Hello all, first post here! Great game. I play it when I’ve time for a game - good with a young family as those moments can be short & sparse, this is a great drop-in quick play game with surprising depth.
One of the minor bugbears is the choice to make reloads manual on some weapons - the bolt-action rifle and that pump shotgun. I get (and prefer!) the reloads being manually started, but tapping reload for each cartridge on these guns makes them wildly impractical - whatever their firepower potential. I rarely see anybody use one and for good reason, an empty shotgun (especially with extended mags) takes long enough to reload already without having to tap reload for each shell.
Am I missing something about how to use these weapons, or is that intended? If it’s intended I suggest changing it, or at least not adopting that method in future titles. It makes reloading too distracting and takes fun out of the game, so the players I’ve seen mostly just try them once then change to something else.
Great game otherwise, the above’s always been a niggle for me.
