Party members still switch weapon sets when charmed

Question

Hey guys, this is still happening. Really annoying.

 

It happened twice with me, fighting the Fampyrs in lvl 8 of Od Nua . Almost always the wizard, switching from wand to pistol.

 

v 1.0.5.0567 here

why do you think this is a bug? Wouldn't a dominated party member logically switch to the best weapon to turn on you with?

 

If it was me and I wanted to avoid charmed/dominated party members turning on me I'd equip them with nothing but fists before the fight

Because they don't do it intelligently and with a purpose. They just do it all the time regardless of circumstances.

 

If they swapped weapons intelligently based on what is best to turn on you, it would be a killer A.I. feature.

You know what is funny? This still happens as of 3.0x. I bet this could be abused, if you know you're going up against enemies that can charm put either a very weak weapon or even fists in our second slot and watch the effectiveness of the charm be reduced.
