Bolter damage RESETS to a high and a low damage mode in meat grinder

Issue Description:

In meat grinder, the bolter will deal HIGH damage, killing the crusher in less than a mag.

Then, upon negligible change to the loadout, the bolter will deal LOW damage, killing the crusher in much more than a mag.

Steps to Reproduce:
Step 3. occurs at about 1:40.

  1. Load meatgrinder on a high difficulty with a bolter equipped.
  2. Test your damage against the crusher - observe that you can ALWAYS kill him in less than a mag.
  3. Equip a new MELEE weapon (this should have no effect on the bolter to my knowledge)
  4. Test your damage again - observe that damage is much lower (or perhaps its DIFFERENT) and you can’t kill the crusher in a mag anymore
    5.??? Not reproducible so far, but I’m able to get my gun BACK to a HIGH damage mode.
