sometimes, when you reload a rocket launcher, it gets loaded, but youve still got a rocket under your mouse cursor (and can put that back in your backpack).

i still don't know how to make that bug predictable or reproducable.. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt... i dont seem to matter if you take the rocket from the other hand or the backpack...

i think you have to click somewhere above the rocket launcher. try clicking at the top of the "R" or the "I" in the label "RIGHT HAND" up there.
i just tried around a little bit an i did happen already 5 times now... (from approx. 20 tries of reloading...) i still dont know why i does happen sometimes, and sometimes not...

but maybe somebody with more knowledge of the code has faster ways to find out whats going wrong (and how to fix it)

You get this behaviour when the rocket launcher was already loaded and you try to load it again. In this case new ammo is loaded and the old one remains in your hands. Try using different types of rockets: load an ordinary rocket and then try to load incendiary rocket after that. When clicking on the rocket launcher you will see two different types of rockets replacing each other until you are out of TU :)

No this is not the case. I did it with an empty small launcher see my topic Bug farther up.

Actually, as far as I can tell, Serge is right. I thought it was a bug at first, but then I looked closely and it turned out my small launcher was doing exactly what Serge described.

Then why did I have an empty small launcher and I then loaded it and hten I still had the grenade in my hand as well as a small launcher??? I'm serious I haven't been able to figure out how I did it but I did it. Empty launcher then full and I still had the grenade....

rather simply, its an empty shell. Its a nice effect since it means u have to swap out a new mag for an empty one. i guess the graphic can be confusing though since they both look the same empty or full.

No I shot it and then used the 2nd grenade that spawned from it to blow someone up.... I used both and quite efectively.
