There's a bug floating around that would disable you from switching ammo in-battle.


I've discovered the cause!


Many of us pull up the basic chat panel, especially supremacy, right at the beginning and wait for either the countdown or the battle to begin so that most of your team will see it. If you note your ammo panel while doing this, the text goes gray, but before the countdown begins, it remains open and cannot be shut, which is normal.


The bug is caused only when the player hits a chat command right as the ammo tray collapses down as the battle begins. This causes the ammo box to be locked in the "chat command" state, where you are never meant to be able to operate it. This happens more often on supremacy because many players will direct their team by commanding for a certain capture point, which can result in most if not all of your team going that direction.


How does a player fix this bug?


Simple. Send chat commands before the countdown begins or wait a few moments after the battle has begun to hit the chat command you wish. But WG should fix this bug, whether or not the player can fix it for themselves.

Not the only cause.  May be a cause but not THE cause.  If had it happen without that.
