Earlier today, I was playing some Crucible and managed to snag the power ammo for my sword. As I was sprinting around looking for players to swing my sword at, I stumbled upon a small cluster of enemies just out of range.
As I began sprinting toward their group, ready to lay waste, one of them turned and began firing their MIDA Multi-Tool at me. As I hit the crouch key to slide into sword-range in style, I was surprised to find that I didn't slide at all. Instead, I crouched in place, making an easy kill of myself, and my hard fought power ammo.
Does the High-Caliber Rounds perk have a hidden ability to negate a target's sprinting? I'm completely at a loss for what could have happened to my beloved sprint speed.
