I don't know if it's supposed to be a secret or not, but you often find out too late when an enemy has incendiary/bouncy ammo. A colored outline guns to indicate ammo type would be nice.

I think you just have to see them pick it up or otherwise you wont know, the same way you dont know exactly how much ammo or durability a enemies weapon has. I think its better to leave it a secret, that way it makes you have to pay more attention to all players and their weapons to really plan for the situation. the same way how you can hide the grenades, mines, shuriken's, etc (also like in real life you could hide these things from and enemy as well where as an entire katana wouldn't be as easy to conceal)

It's pretty easy to pay attention to other players. Some players can even pay attention to how many bullets their opponents have left! Paying attention to what type of ammo they pick up wouldn't be hard.

I don't see how anyone can keep track of every single thing that happens in a match. There could be bouncy bullets in a gun that goes unnoticed until it's brandished against you. If all of you are telling me that you can keep track of every gun modification used in a match of 8 players scrambling around, while fighting some fights yourself, then I would like to know how you manage that.

The only time I can completely keep my attention on someone is when I have nothing else to worry about, which can be rare.

After thinking about it, I actually agree that there should be an indicator for special ammo just like there is an indicator for laser sights. I thought that a glow around the weapon is not a bad idea, But unlike the 3x2 texture tiny texture of the laser sight, It's very easy to spot. But it's still an acceptable idea. My idea, However, Is to change the color of the magazine and the laser sight if attached. Here are some demonstrations

The only problem I thought about is that texture makers should make additional textures for every type of ammo.
