Introduce "auto-switch" next to "auto-reload"
Allow players to modify the gun-behavior when the clip empties.
Right now you can either switch "auto-reload" on or off. My suggestion is to add "auto-switch" to that selection.
This would directly switch from primary to secondary and the other way around when the magazine gets empty. IF both weapons are empty it would switch to knife!
on IRC discussed problematics:
-changing of gameplay
–right now auto-reload on/off doesn’t create any noticable advantage, why should auto-switch?

since there occured certain misunderstandings in IRC:
I’m talking ONLY about the situation when your clip is empty, but you still have other clips left.
Some prefer the comfort to use auto-reload which is more comfortably (depending on your preferies/style of play) but a disadvantage in certain situations.
auto-switch would be the exact same thing, simply from a different angle. It brings you comfort (when you switch in-fight anyways) but raises disadvantages in other situations.
Basically you could specify the gun-behavior when the clip is empty with these parameters: OFF/AUTO-RELOAD/AUTO-SWITCH
Why should we provide the possibility to make the game more comfortable for some players, but not for others?
Imo ET is the most tweakable game there is. You can modify everything from gameplay to graphics, why not increase the personalization?
