ASTW2 - Arctic's Simple Thirdperson Weapons 2.0

This addon is now OBSOLETE: Use ACT3: Arctic's Customizable Thirdperson (Weapons) 3.0 instead!

Unfortunately, killing is one of those things that gets easier the more you do it.

ASTW2 is the sequel to ASTW, the only previous third person addon on the Workshop. Inspired by games such as the ArmA: Armed Assault series, Metal Gear Solid (And particularly, MGSV), and the Grand Theft Auto (Particularly, GTA V) series, this weapon base and pack is like nothing you've seen before - guaranteed.

Rage_Panzer : Neo, I know what your problem is bud, it happened to me too, but I found a fix.

Go into the Client setting of ASTW2 in the Options tab in the Q-Menu.

From there, turn off the Forced Custom Camera setting.

The reason it causes your camera to bug out is because they're fighting over which is domniant over the camera view, so make sure you either have the Forced custom cam active, or your custom camera active. DO NOT ACTIVATE BOTH.

- FULL NPC SUPPORT!: Nearly all weapons, excluding melee weapons, can be used by NPCs. Have fun!
- Balance: All weapons have been thoroughly tested for a good combat experience. We know that nobody wants to die to something they can't control.
- Camera Integration: The camera system included is tuned for playability.
- True Scopes: Weapons with sniper scopes include the "True Scope" system, allowing them to work as one would expect from a proper game.
- Exceptional Variety: If you can think it, it's there. Antimateriel rifles, 75mm cannons, grenades, grenade launchers, heavy machine guns, assault rifles, .22 caliber pistols, even muskets, antique naval cannons, and wads of money... All at only 12mb! With over 250 weapons, there's bound to be something to fit your bill.
- Animation-Based Melee: Watch out for those models - where they hit is where they hurt you!
- Easier to work with than M9K: With fewer variables to tweak and no viewmodels to rig or align, even the newest modder should find it easy to add guns to the ASTW2 base.
- Immersive Modes: Just because it's tweaked for third person doesn't mean you can't play from your character's perspective!
- Reload Sounds: The holdtypes which are normally silent have custom reload sounds added to them.
- Proper Networking: Works properly on servers or high-lag environments.
- 3D HUD: With, like, cool stuff.
- Spawn Icons: Neat, huh?
- Customizable Camera Modes: With 5 aim camera styles, 4 passive camera styles, and a system for building your own camera, you can truly make your experience your own.
- Loads of Options: Configure and disable or enable almost anything you want.
- Bullets Come Out Of The Gun: Bullets come out of the gun, not your eyes. You'd think someone else would have done this before. A 3D crosshair makes sure you're always on target.
- vFire Integration: It Just Works! Burn, baby, burn!

- Switch Camera Sides: Use the command, "astw2_switch_sides" to change the side the camera is on. Works with OTS Close and OTS Far modes, as well as custom cam.
- Drop Weapon: Use the command, "drop" to drop and unload your current weapon.
- ENABLE FIRSTPERSON/FIRST PERSON: Type "astw2_camera_enabled 1;astw2_camera_aimmode 0;astw2_camera_passivemode 0" (No quotes) into your developer console. You can also use the options (Q->Options->ASTW2->Client).

Any way you can make a version of this without all the guns? I'm just here for the camera so I
can force the third person out of it. Trying to make a deathmatch gamemode setup for my friends
and I, and while I appreciate the generous amount of weapons, it dilutes the weapon pool so much that all of the fun guns get completely swamped in realistic boringness.
