Yep it's a known issue. There are some suggestions/workarounds here, they may help for now: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Megathread-Unable-to-Loot-with-Non-Default-Control-Layout/m-p/...

@EA_David This is not the issue I'm talking about, actually it's not a bug... You can say it's (Game Feedback).
Since the introduction of the new overhauled Deathbox UI in Season 5, this button in the screenshot was missing on PC: https://i.redd.it/6xpir9esii251.png
You literally forgot to put this button in the new UI, and this is different from the issue in the link above.
So please can you show this to devs so they can add the button back again? 🥺

Ah I apologize. I literally never used that button so it didn't even register to me. 

 

Thanks for clarifying.
