Can you try a power cycle to see if that clears this up for you?


Touch the power button on the front of the PS4 for at least 7 seconds (until the system beeps twice). Turn it back on after 1 minute. Launch the game.


You said it's happening 100% of the time. Do you have an extra controller you can test out to see if it's hardware related? Also, what shotgun is it?


Hey that was a great reply. Good stuff. What now? Give them +XP to help level them up!
