Can't move while reloading launchers
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In ARMA 2 you can walk and jog while reloading a launcher.

In ARMA 3, once you hit reload with a launcher out, you can't move until it's finished.

Consider this scenario in A2: You peek over a ridge, take a shot with the launcher, turn around, and move back down the ridge while reloading the launcher to use again in another position or save for later.

In ARMA 3 this is not possible, you'd either get stuck on the ridge reloading, exposed to enemy fire, or have to move away before reloading.

Steps To Reproduce

Fire a launcher and reload. Attempt to move while the reload animation is playing.

Additional Information

I would expect that you should be able to jog or at least walk in standing/crouched stance, as in ARMA 2.

It's a simple necessity that you should be able to reload and move, the same as ARMA 2. You will get caught in situations where you started a reload, and an enemy appears out of cover or flanking. You need to move fast, but you'd be locked in place until the animation finishes

The launchers are pretty heavy.

Try it in real life

I dare you


Are you Russian? I bet people can actually use RPGs in Russia.

That's where you are wrong. VBS 2 2.0 is a simulator. This is a game based on a simulator. Furthermore you could do this in ARMA 1 and ARMA 2 which are more like a sim than ARMA 3 at present.

Nice attempted troll. It's arguably easier to load a launcher compared to a rifle while moving, because the rocket is larger and easier to maneuver into the launcher.

See guys, I can play the trolling game too.

Sorry, this gets a downvote:
Reloading a launcher is a complex process, unlike reloading an assault rifle. It should not be possible to do while moving around. If you need to get away quickly after a shot, don't reload or go prone, which is now actually possible compared to the beginning of the Alpha.
