire it changes to a red ammo capacity, example - 0 / 90 -
Weapon sounds not playing until after I've been killed
Weapon sounds are reversed / Inverted / in the opposite direction while in spectator mode
Also, what happened to the crossbow? I can never find it anymore. *Daryl Dixon grunt*
Other issues include pistols being very under powered, takes at least 8 - 10 rounds with an M9 to down a player with no armour. However I'm not sure if calibre types apply yet.
Post your issues here!
