What is your gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name? KOG_Strider
Please provide your squad mates' gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name if possible. N/A
Which Legend were you playing (if applicable)? N/A
Which Legends were your squad mates using (if applicable)? N/A
Where did the issue occur? In the lobby (waiting area before the 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. N/A
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. Launching the game through Origin
Did your squad mates also experience the issue? I don't know
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? 0
When did this happen? ( hh:mm) Happens every time I launch the game
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
How severe is your issue? Little to no impact to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? I map the "\" key to sprint. Every time I launch the game the sprint option gets un-mapped and I have to map it again. This only occurs on launch, not in game, nor does it happen after x number of games.
What should be happening instead? The key should remain mapped to sprint after closing and relaunching the game like every other key does.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Map the "\" key (the one next to "z" on a UK QWERTY keyboard) to sprint. Close and relaunch the game. The sprint key will be unmapped.

The "\" Key gets unmapped from sprint every time I relaunch the game.
