When you toss a remote, a proxy (or a timed c4 as a hottie/tech) and you switch to another weapon and then back, theres about 4 seconds of idle time on whichever mine you are switching back to, while if you don't switch weapons the reload time is 1 second.

I assume this is a bug.

It's all part of the big illusion that we perpetuate on ourselves and in turn is perpetuated upon us. When we believe, we engage the illusion. When we stop believing we shatter the illusion and shatter ourselves in the process. Because we are, part of it.

That's the "reload time", consider it the time you need to prepare your next C4. Normally, this would be in between the first and second throw, but if you switch, then you interrupt it and will have to do it when you next select the C4. The same goes for switching weapons when reloading any other weapon: you will have to reload after switching.

I don't know if it's a perception of longer reloading, or whether there really is an issue here.

However, it does seem that if you do not switch then you have your next remote c4 available very quickly, but if you switch, the reload does look like it takes quite a while longer.

Again, this could just be perception, but I have noticed an experienced what is being described here, too.

The thing is, you can throw your timer and then quickly switch and the game still shows your timer as ammo, switch to it and you throw thin air.

So the game shows ammo that you don't have.

Does this 3-C4 issue still exist in beta5, on a beta5 server? We had this issue reported previously, but never had confirmation on whether it still occurred after the ammo changes we did some time ago.

Yes, I have definitely had this bug in Jelly (which is Beta 5). I'm not sure how to reproduce it, though.

Added to bug tracker. If someone knows the exact reproduction steps, that would be much appreciated.
