Summarize your bug When actively reloading, which is already too long on small boxmag firearms.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Simply press X to reload and then hold X to hotswap instead.
What happens when the bug occurs? The games determined to reload no matter what, with all the limitations on the player in effect. It will switch between weapons for a split second, then back to the former to finish reloading. Not only are you slowed, you cannot use bumper gears and are effectively empty in both guns while this keeps looping. Sometimes, even after performing this loop, you find the gear bumpers are disabled and are forced to land then run around before you can use them again.
What should be happening instead? Fast reload or switch to the new gun. Without either affecting use of gears.

A lot more consideration is needed, should the player find themselves, by themselves or choose to be. This active reload loop bug is responsible for 90% of my critical failures. Like some magical force is preventing basic motor function.
