Losing ammo when switching between secondary weapons

just wanted to ask when you change between different secondary weapons is your ammo supposed to reset to zero as i thought that was quite annoying, because when your situation changes and wanna go from sniper to rocket launcher you lose all ammo. just wanted to know if it was intentional. thanks

  • Its annoying cas you go to try a new weapon and if you dont like it its tuf luck cas you got no ammo left for the previous weapon. I kinda really hope they set ammo to be like boarderlands was i.e seperate ammo stash for each weapon type. That way like lovetrunk said you then have ammo for said situation of long range sniper rifle set yet need cqb shotgun for quick cq kills

    I believe this was intentional and I personally think it doesn't need to be fixed. Since day 1, if u ever switched weapons you lost half of your ammo for that weapon slot. I've noticed lately that it doesn't happen to primary anymore, only special and heavy. The reasoning behind this is that people will abuse the ammo regenerating weapons. Anytime someone runs out of special ammo, the can switch to ice breaker. Now it still works but you only get half of full reserve if you switch from ice breaker to any other special weapon. But there's also the issue of, if your holding an exotic on a different slot (example: gjallarhorn) and u have to switch that to another heavy, wait for ammo regenerating, then switch back both heavy and special. You'd lose 75% of your heavy ammo by doing this. Its an incentive to keep players from lazily sitting around waiting for ammo. At least that's what I thought. Edit: didn't notice that this post was very very old.
