Movement when changing weapons
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When changing weapons, you continue running forward even though you don't push any keys, and you're not able to stop until you've changed weapons.

If you try to strafe when changing weapons, it doesn't react and just continue running forward.

Also, sometimes when switching from fx. M4A1 to Fire Axe (other weapons too), your character still stops to change weapons.

If you weapons is lowered, you'll continue to move forward while changing weapons. If your weapons is raised, your character will stop and perform the change.

Steps To Reproduce

Stopping while changing weapons:
Have weapon equipped in hands -> Raise your weapon -> Run forward -> Change weapons. (You stop while changing weapons)

Keep running forward while changing weapons:
Have weapon equipped in hands -> Lower your weapon -> Run forward -> Change weapons and try to strafe/stop etc. (You keep running forward)

Additional Information

Your character should only move when you push your movement keys. Not keep running after you've decided to change weapons.

Neither should you perform a full stop when changing weapons, and while changing weapons - you should be able to move.

Exactly. In previous patch notes they said it was fixed but it was not.

Wrong error. Related.

Repeated reports are being closed as resolved, but this is easy to replicate.

1 - Wield a rifle
2 - Run
3 - swap to pistol
4 - observe stopped running
5 - run
6 - Swap to fire axe
7 - observe stopped running

Also - confirmed repeatedly that any direction other than forward forces stop to change *any* weapons.

Yeah... I broke one leg in a stair with that glitch... hehe
