Dpad wont arm weapons

So after runt fight
When I quit the game and reload
Due to dinner and such
When it loads up I can not pull weapons
Nothing works
The d pad works for map
But will not arm weapons at all
Finally deleted game all together after 3 months of starting over and same results
This is on ps4
I think it’s a great game
I enjoy the challenge of fighting
Just can not progress without weapons arming
Sad really
Wanted to finish

Can you remap your standard controls to other parts? And try if they work that way.
