The melee weapon blessing "Shred" applies it's increased critical chance to your ranged weapon, and persists almost indefinitely. Is this intended?

Issue Description:

The critical chance increase from the Shred blessing affects melee and (some) ranged weapons. It does not seem to affect braced autoguns or boltguns, but it affected every other ranged weapon I tried. It also persists (almost) indefinitely - it is unaffected by dodging, sliding, blocking, changing weapons, etc. It’s not 100% persistent, and usually falls off 2 or 3 times during missions, but at unpredictable times; it’s not clear what triggers it to fall off.

Possibly related to the Crucian Roulette bug?

Steps to Reproduce:

It’s easiest to see the effect in the meat grinder:

  1. Enter the meat grinder
  2. Get full Shred stacks using any melee weapon with the Shred blessing
  3. Switch to your ranged weapon and count crits. The +crit chance seems to affect everything except braced autoguns and boltguns
  4. Slide, dodge, block, leave for a while to make a cup of tea, then observe that the Shred effect is still active on both ranged and melee weapons

Please keep this the way it is! Maybe this and Crucian Roulette are not “working as intended” but the high crit play style is really fun.
