0003390: Make server transmit correct ammo counts to clients to correct ammo count desyncs
Zandronum has many bugs that can cause weapon desyncs on the client:

The biggest issue with them is that all ammo counts are predicted clientside and are never corrected, unless the client picks up ammo or properly shoots desynced weapons in a way to manually correct the ammo count. This causes HUGE confusion to the desynced players.

These desyncs could be made much less fatal if the server were to tell clients periodically or during shooting what their actual ammo count is.
No tags attached.
