Proposal
If CoB doesn't let you trigger it with a ranged weapon equipped, then the buff shouldn't remain. when you switch weapons. Alternatively, allow it to trigger with a ranged weapon equipped and remove the exploit. i.e it should work for everyone or no-one, and not be acceptable by weapon swapping.
Justification
There are certain abilities in the game which are intended for certain professions i.e carbineer suppression fire can only be used when using a carbine - good.

If you try to use CoB with a ranged weapon equipped, it won't work. If however you equip a melee weapon, use CoB and then switch to a ranged weapon, the CoB buff will remain on. It shouldn't work this way.
Motivation
The issue is ranged classes are using a workaround to being more tanky. CoB is intended to be used as a melee and a tank. Using this exploit is giving some people a big advantage and shouldn't be possible.
My views on the matter. It's an unfair exploit. Let's make it work for everyone or work for no-one.

I was speaking about this the other day, maybe yesterday. I think it's fair tbh. If it's not intended then I agree, let every ranged class use it or fix the exploit.
