It also doesn't always have to me lethal has it? You could be really badly burned and thus be near death and start "bleeding" so if you are not helped by a medic soon enough you still die.

Delays should only apply when switching weapons. Pulling out weapon A, firing it and instantly pullin out weapon B after it is the problem. Somebody walking around with a bazooka on his shoulder (should slow him down more then when running around with a pistol and drain more stanima more quickly) walking into a room full of enemies and being quick enough to turn 180 degrees and fire (you probably would already need to get lucky here! One shot and you are normally dead) then still has to ditch his bazooka by lowering it or quickly dropping it to the floor, then reach for his other arm, turn around and prepare to use it. Before the person is ready several seconds past (depending on the weapon switched from and switched to) which should be enough for the wounded and surviving people to shoot the bazooka guy.

In short: Make sure that weapons have a time delay for "holstering" and "unholstering" together with bazooka's not instantly killing but badly burning you unless you are perhaps looking with your face right into it and you should be all set up.

agreed..

although it would be still cool to see the delay, and the "clear!" just for that level of atmosphere.

The man with the bazooka should take a severe accuracy hit when running and even more while jumping and a lesser one while walking so as to not encourage jackassery(ya it's a real word :P) but instead a more realistic way of how it was shot in real life ie. crouching or prone. Furthemore, with a slightly heavier weapon(panzershreck/bazooka), the sensitivety while using it, could be half(or less) that of using a rifle to emphasize the weight and clunkiness(no better word) when inside a building or any confined space. A panzershrek at about 5.5 feet or the 4foot 6inch bazzoka is going to take a little more coordination and strength to manouver under such conditions.

As far as a time delay and a yell to "clear out!", that's why we have the F1-F8 or Q buttons. It's up to the user to warn people in advance.

Cadyshack;3300129Hmmm, I dont like the idea of killing backblast. Just picture someone charging into a room (maybe after smoke naded) turning around, and unleashing a zooka shot, which kills 3 people, then whips out pistol and waists the survivors. Guy charges into another room after loading, rinse and repeat. Also, AT weapons had a kick, so there was recoil, but it didnt really matter because they were 1 shot weapons.

Hmm, well, the backblast can be toned down, you don't have to have it deal instant death. And yes, Handheld Recoiless Rifles (Zooka, Shrek, Faust) did have a light kick, but not very powerful. Another idea I have, is when you fire the AT Rocket Launcher verticaly or angled, the backblast will reflect off the ground, and mildly dammage the user
