When I am on the ground I use a sniper rifle, but every time I use it I have to open the menu and drag the " sniper shot to rthe action bar " How can I get it to stay there like all the other icons? if I beam up then back down I have to do it all over again. This very annoying
I think this is caused by having multiple instances of the icon on your action bars, I had problems with missing the primary fire or the melee icons.
Try this out....
Scroll through all 10 bars and find all instances of the missing icon, then delete them from all bars. Now drag the icon from the P menu to action bar 1 (or wherever you want it) This "should" fix it. I suffered the same problem until I did this.
