Weapon-swapping recharges faster.

Count Recharge.png Recharge Time: 5 seconds

— In-game description


Rather than reducing weapon swap times as the description suggests, weapon swap times are instead set to 5 seconds. This can cause issues when players traited with fast hands are carrying bundle items, since the five second wait time is enforced before players can drop the bundle. (This only seems to affect the drop bundle icon on the GUI, and using a bound keyboard command will still allow players to drop the bundle without issue)
