Is there a faster way to switch loadouts?

#1sethgzPosted 4/3/2013 6:36:54 PM
I have a loadout for close range combat and one for long range but that's almost pointless since I have to press start and then Y while I'm getting shot at to switch. Is there a faster way?

Totally unrelated but somehow I'm playing on a server right now with only like two other people. It's kind of awesome because there is absolutely no lag.

It registers the change (at least for 2 loadouts) if you just press start, press y and press start again even if the menu doesn't fully come up. Unless you are fighting something with explosive spam, you should be safe.

On another note, they probably did this to force people to work together instead of having one man armies who are jack of all trades.

None that I know of, but I like to have my loadouts equipped for Med/Long and Close Combat. I switch loadouts for ammo purposes during Arkfalls and heavy firefights.

Same here. Those Arkfall fights are a pain without ammo. I used to just run around in circles looking for ammo before I set my second load out with different ammo types.
