Boltgun Animation Lock + Forced Semiautomatic Fire when using Veteran Sharpshooter ability

Issue Description:

When you use the Veteran Sharpshooter class ability, the game will swap you to your ranged weapon. Importantly, you can immediately start shooting with the weapon (there are no animation locks the swap from melee to ranged normally creates). After the change to the boltgun animation, however, there now exists what appears to be an animation lock timer + strange behaviors for the boltgun.

When you fire the gun after swapping to it using the ability, it treats it as an ADS shot - semiautomatic. Holding down the fire button will fire a single round. You then have to click again (2nd time) to fire a 2nd round, and finally you can click and hold on the 3rd shot to fire the rest of the rounds.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Play any map as Veteran (Sharpshooter) with the Boltgun as ranged weapon.
  2. Have your melee weapon out, and then use the veteran ability to enter the shooting stance.
  3. Immediately attempt to fire the entire weapon in automatic fire mode (aka without ADS). Click and hold the trigger.
  4. You will notice the behavior.
