It would be nice to have a mouse look ability when on emplaced weapons such as fixed MG42's or even on 6 Pdr's so we don't need to get off the gun to see what's going on around us. This would make these weapons much more efficient in my opinion

A nice idea, but how would it make those weapons more efficient? You only have a certain cone of fire in a fixed position such as a MGNest so everything you see while looking around with the gun is just everything you can hit. :cool:

It would certainly help to be able to glance over the top of the shield on the 6lber, to organize your target selection, or spot infantry sneaking up. Or a left-right glance to keep from being flanked.

I agree, this should be put in if possible.

And can crouching for all mgs be enabled? Currently static MG34s do not let you crouch. The MG15s do, but not the 34s. I think all of the brit mgs let you crouch, too.

I like this idea alot, I mean why on earth should you have to exit the MG just to look around ?

You can crouch with MG34.

Yeah, IIRC you can, but your view doesn't get lowered. Just can't move the MG around when pressing [crouch], just like in all other MGs. But the idea is good. It would give a better overview to the user, and sometimes it would be quite safe to take a look back (although this should usually be your teammates job).

Ah, that's why. Nevermind on that, although it does give it the advantage of ducking yet still able to see where enemies are.
