Weapon on your back can be used while handcuffed
New, WishlistPublic


I had an M4 on my back, and it was set as a hot key. My friend then handcuffed me and when i pressed the hot key for the M4, I was able to shoot the weapon while it was on my back, and it shot into the ground. My friend had a Mosin and he did it as well when he was handcuffed. I'm not sure if this works with other weapons.

This is not a bug or glitch. I heard this was also possible in the mod. Basically you can pick your weapon but only fire at your feet behind you. The only way to kill someone like this is if the guy is crouched.
We have once a duel between 2 handcuffed friends :)
Was epic!

For me this is absolutely a bug and needs to get fixed.

Why this should be a bug? Nothing prevent you from using something while being handcuffed, even if you can't aim you still have a little chance de kill your opponent. This just give a chance to a victim to put down his aggressor, but honnestly I have not heard someone succed at this.

I think it's a bug becauseyou can use your weapon with the keyboard hotkeys (if assigned to the weapon) but not with your inventory.

If you go that way there is plenty of bug like reading a book or map only works with hotkeys but not with your inventory ^^.
To be logical, you should only acces a weapon with hotkey if that weapon is in your pant and maybe your shirt.
