Hi everyone, I've been playing AvP2 for some time (singleplayer) and never encountered any problems. Then I tried to play on multi. Everything seemed to be ok, but then I noticed a strange problem. When I change my weapons to other than the basic (knife, wristblades etc.) and try to shoot, they're switching back to the first. For example - I spawn as a marine (Harrison) with a knife. I switch the weapon to the smartgun, fire a few bullets and then the weapon is switching back to the knife. The shotgun is sometimes working, but after some time it's switching too. I don't know what could cause this - on the single player campaign everything is working fine. Could anyone help me?

No, I'm not running any mods. And I've got the SP patch (avp2sp1.exe). Oh, I'm also using the NoCD patch (but I don't think that this have any connection with the problem).

OMG LMAO ok some weapons are banned from servers like smart guns disks shoulder cannon and rocket launcher and if you are spawning in a spawn shadow or whatever they call it you cant use any weapons that is why they dont work

So I can't use any weapons if I'm in the proximity of the spawn area - that's it? If that's the answer - thank you very much (and sorry but I'm just a beginner).

exactly... usually tracking weapons are banned, try using stuff like (as predator) a combi stick, if your favorite character has a weapon that you like to use and its banned, then just switch your character (F1) to a different character and find another weapon, then just get good at that weapon and your set... or you can just go to a different server... not all servers have banned weapons

Personally, I love to play the Predator using melee weapons, and the weapons switched when I was in the 'spawn shadow'. Also, I've played the marine once and was curious if it's not an error. Thanks for clearing things up.
