Musket causing an extra charge point to be required for distance missions.

If I charge all my scouts all the way up then try to use them in later rounds of the distance it shows them having 2 charge points but needing 3 to be fully charged if they are equipped with the musket.
Just trying to understand the mechanics of how this is meant to work.

    @swydswyd charge your scouts with the musket equipped, normal scout weapons need 2 charges, musket requires 3.

    @swydswyd just tested it out, if the scout is fully charged with the musket and you unequip the musket for a normal scout weapon and equip the musket back you lose a charge point.

    Well, that certainly sucks. I've certainly avoided using the musket in Distance because of this.

    Since we get our charge points one at a time with the bayonet it absolutely should be 2 kills...does not make sense, only weapons that multi kill are 3.

    If you don't use them in a mission, you don't.

    Haven't tried when using them in a mission - so can't attest to that. But you definitely don't if you don't use them.

    Took a video but since I can't upload it here, I took some screenshots with timestamps. ;)

    Charged with the musket:


    Changed to spear:


    Two charge points with normal scout weapon (spear):


    Back to the musket:


    Three charge points still there:

    @Jaden thanks I tried it on a distance mission and switched back, lost a charge point.

    I was actually wondering about that today before I discovered the threat as I had only tested equipping back and forth without entering a mission.

    So now we know what to avoid if we don't want to lose our 3rd charge point: don't use them on a mission equipped with a regular scout weapon.

    It's a shame - but at least no charge point gets lost just by giving them a normal weapon.

    @Governator Could that be what had happened to you that time?

    Hmmmm... I don’t recall swapping out weapons. It’s possible that may be what happened. I usually charge up my scouts and then don’t use them again until I get to the map where I need them. My guess is still that I brain farted. :lol:
