M79 Dual-fire mod
Closed, ResolvedPublic


M79 has a 2nd fire mod dedicated for shooting buckshot.
I was told by one of the devs that it's for the sake of realism, so that it sounds more like a real buckshot rather than regular 40mm grenade.
In my opinion functionalities realism > sound. This will make places that prevent meta-gaming to give out the M79, or at the very least the buckshot, especially PvP.

If you don't want to remove the function - I would suggest making a separate M79 that doesn't have this function, so people could use either the realistic-sounding one, or the realistic-acting one, depending on which one they prefer.

The engine doesn't support the possibility to fire both grenades and buckshot from the same barrel in the conventional way. Because buckshot in M79's played an important role in SOG we decided to take creative liberty and go for an unconventional solution instead of leaving the option out altogether.

Restricting buckshot is indeed the solution for when it's a matter of balance.
