Last night, I played as Zealot with brace of pistols and I noticed something very odd.
If I reload my brace of pistols after shooting then swap from melee back to range, the animation for reloading will start even though my clip is already full. It causes me to get stuck for 2 seconds and cannot immediately switch back to melee during it. This caused me to get hit numerous times.
In other words, my pistols want to reload when it doesn’t need to be reloaded.
