I wish I were more observant because I might have noticed this sooner.
Jasper emailed me to tell me that he was watching his partner, known as Scraps on PP, play Strider Mountain. She changed weapons from the AR2, which had 1 shot left, to another weapon. he suggested that she reload the AR2 because she will need it.
Much to his and my surprise, she said she didn’t need to because when she changed back it would be full reloaded.
Perhaps every player reading this will say “DUH! Of course, who doesn’t know this? But honestly, I have never noticed this before. Probably because I use a weapon until it’s empty and then move on to the next one. Stupid, I know but I am sooo lazy.
Now, what I would like to know is this: Does it only work when you have one shot left? If not, what is the limit? Is it true for all weapons? Which weapon is ready fastest? Would it be the crowbar?
The reason this is important is because it’s much faster to change weapon and then back again than it is to reload. Jasper tells me that you must wait until the new weapon is pointed before changing back otherwise the old weapon wouldn’t have reloaded.
I would love to hear some other “hacks” like this that would make my life easier.
DO YOU KNOW OF OTHER HACKS?
