Question & Answers
Problem with my pistols...
I have dual pistols, and I can equip 2 of the same one, but everytime I leave the homestead, it switches one of my pistols to one I dont like. This wouldn't usually be a problem, but because I use the french coat pistols, switching to any other robs me of one more shot. Is there a way to stop the switch? Or are we just not allowed to have 2 of the same pistols anywhere outside the homestead?

I've been having the same problem. I did it with both Double-Barrel Pistols and the French Coat Pistols... and it keeps switching my second pistol to that silver Pitcairn-something pistol EVERY TIME I fast travel... or rather, after I encounter a loading screen. It seems like the kind of bug that's only going to get fixed with another update, I'm afraid... Haven't heard anywhere for a way to remedy the problem...
Answer from: MAD_SNOOGANZ
Also the strange part is when you equip the pistols you want and when it switches If you turn of the game then turn it back on the pistols you've selected are in your holsters. Also when I equip the Italian pistols after previously equipping the French coat pistol instead of it switching to the pitcairn pistol it switches to the French coat.... Something to look into I guess

The only way you can carry doubles that I've found thus far, is by wearing the KIDD outfit. This allows for a total of 4 pistols to be carried on your person, with doubles given to each one. I carry double Royal Pistols and double Pitcairn's.
Answer from: AlfaWolf1776
I am have the same issue. Every time I dual wield my Royal pistols and fast travel, or leave the homestead it converts back to Pitcairn pistol. It is kind of a wired bug/glitch. I have look at other posts of the same problem going on, and still no fix has been found for it.

Also note that I actually play the PS3 version, but I haven't seen this bug reported to be happening to anyone else on the PS3 so I just posted it here. The fact that it's happening on both versions should be mentioned to Ubisoft as well.

Having the same problem, but My secondary gun becomes the first gun you get in the game! Fix this ubisoft!!!
Answer from: uradoosh
The game automatically makes your 2nd pistol the best in your inventory that is NOT selected. so if you select the French Coat Pistol the game will automatically make your 2nd gun the Royal Pistol. thus, giving you 4 shots
Answer from: D-Knight
It is a bug for sure. After 1st game loading for a fast travel or any other reason the 2nd gun will become the prev equiped one. After the 2nd loading the 2nd gun will disapear totaly and you have to re equip from home stead or a store. At least that what i am facing. I am also using PS3?

Answer from: connorfriend
The only way is to dress connor into default outfit
Answer from: zazozavara
Connorfriend is right though I have another solution. I found out that if you equip a crafted gun (royal; italian; navy) the glitch will occur. But if you use a pair of guns that is bought from the shop or from the DLC (Pirate and Scottish Flintlocks) you will have two matching despite fast travelling. But if you decide to equip your most prefered guns you will be able to have a normal pair ONLY with the default.
