Thank you for your report, does this only happen with this specific weapon? Does it still happen if you use mouse & keyboard?

Can confirm similar issue, having major issue with ads and shooting with helbore lasgun using a ps5 controller

Mouse and keyboard works just fine. I’ve only had the issue with the Helbore, every other weapon works just fine.

I’m having this issue as well. Helbore feels really bad clunky on controller but works fine when I switch to m&k.

Can confirm this, had opened a topic, if this weren´t here already.
On XBOX Contorller I can say, Helbore shoots even with ADS, but you need to pull the RT “real” hard, so it will fire. Only Weapon which does this, all other will shoot instantly if you pull the RT normally or fast. With M&K this Problem doesn´t exists.

Checked after latest update, issue still there.

Seems the problem is with the right trigger. I have a Razor Wolverine Ultimate Xbox controller which allows for button mapping. Mapped the firing trigger to the additional gaming paddles and extra bumper resulting in the Helbore to fire and charge while ADS with no problems.
