In the video you can see me trying to swap my secondary weapon P2020 for a Wingman. During the entire time, Im aiming either at the Wingman (the game even recognizes this) or at nothing but still, it ends up with me switching my P2020 for another P2020.... HOW???
So this is something thats been bugging me since a couple of patches back. Apart from this bug, it seems like the loot mechanism is malfunctioning many others ways too. One problem is that the game wont aim at the object that your crosshair is pointing at, i.e. you clearly aims at an item but the game highlights the object next to it. Another bug is that the game will interpret a double click E as "holding E". These two bugs together makes it even worse. You run up to a crate, CLEARY aim at the item next to a weapon, the game thinks you are aiming at the weapon so nothing happens and you click E again and the game falsely interpret this as a "hold" on the weapon and you swap.....
I think its important that you DEVS fix this ASAP. It maybe seems like a minor inconvenience but it really isnt. The ability to loot fast and with accuracy is super important, especially early game at the drop. How many times have I not run up to a loot crate, trying to pick up a shield battery but instead swapping my R99 for a Mozambique because of this stupid bug??
Yeah, and it makes literally no sense how this can happen. Even the game recognizes that Im aiming at the Wingman during the "hold e"-input by highlighting the Wingman. How is it even possible for the game to swap the P2020?
This issue was introduced after Season 4 came to exist...
This was actually worst a month ago, but was patched. Still the issue its present and picking its also broken.
We have a reminder that Season 4 was in fact the most broken season yet.
Yeah I also remembered that his was a problem that actually was introduced late to the game after a patch, and not something thats always been there.... So strange tbh. The only plausible explanation I can think of is that its an attempt by the DEVs to make it easier for people on controllers to loot since they lack the speed and precision of a mouse... Either way, it should be removed and you should loot the item that your crosshair is pointing at

@BabbediboopiThe loot box equip box is too big. You can see in the slow downed version you did you just happen to lean just far enough to the left to hit the p2020. While its a common mistake I think the equipment boxes are set too big for some items at moment.
This has been an issue since they came out with the 3rd person mode game type awhile ago. Its been months and they still haven't fixed it. Its pretty laughable how bad this dev team is
