It's a gimmick for sure, but a logical one. If you have to keep firing your weapon and you are surrounded but don't kill them off,the reload stun lets you finish your reload and dump some extra damage in before enemies can react.

(besides enemies that started doing a stomp attack, which STILL is cued up and non interruptible faster 6 hours but that's a minor thing)
