Post [Added] Faster weapon switching
Is this an improvement to an already-existing feature, or a new feature entirely?
Improvement
If an improvement, what original feature is it improving upon?
Weapon switch speed.
How would this work?
by having the weapons switch twice as fast.
Can you give an example in how useful this feature would be?
This will make it easier by allowing you to quickly change weapon.
This is useful because most people have to scroll through their weapons and most of the time get killed in that process.
Although for a balance, the origional switching speed can be applied to heavy weapons such as Plasma Cannon and Mass Driver and also Beacons.
Code

^ This code could also have another 0 tic frame to make it a little faster.

AGREED. Oh lordy, this is needed so badly. When you're firing a sniper at someone, then he runs up in your face and you fumble for your shotgun for 5 seconds, reading the names on the bottom, and when you finally have it you're at 15% health. You fire, only one pellet hits, he laughs, he shoots you dead. NOTHING IS MORE RAGE-INDUCING.

Same goes for fumbling for C4s when you're raiding a base, and switching to a good gun when you're trying to defend it.

1+ to Dark for suggesting this.

OMG, AGREED! This is exactly what is needed in AoW 2! I hate having to die because it takes forever to switch to another weapon.

EDIT: Scratch that, but I still agree though to allow faster switching of weaker weapons.

Honestly I don't see the need for this. its a matter of knowing where your weapons are, having the right one out and understanding when to switch

I agree w. Stalin. It's just like hiding the plasma cannon w. Smg.

I agree, but ONLY for weaker weapons.

Agreed, since lighter weapons should be easier to pull out than heavier weapons, like Mass Driver or Plasma Cannon.

On second thought, yes. Stuff like the Pistol, SMG, Shotgun, Repairgun, etc. should switch quickly, but heavier things like snipers and cannons shouldn't.

We have the pistol and fist and stuff like that deselect faster. Would it be a good idea to have this applied to some other weapons too?

The knife? Fists and chainsaw have kinda phased it out. If you were able to quickly swap to it when the chance arises to slice someone, why not? Not sure, though.

Another one could be the SMG to be a tad faster to switch, not as fast as handguns, but that might be pushing it.

I don't know about the SMG, since it's been upped in effectiveness. Knife, certainly. I'll do that...

shotgun is effective too, and so is rifle. And that's like the low-tier weapons. So I guess nothing else needs fast weapon switching.

The shotgun would definitely benefit from a fast select/deselect however. And so would the SSG, actually.

They would, but we don't want that to happen.

With the knife switch going faster, I'm closing this.

So we don't want strictly close-range weapons to be fast to switch to and from? o_O

Post Re: [Added] Faster weapon switching
The point of close and short range weapons is to have different effective ranges. If you had the ability to very quickly switch from a sniper rifle to a shotgun would remove such possible counterattacks.

Post Re: [Added] Faster weapon switching
Well, the average change in switch speed differs with weapons, it’s ~0.3 second in average, at least that’s what I heard. Each gun has a different knifing speed too, depending on the switch animation, so yeah, theoretically Fast Switch should improve the knifing speed. But I don’t think anyone credible ever tested it.
