Can someone make new reload animations for the the STG?

Basically dont have the soldat grip the magazine but merely flick the release button and let the mag drop to the floor?

No second hand in the picture at all just the slightly raised weapon and the falling magazine?

Off couse this can be applied to all the sub-machine guns & the bar?

It would actually look really cool on the thompson come to think of it :D

Just speaking from experience, and lots of it, generally magazines don't just fall out of weapons easily 50% of the time and I know this may sound crazy but you don't throw magazines away like in the movies. You keep them because you need them to reload later (bullets come in boxes, not magazines).

That, and if you pick up rounds from the enemy. You can take them and put them in your empty mags and viola, more ammunition that is usable for your gun.

Though i dont like the hand position atm. Its directly on the mag griping it. Id be afriad that i might pull it out while shooting... Maybe the hand should be just moved up some, where just hte last 2 fingers are on the mag.

Guys this is not supposed to be realistic. I had a feeling someone might call the realism factor but this is dods we're talking about :p

Its not about being realistic its about being cool?
