Help Needed: Modifying Weapon Animations (Demoman)
Situation: I have modeled and rigged a grenade launcher for the demoman and default animations load properly; however, I need two things changed:

1. I need the cylinder to rotate twice as much as it does currently because I have half as many chambers (I have 3, down from the original 6).

2. The gun folds open in a forward direction where 'weapon_bone_1' is placed but I need it to fold down to the side (like opening a revolver).

Is there a way to change these values in my mdldecompiler.qc?
Is there a way to assign values to the bones to influence the animations?
Do I need to make custom animations?
Will the workshop accept custom animations OR will they accept an items that requires them to modify the animations?

Thanks for any help. I've been searching forums for hours with nothing close to an answer.

No
No
Yes
Maybe

Avoid requiring custom animations as much as possible - it is not certain that valve will not accept, but it's far more work for them to implement a weapon with custom animations compared to one which relies on existing animations
