What effect does the “loading” weapon property have in practical terms?
In the absence of the property, why would it be assumed that a PC could fire more than once per action (firing once would be one action)?
The scenario I’m picturing is where a PC has action, bonus action, and reaction on a turn. It would seem that a PC could fire 3 times.
In essence, this property doesn’t seem to make any difference (at least that I can see).
