Main syntax: Reload first found muzzle that needs reloading (with some inconsistencies).
Alternative syntax: this syntax allows to reload given muzzle with given magazine while playing proper animation. If param is omitted or is empty string, default value is used. The default behaviour is to find the best matching magazine for the provided muzzle from the pool of available magazines. If specific magazine is requested, the reload will fail if unit has run out of this type of magazines. If an empty array [] is given, the behaviour is similar to pressing the "Reload" key. The command reloads the given muzzle but does not select it. In case of throwable muzzles, each throwable has its own muzzle, they are autoreloaded after throw. Using reload on the throwable muzzle will just swap throwable for another one of the same type from inventory.
