I keep saying this. In a game where you have limited abilities on long cooldowns, weapon swapping needs to work without a hitch.

New World is the only game where it can’t get weapon swapping to work right. It is clunky and unreliable. And the UI where it shows the wrong weapon bar is one of the most inexcusable things ever.

It comes back down to the basic problem that New World allows its functionality to get interrupted so it doesn’t complete what it’s supposed to do, leaving buffs/actions/statuses in a half-state.

This half-assed state is the bottom line problem with most of the bugs that are plaguing this game including duplications (where moving items does an ADD/DELETE but can be interrupted so it only does an ADD).

Understood that things can occasionally get interrupted, but this game does the cardinal sin of NOT CHECKING BACK to make sure some status/buff/item/weapon state is the correct one. So sometimes you end up with buffs and effects that persist way longer than they should. THE GAME DOESN’T CHECK!
