WotC Primary Pistols

In 1 collection by Musashi
Musashis WotC Mods

If you want a version using the templar animations and support all weapons (xpack, dlc and modded) look here Primary Secondaries

This mod adds pistols as primary weapons

Works for XCom 2 War of the Chosen.

The pistols must be bought separatly from normal pistols.

All pistols are fully upgradable.

So whats inside?

Primary Pistol
Primary Laser Pistol (You need [Long War Laser Pack - WotC (unofficial)] for this)
Primary Mag Pistol
Primary Plasma Pistol
Primary Sawed-Off Shotgun
Primary Mag Shorty
Primary Shadowkeeper
Enhanced Primary Shadowkeeper
Powered Primary Shadowkeeper

Why do i need a separate mod for this/What does this mod actually do?

  • It allows classes to define the pistol category as primary weapon category, without having a soldier with bare hands

  • It tweaks the pistols so that the default position is in the hands of your soldier and not in the holster.

  • It tweaks the left hand position so that its on the pistol grip and not in the air or on the barrel in tactical combat (not perfect but the best i am capable of).

  • In loadout this left hand can't be postioned atm so i recommend using the 'laid back' personality where the soldier holds the weapon upwards.

  • It tweaks the soldiers shooting animation so the soldier don't pull and put back the pistol. Its in his hand all the time.

  • Pistols give +3 mobility

  • Pistols have a clip size (6 per default) and pistol shots and perks consume ammo

Rangers and Specialist can use primary pistols out of the box.

How can my custom class use primary pistols?
You can modify any class using primary pistols by adding this to the class defintion in XComClassData.ini

+AllowedWeapons=(SlotType=eInvSlot_PrimaryWeapon, WeaponType="pistol")

to have the class starting with pistols you need to change the loadout e.g
;+SquaddieLoadout="SquaddieMyFancyClass" +SquaddieLoadout="SquaddieMyFancyClassWithPrimaryPistol"

and in XComGameData.ini
[XComGame.X2ItemTemplateManager] +Loadouts=(LoadoutName="SquaddieMyFancyClassWithPrimaryPistol", Items[0]=(Item="Pistol_CV_Primary"), Items[1]=(Item="InsertMyFancyClassSecondryItemHere"))

If you are not comfortable with editing ini file and stuff don't worry, i am sure classes will be released in the future that use primary pistols.

The laser pistol effects seem broken?

Sub to "Missing Packages Fix + Resource", this should fix the problem.

IS there a way to updated where all six on the pistol would work cause I do use 6 slots on all my guns?

I was using the Primary Secondaries Mod, but unable to equip the Shadowkeeper as a primary for my Soldier. Subscribing to this mod fixed that.

You can use the xcom pistols enhanced mod (non-LW2 version) to get secondary pistols in LW2.

@ Musashi: Correction: I was able to make appropriate settings in the XCOMPRimarySecondaries.ini. Good work!

@ Musashi: I do not play with primary pistols, the extension of the secondary pistols is important to me. Does your mod also increase the slot count of the secondary pistols or only the primary pistols?

It’s not needed when you use primary secondaries.
