Leaning QoL Improvements
Reviewed, NormalPublic


With current implementation of the leaning mechanic, it has become a leaning spam-fest - to the point where people bind their A-D strafe keys to also perform leaning automatically. It doesn't look authentic at all, and it's a major issue in PvP.

Disabling leaning while sprinting was an improvement, but it needs to be improved further. Leaning should not be a free action with no repercussions - there needs to be a drawback.

My suggestions on how to improve it:

  • Reduce movement speed while leaning. It could be somewhere between 30-50% decrease. This will discourage players from leaning at all times and it'll only be done when necessary.
  • Optionally, add stamina cost to leaning. This should be a small amount, but it would convey to the player the lack of comfort their character has while leaning.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce

Lean all the time.

People still lean walk?...
Other than to move the hitbox this has no purpose.

If you're walking and aiming your gun I'm pretty sure this slows you down.
I agree make this the same action. If you're peeking a wall you're not walking fast anyways.

Even without the lean walking though people still spam leaning in PVP. Most players don't fire a shot without leaning at the same time just because there is no real downside to it. Crouch, lean, spray. I definitely agree with hleV

@Geez bumping, this is still important. You can take pretty much any game with leaning mechanics as an example/inspiration (random one off the top of my head: PUBG).
