This is REALLY annoying !

I'm at Level 26, Region 4. Enjoying Dino Hunter very much! Choc full of awesome goodness. However -

The following phenomena is beginning to drive me mad...

When you play a Contract Hunt and the message pops up with, for example, "A rifle is recommended. Equip one now?" and you tap on "Equip" you do NOT fill your weapon slot with the last rifle you used... you get an earlier (i.e., weaker) rifle.

This seems to occur on all of the prompts for Shotgun, Bow, etc. When you select "Equip" you should get the weapon from that category that you last used, whatever it was. You're using it because it's the most powerful and best accessorized.

But, no. If you don't go and check, you'll find you do not have the happening gun you've worked hard to own, you'll find you've equipped yourself with the wimpy one you stopped using ages ago. You're forced to tap on Back, Swap Out, select the weapon you want, Equip Weapon, then tap Next and then get to hunting. It's all a lot of needless tapping and navigating around.

Please, Glu. Make the default result of your "Equip" choice be the last weapon of that category that you used.

Anyone else have this gripe?

    It also happens in Deer Hunter 2014. The automatic "Equip" does not always give you your best in the category. I learned the hard way to manually check which one I have before the hunt begins.

    But yeah, I agree with you that the default result should be either the best in the category, or as you say, the last one you used in the category.

    I figure the last-one-used would do it. Whether you want the most powerful you've got, or whether you've handicapped yourself deliberately with something underpowered, you're covered either way.

    Yeah, this annoyed me in DH2014 for a while. I'm used to it now, and manually select whatever weapon I want. Not clicking "equip" has become second nature.

    I actually made a comment about this in the past, I said that if DH14 has the 2 options;"equip secondary" Equip primary"... then Dinos should have "equip recommended" and "Equip Best" or something like that

    One may ignore the recommendated gun, however one need to be carefully select the gun. Go back and choose the best you think for the hunt..

    Yeah I've always hated this, which is why I always select 'Edit Loadout' nowadays.
