I thought it was designed like this?
Since this skill can be activated under ranged weapons instead of actively switching weapons like veterans, I don’t think it’s a skill limited to melee weapons.

I hope it’s by design. It gives zealots more ranged diversity to deal with crushers besides the bolter.

This “bug” has been in since launch and at this point is a core component of zealot gameplay and builds. Why would you want it fixed in the first place? And at this point, I feel like it should just be part of the tooltip as its essential to the classes viability
