Primary Pistols and Primary Melee Weapons

Update: Now features dedcated animations for primary swords, primary pistols and primary autopistols.
This includes tactical animations, armory animations, starting screen, skyranger drop and photobooth poses.

Requires War of the Chosen Expansion and the WotC Community Highlander.

Please don't use this together with my "Primary Pistols" mod. The mods collide with each other.

This mod generates primary variants of all pistols and melee weapons in the game (except ripjacks and shard gauntlets).

They are unlocked together with their secondary counterpart.

It supports all DLC and XPack weapons and every melee weapon or pistol of any mod,
since the the primary weapons are generated at game initializtion from whatever you have installed.

Additionally this mod incorporates the Pistol Upgrades mod which means it adds
visual attachments for the vanilla pistols (primary and secondary).

Primary Pistols have a clip size of 6
and they provide +1 mobility and -20% detection radius and +1 damage and a slightly better range table than secondary pistols(can be disabled or modified in XComPrimarySecondaries.ini).

Also adds a "Empty secondary" item that grants a 15% mobility bonus.

Specialist, Grenadier and PsiOperative are enabled to use primary melee weapons, primary pistols and templar sidearms.
Sharpshooter can use primary melee weapons and Rangers Primary Pistols/Sidearms.
This is not fully tested and could be buggy for abilities like supression or certain passive abilities dont apply correctly like Blademaster e.g. I dont full support the vanilla classes because these classes are not meant to be used with PS.
There are mod classes that are meant to be used with PS and their abilities are optimized to work with them.
Also you can't use ranged abilities with swords of course.

Credits to:
Krakah for the pistol attachments.

Reduce Armory Clutter causes this mod not to work properly.
Some mod added weapons have no fireing sound. Please ask the mod author of these mods to put the sound in the weapon animation.

Whenever I equip someone with a primary pistol, it multiplies at the end of the battle.

Hey is there a version of this mod without the animations for primary pistols and melees? i really enjoy the mod but i believe there was a time where the secondaries were just holstered and i prefered that visually alot is there maybe like an old version that i could use? I know its less realistic if the dude walking around with a sword on his back has to cowboyquickdraw his pistol before shooting it one handed but i always liked that alot

Yeah, I forgot this is why I stopped playing my campaign, cause it was getting tedious to have to do this.
I always clear the active squad, then click all the "make utility/weapons/armour available" buttons, then rebuild my squad and equip what I want. Which means everyone not in the active squad gets given an autopistol.
This was also annoying when I got the UFO encounter, and then when they throw more soldiers in from the "reserve", they all have autopistols.

Pistols aren't showing in the primary loadout for me. Anyone else having this problem?

I'm rather suspicious that this is the mod causing my game to crash anytime I fire the Hunter's Rifle on my sniper. I just don't know why it would be caused here, but none of my other mods should be touching it either.

@phil, read the description of the other mod

So dumb question, is this safe to have enabled at the same time as "True Primary Secondaries"?

Dont have a "Empty secondary" and something is wrong, since I cant equip a sword as main?!
Any fix?

Anyone else having this keep trying to equip autopistols on to your guys randomly? It's super annoying to go through my armory to keep re equiping rifles on specialists. REALLY annoying when you send them on a covert op and it gets ambushed and your guys have freaking autopistols because you didn't check EVERYONES weapons before sending them out on a covert op eveyr time.
