duration of reloading is shortened when reloading empty weapon while prone
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The duration of the reload procedure is extremly short when you are adding a magazine to your empty weapon while you are prone.

Occures only at the first execution after you switched to the prone stance.

Only tested with one assault rifle so far. {F19722}

Added: You can also effectively "reload cancel" by doing urban prone sideways (not down), and hitting "reload" right after starting to move back to "normal" prone. After the animation finishes, your empty weapon will be reloaded again, cutting reload time depending on the weapon down to about 1/2 seconds.

Good find, thanks! :) (will check it and add to the description when iam back home)

I'm calling this fixed. I think the others are on purpose and not feasible for an exploit.
