YouTube - Forgotten Hope 2 Teaser 1 The tommy gunner is holding the weapon like he's leaning to the side or something. Is this just how it looks in Fh2 or was it something they did in the video? Im just curious about it

The thomspon is at an angle from the hip because its more natural to hold it like that because it has a pistol front grip and a huge friggin drum magazine. Its straight when aiming down the sights.

EDIT: god damn this post jumping!

OK, maybe they didn't "edit" the video. I know it wont effect gameplay, but i was curious.

I don't know what you're getting at.

He's just curious as to why the soldier is holding the thompson at an angle as opposed to the normal (and proper) straight up style.

There's no real "proper" way to hold it when around your stomach. Just make sure it's ready to go to the hip or up to your eye for the iron-sights. Also think about how your arms work they sway and follow an arc and kind of rotate around your elbows when they're around your stomach. You don't bring up your weapon in a straight line 45* from the horizon.

Hoooooowever now that I looked at it for the 3rd time, it looks kind of annoying.

Why can't anyone at least attempt to guess that the animations for the tommygun in 1P is not fully configured in that video... ?

Allthough I believe they are

We are doing that by critiquing. Because if they aren't fully configured then we're just reinforcing the fact. If they are, well, then we are allowed to suggest and critique.
