Third personshoulder mode it works online
I discovered this handy little trick on a forum on a website, I will warn you though its hard as ♥♥♥♥ to aim because the projectiles always go slightly to the right. To get started what you do is pause the game in a game go idle to so your teammates arent waitng or getting killed trying tohelp you. Then open the console (tild key) it looks funny it has two symbols one on top one on bottom the top one looks like this (~) the bottom one looks like this (`) push that and a window will open up thats the console. You cant cheat online using this by the way because sv_cheats resets its value to 0 (there are other ways to cheat anyways). Next, you type in thirdperson three options should come up there are thirdperson thirdperson_maya and thirdpersonshoulder select the last one. It may work the first time it may not if it dosent repeat the process, it will always revert when you die or complete a chapter. Have fun! let me know what you think or any questions Ill do my best to answer them.

Everyone already knows this. And you can adjust the crosshair to put it in the spot where the gun is aiming

Just put the height over your head (higher than coachs since he is the tallest) and put the offset to 3. If you set it right, the gun will aim perfect.

Mine is Bind alt c_thirdpersonshoulder.. and I can switch back and forth in game instantly.

thanx guys and no not everyone knows this I met two people who didnt even know about the console command Ill try the suggestions though because when I tried it I was like damn the aiming sucks.

I just put the crosshair over the gun and high so nothing blocks the view
Worst thing is when your surrounded headshots wont be too great until your use to it.

I figured I could get used to the bullets aiming to the right damn it was funny to watch me play and not being able to hit anything and to make things worse at the time I screwed up my crosshair so that it wouldnt come back it was hilarious trying to aim like that with no crosshair.

i still can't do it, and how do you adjust your crosshair?

I use the resident evil third person mod and it works perfeclty for me. All you have to do is press v and it swtiches, and it shoots where you aim instead of shooting off a bit to the right and much better then having to use the console command

There are mods for this

The mods don't help. Doing it manually is best.

These are the codes.
I would say test with the offset and height until it is to your liking.

cam_idealpitch # (Leave at 0 or the crosshair won't match the shooting direction)

cam_idealyaw # (Same as above)

cam_collision # (Whether the camera collides with walls so as not to see through them.)

cam_ideallag # (How much the camera waits before moving after the mouse is moved. Best
leave it at 0.)

cam_idealdelta #

c_thirdpersonshoulderdist #

c_thirdpersonshoulderaimdist # (Which distance the crosshair will be aligned at to shoot.)

c_thirdpersonshoulderoffset # (How much to the left or to the right the camera is.)

c_thirdpersonshoulderheight # (Similar to above only it controls height instead.)

c_thirdpersonshouldersnapto # (Best is 1.)

Forgot to add. No matter how you set them, they will always be off. Because as they get closer, you need to start aiming with the gun barrel, takes some getting use to. Long distance is crosshair, close is gun barrel.

thanx munkee ill have to put that huge list of commands into notepad and play with them. I also was messing with a custom vocalizer but I cant get it to work only because of the sv_sheats and some checker that kicks me from a game but i can get them to work single player any ideas?
[†]Munkee_King[†] Sep 1, 2014 @ 7:44pm 
if you put c_thirdpersonshoulder in console, it isn't a cheat. Works online too, just not versus since that would be unfair seeing a charger or hunter around the corner.

Hi leroy what kind of adjustments would you like? To answer your question about thirdpersonshooulder read munkee knights comment thats a great explanation if you dont understand how to open the console just like I said in game (weither on menu or in a game) you would hit this funny looking key ~ thats called the tild key. You can also go to the options menu and under multiplayer select the colorblind mode crosshair only!! If you do the whole game I find that you can get a headache after awhile lol.

Also some great addon content for crosshairs my personal favorites are, Crosshair by H.se and high visibility crosshair by lemec but again those are my favorites go with one that suits your playing style.
