"Quickdraw" sidearm by dropping primary weapon (secured to vest)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I would very much like to see the primary weapon disappear from the soldiers back. The primary rifle nowadays is in many cases secured to the vest with a clip so the soldier can easily put away/drop his weapon (like in the idle walk animation).

The sidearm\pistol is supposed to be a quick resort if reloading your primary weapon is no viable option, however previously in ARMA2 and now ARMA3 Beta, drawing your sidearms takes precious seconds.

I would love to see ARMA3 have an animation and procedure where a soldier switching to his sidearm (possibly by keystroke) 'drops' his weapon, but it sticks to his vest at chest height, and then simultaneously draws his pistol.

One of the anim dev's said a while back they looked at this but said they had issues with implementation and it being consistent through various stances from a design point of view.
