Character keeps walking for a bit when lowering the weapon while walking
Reviewed, WishlistPublic

Description

If you walk (slowly) and then lower your weapon, your character keeps walking for about 3 seconds.
This isn't just annoying, but a real gamebreaker at times.
PLEASE fix this.

Update with video:

Aside from the fact that it's annoying on its own, the occuring situations are a lot worse:
Players lower their weapon, keep moving and uninentionally leave cover or are unable to quickly flee when the situation requires it.

A serious question (not wanting to provoke):
What makes it hard to fix this?
Is the animation itself flawed and would require new mocaping?

it is more of a configuration/animation-link issue; the animations are here and well done, it is "only" a matter of properly linking "the player is running forward -> lowering his weapon -> animation of soldier running AND lowering -> link to stoppedLoweringAnimation if the player stops".

I agree this one is quite important!

@razazel I'd like to bring this issue up again because it's been bugging me and many others countless of times.
