  • Automatic reloading by Auto-Loader will activate the bonus on all non-active guns, given that each individual gun isn't fully loaded at the time of the kill.
  • Reloading by Gunzerking will not activate the skill.


  • A "locked and loaded" firearm is one which is ready to fire; in modern usage, to "lock and load" is to prepare for imminent action. The expression was popularized by John Wayne in the 1949 war film Sands of Iwo Jima.
