Hotkeys are unreliable. I've submitted a bug report on it.

It's definitely a game problem, because I can often see a response from the client (i.e., the sweeping shader that moves across the icon when you activate a power) indicating the client has seen the keypress, yet the power doesn't actually activate.

It's bad enough in PvE, but in PvP it is a literally game-changing dynamic. Having to mash a button multiple times to make sure it "fires" is bad enough, that it also comes in addition to the need to mash Fire All Weapons to compensate for a byzantine set of weapon timers and multiple interrelated weapon exclusions impossible to manage in real time is inexcusable.

I recommend that anyone seeing this behavior submit a bug report in-game, because this is a very serious problem that needs prompt attention.
