Handling Ladders in ArmA is not fluid.
Reviewed, LowPublic



1.) When approaching Ladders we still have to use the action command to climb them. Why not like in any other game?

2.) When going for a ladder with a lowered gun it still takes time to climb it because of the shouldering.

3.) When in a hurry, you always have to stop to climb a ladder - there are always the 5 seconds until you actually climb (5 secs can differ between life and death).

Steps To Reproduce

Go for a ladder in different approaches at different speeds.

Best viewed, if you want to get up somewhere quickly.

Additional Information


to 1.) Look at ladder and walk towards it. Walk forward = Climb up, walk backward, climb down, vault = drop from Ladder

to 2.) lowered gun should not be shouldered - gunstraps are there to let the weapon hang there and have your hands free.

to 3.)
walk to a ladder -> soldier should shoulder his weapon, because he isnt in a hurry.
run to a ladder -> soldier should let the gun hang by its strap and quickly grab the railing to climb fast.

Btw.: pistol storage should be faster aswell. The default is pretty slow.
