If your health is full you can’t use health boosters, and you don’t automatically equip them when you pick them up, they just appear in your inventory unless you swap out your Stimms whilst you have one equipped.
I hate when I try to stim a teammate. I switch to my weapon as soon as the injecting stim animation appears and it cancels out the stim. It’s so stupid. To make sure that I inject it correctly, I have to look at my inventory if the stem disappears or not.
It’s so annoying because we use stim during clutch time. But we have to be super close to a teammate and wait for the whole animation to fully finish. I wanna throw up.
Can’t say this has happened to me really. I could understand if you used your stim and hit a weapon key which it didn’t switch to as a missed keystroke, but you’re in slot “4” (or whatever it is for you), you’ve picked up something in slot 4. Kinda makes sense for the game to keep you in slot 4 'til you select another weapon.
If you’re looting while fighting then it’s going to be par for the course.
If you throw a grenade and have more grenades left, you still auto swap off it.
If you deploy a crate and instantly loot a new one, you still auto swap off it.
If you use a stim and instantly loot a new one, you do not swap off it.
Stims clearly are the outlier and should also auto swap you back to your weapon, when used.
Even if you instantly pick up a new stim.
