Mulitplayer Can't Reload Weapons / Turn Lock

I am playing a mulitplayer game. I am hosting the game with my friend. When the second player has to reload a weapon it locks up. The weapon fires and does the damage to the enemy. The action points are not reduced and the player is unable to continue with the turn. When hitting the reload button nothing is registered. We have tried uninstalling the game and reinstalling. We restarted the game with a new party and the same issue happened as well on the second playthrough.

I started the game as a single player and was able to play with the second players characters and had no issues with the running out of ammunition and being able to reload.

I am looking for a solution to this issue other than not having to remember to reload before the ammunition runs out because this also happens with single shot weapons such as the rocket launcher.

i want to report i've had this issue as well a couple of times, both doing the same as above; the weapon fires, damage is done, but it locks you out from doing literally anything other than dropping and reloading from an earlier save. Its a bit of a pain when you have a good weapon that only has 2 or fewer rounds it can fire but then you constantly run the chance of having to go back to a save just before combat because you don't know if it will break or not, so for now, I will have to stop using the RPG and flamethrowers until it gets sorted.

Hasn't affected me with weapons that have larger magazines yet.

My brother and I also encountered this issue, exactly as described. When the game on the non host player has a gun use it's last bullet/ammo (and needs to be 'reloaded') the game freezes with no work around. If you reload the gun before emptying the magazine you can avoid the issue. So our rocket launcher was rendered (mostly) disabled.

I wanted to add I think we may know the exact patch this was introduced. We played during the daytime on October 27th, 2021 without any issue. We next played the night of October 28th, 2021; and we first encountered this issue. We suspect we hadn't updated the patch released on 10/27/21 when we played that day, but had by our next playthrough.

We strongly suspect the patch released 10/27/21 introduced this issue.

It is a game breaking bug and we've had to put the game down until it can be fixed. Thanks for any assistance!!
