Why on earth would they do that? I'm thinking they have no clue what they're doing half the time and this is another one of those poor programming mistakes that led to things like silencer+ghost making you show up on the radar.
^It's this type of mentality that lets the devs get away with half-assed games, patches, dlc, etc.
How the hell does one sense sarcasm from a single word post?
How about they just remember what setting you have it on and persist it across all games? Its annoying to have to do it every single round. Simple quality of life change.
Here's another: Your primary gets 2 attachment slots for free, but the secondary only gets one. If you use overkill, it still gets one. So say you want to use an AR and a shotgun, and you want 2 attachments on the shot gun and 1 on the AR, but you want to start off using the AR because the shotgun is situational. Guess what, you can't. You either have to waste another point getting your secondary a second attachment, or deal with having to switch weapons at the very beginning of EVERY spawn. HEUEHUHE good game design. How about you just let me choose which weapon to begin a spawn with?
