I don't know if anyone else has had this problem, but whenever I'm out in the field and I switch my special from my shotgun to my sniper or vice versa, the special ammo resets. So I frequently find myself with a full sniper rifle, but I need my shotgun. Then upon going into the character menu and switching them out, the game tells me that I have no more ammo for my specials. I don't have this problem with my primary, I'm not sure about my heavy (I only have one MG lol), but every time I switch my specials I lose all of the ammo I had. I would much appreciate if this issue could be looked into, as it really hinders my ability to play the game properly (what with only have one weapon available at any given time). Excellent game, though. Keep up the good work Bungie! *EDIT* Before anyone else comes in and tells me to think about the problem before posting, I'm am well aware of the logic of not being able to fire shot shells from a sniper rifle. Where said logic ends is when you switch back to the shotgun and all of your shot shells have magically vanished, too. So please, be constructive, rather than insulting my thought process. I rest my case. -MOYA5H1-
That's not a glitch... it's logic. If you have 15 shotgun shells but want to snipe that really sucks. You have shotgun shells... not sniper bullets... and not fusion rifle plasma. Same can be said for the heavy weapons, when you have 200 MG bullets but want to shoot your rocket launcher, well too bad cause you don't have any rockets. You have a box of MG rounds.
Lol ok ill adress ur issue . BUNGIE specifically said that is the penalty for switchin guns in the middle of a battle but also why the special ammo respawns so quickly ... also u can buy ammo at the gunsmith so if u do need to switch u can instantly replenished ur ammo for the gun u switched out see simple
If it was meant to be that way, its a stupid rule. If I collect ammo with both guns then I should be able to keep it. Hopefully bungie changes this "logic".
