Character not following viewing direction

I had tried to play a few games of squads. when the round started i would only be able to look left or right, i wasn’t able to turn around. when i started to move my characters orientation was locked in one direction. normally if i hold w and move my mouse left/right the characters direction would follow that change, now if i want to change my soldiers direction(for example: while sprinting) i have to sight in with my primary, change my direction, then continue.

I am not sure if this is just a change to the controls or if it is a bug, any help would be appreciated.

TLDR: the only way i can change my characters direction is by sighting in
