Harvesting not working in 3rd person

PS4 Pro

Game mode: both
Problem: mining and foraging barely working in 3rd person
Region: US

When mining and berry picking, in 3rd person, the swing of the pickaxe fails to yield any ore or stone, and when harvesting plant fiber the grabbing motion fails to activate. This is fixed temporarily by switching to 1st person and then to 3rd again, but after a few minutes reverts to yielding nothing.

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Its been happening since the beginning, mine in 3rd person.
