On PS4 - I got to a factory and the game told me to craft a Bolt Caster upgrade for my multi-tool so I can break in, which I did.

I now have 48 rounds in clip, and 352 spare. I start shooting at the door, and empty the clip. The game is telling me to reload, but not how. It displays 0/352.

I found I could recharge the Bolt Caster with plutonium and the clip would reload, but this is awkward.

Then, after successfully getting the antimatter blueprint, I decide to farm some resources. The Bolt Caster seemed to do nothing. I couldn't find a way to switch, so I dismantled the Bolt Caster upgrade.

Is there an easier way to do this on the PS4?

As the controls screen indicates, press triangle to switch weapon modes (in your spaceship too) and square to reload.

  • okay - i'll try again - but I did mash buttons to try and get this to work last night... and I forgot there is a control map in the options menu.

  • hmm - the problem seems to be I wasn't holding the square or triangle for long enough - would have been nice to see some kind of feedback in the hud that I needed to hold longer.

  • Yes, the designers did an awful job with the PS4 controls, especially in the menus.
