Ever since the patch, every game you are matched into 9 out of 10 times will have either an icebreaker, sidearm, or invective. Now I'm not crying nerf for any of these. The one thing I want fixed is being able to change one of those three weapons to a different special and still have ammo in between rounds. Completely avoiding the special boxes. I propose bungie changes those weapons to only generate ammo for that weapon. If you have the icebreaker with 6 shots and you switch at the end of the round in trials to a different sniper it shouldn't carry over ammo, same with invective. With side arms you should still be able to start out with ammo but that ammo shouldn't carry over to any other gun unless you grab a special box. Bungie PLEASE implement this. I think it would be a great fix.
Switching between rounds isn't the issue. If you need to adjust your play style to combat snipers or shotties and you're using the opposite, you would want to switch your own weapon without losing ammo, am I right? The fix that needs to be in play is to not allow regeneration of ammo during the start that first round for 3v3 / 2v2 (if they bring doubles back) until special is actually available. If no one can start with special ammo, why should you get almost a full reserve so quickly? Side note: If you're using a weapon that drops you to 295-300 and you're up against a bunch of 315-320s, you shouldn't be doing all that much damage to them. Not saying you shouldn't do any, but you shouldn't be able to drop people 15-20+ your light so quickly. It would make things a lot more competitive in my opinion, but I can see why it isn't currently like that. TL;DR Icebreaker/Invective don't need nerfing necessarily, just pause the perks until special ammo is actually available. And no, we don't need a Year 2 version.
