@Sharkchulk I tried swapping with ping, but then the ping wheel started to pop up. This is really testing my patience with this game.
The constant dying because of this wheel window makes me not even want to play anymore.
I really hope they can change it to allow us to disable the wheel from popping up at all. Quips are a cosmetic feature to the game. It does not help the game play in any way, but it does hurt the game play drastically.

This bug started happening to me after the most recent update, it’s very frustrating because it always causes the quip wheel to pop up when you’re pressing a lot of buttons (none of which are for the quip wheel), and this is usually during gunfights. I tried checking whether my controller was busted by switching my button layout, but whenever I get to pressing a lot of buttons (aiming, looking, strafing, firing, and crouching at the same time or in close succession) the quip wheel once again pops up. Therefore, it has to be a game bug. I’m uninstalling and installing the game to see if that fixes it, otherwise I’ll have to put this game down until the next patch/update.

@flempo Flempo, did reinstalling help?

Does Respawn/EA see these comments? Is this similar to a service request ticket? The reason why I added this issue to this page is because I was under the impression that they would see this, and provide some assistance/resolutions.
I hope this is not a venting session, and something good will come out of this.

@Enigmatic333 reinstalling did not help--it appears the bug mostly happens after erratically pressing both triggers and specifically the left bumper in quick succession. Not sure if Respawn or EA will see this, but it's good insight for whoever they have debugging this.
