Octane stim bug (Can't draw weapon)

★★ Newbie

Product: Apex Legends
Platform:PC
Please specify your platform model. PC
AMD or Nvidia Model Number NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
Enter RAM memory size in GB 16GB
What is your gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name? BongRipASMR
Please provide your squad mates' gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name if possible.
Which Legend were you playing (if applicable)? Octane
Which Legends were your squad mates using (if applicable)?
Where did the issue occur? In a match
Which part of the map or menu were you in? If you don't remember the exact name, please describe the area or what you were trying to do in the menu. Airbase, climbing the small ledge around/underneath the platform which has the plane on it
What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. Climbing a ledge whilst trying to stim (Q) and holster weapon
Did your squad mates also experience the issue? No
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? Don't remember. Maybe 2?
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm) 7.04.19 20:15(maybe not sure) (UTC+12)
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? When you're stimmed and climb a ledge (but possibly other ways that I'm not aware of), OR stim straight after climbing a ledge like in my situation, you cannot draw a weapon/shoot/attack/interact with items until the stim ends, which takes about 6 seconds as far as I'm aware, so all you can do is run around/crouch/slide until it ends while you get shot at and die.
What should be happening instead? Should be able to draw weapon/fire/melee/interact with objects while stimmed
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Stim before/during/after climbing a ledge, try holstering/unholster weapon before and after climbing ledge as that may be a part of it too possibly.

Should be lots of info in that post hopefully.

@EphysaurTTV 

Thanks for the video. From what I saw in the clip it looks like there was a delay when you switched to the Spitfire. Does this happen every time you use your stim?

Doesn't happen every time but when it does it can get quite annoying.

Try right-clicking on the game in Origin and select "Repair." See if that helps. Have you tried a reinstall yet to see if that could possibly correct this? I haven't seen too many reports like this, so it might be due to a corrupted update.

Yep sure I'll do that. Here's another one from a famous streamer because of Octane's stim as well
