Standard gather mission
Orlock Deadeye Leader can only use carry if they have a weapon in hand.
Tried all iterations. Can't carry at all if both hands empty. Can't carry 2nd item if free hand is empty.

Discovered by carrying whilst autogun equipped, couldn't carry 2nd item (carry option just didn't appear when next to item).
Put 1st item down to check if deadeye could only carry 1 item, but could not pick the 1 item back up.
Re-equipped autogun, picked up 1st item, couldn't pick up 2nd. Equipped autopistol in free hand and then was able to carry 2nd item.

Lots of wasted AP to make it work.... glad the numbskull AI walked in the other direction!!
