A Lagomorphic Over-achiever
16th March 2003
I was wondering if in FH2 troops from the first-person perspective are going to hold each weapon differently (aside from the way each weapon was held in BF2). I was looking at screenshots from other mods, which are using the existing positions of holding weapons (one screenshot of a first-person view from a WWII mod for BF2 shows an MP40, but the left hand isn't holding the magazine. The left hand that was supposed to be holding the magazine end was off-position). Now I know these gun-holding positions would be used, but will there be any customized gun-holding positions for FH2?

this is mainly why we havnt posted any ingame images of 1st person weapons.
the mg42 is held by the bi pod in LMG mode, not by the barrel, the hot air from the cooling ports would burn your hands
I take what n0e says way too seriously

pmbf1942the mg42 is held by the bi pod in LMG mode, not by the barrel, the hot air from the cooling ports would burn your hands
not if you were wearing your asbestos gloves like the field manual says you should when you are handling a hot barrel.
oh, yeah, forgot about thew glovs, but, holding an MG42 by the bipod has less recoil, cause you pulling down harder

Yeah there's an entire series of short movies of a german reenactor firing an mg42 in different ways, saying what you should and wat you shouldn't do, i can't seem to find the link though.
