Introducing the Quick Weapon Action (Beta)
A new feature, the Quick Weapon Action (in beta), has been incorporated into Controller Options!
With Quick Weapon enabled, it takes over the function of the “Next Weapon” button. By pressing Quick Weapon, you equip your primary item. Simultaneously press a face button while using Quick Weapon to switch to one of your other item slots. You can combine Quick Weapon and a face button for an instant item swap, or simply hold down the Quick Weapon button to familiarize yourself with how the face buttons correspond to items in your inventory.
Moreover, when Quick Weapon is active, “Previous Weapon” is replaced with “Place Marker” to enhance squad communication. If you prefer, you can customize your controls in the controller customization options to replace “Previous Weapon” with an action of your choice.”
