well alot of time when playing coop is spent as INF, yeah?
When I'm new in a bigger community alot of time will be spent as infantry usually. When I play with close friends we do SF stuff on foot mostly.
Anyway I was thinking about more interaction with the guns, like gun malefunctions, different reloads, rackin'.
In the popular(read mandatory) mod ACE your gun can jam but its just text telling you and you click fix jam and you're done.
You know how some games lets you manually cock your shotgun or pull the bolt, I love that feeling and I want more of it.
What I tought would be cool is a dynamic and ofcourse animated system.
Making the guns more interactive, not just aiming and shooting.
kind of like in magicka where after a while you learn combinations for certain spells and you do them faster and faster... if you had controls to do various things with your gun, you would get efficient with it.
These are just examples of how it could be control wise, Im sure u could have more or less steps aswell, gotta have a balance where its not too much tho.
G release magazine.
R (hold or Press) grip/release magazine / holster grab new magazine
F lock bolt or whats it called lul
T Cock/rack the gun. (could perhaps have mouse movments too, T to grab etc)
Scroll down/move mouse to move magazine between in the gun/pulled out/holsterd in your vest.
Space (toggle or hold) inspect gun with mouse movment, similar to alt looking.
(so that you can hold space and turn the mouse and see if you have a double feed or wtf is up)
Notice that I give multiply button suggestions for actions, its hard to know what would work good without testing, hopefully you'll get the idea tho.
Ok so a tactical reload would look something like
R (grab your mag)
G (release the mag)
Pull/scroll (mag out)
Pull/scroll (move mag/hand down)
F/R (holster the mag, perhaps that would be R's function in this position)
F/R (Grab a new magazine, perhaps that would be R's function in this position)
Up/scroll (bring new mag up)
Up/scroll (push the new mag in)
R (release your grip of the mag)
a speed reload you could just drop the mag by releasing and grabbing a new mag.
Ok so now malefunctions become more intressting aswell.
You might have to lock the bolt back pulling your mag out etc.
rack a few times w/e. different malefunctions and it can be % random how hard your gun lock up.
Ofcourse it could all be toggable with game difficulty or a separate option if you dont want to do things manually.
you might have to strip it down..
At the very least I want the option for manual bolt action.
What do you people think of the general idea? more manual things. interaction. (dont get locked up on my specific controls or suggestions)
