Coax needs to be fired with right mouse button for vehicles.

Recommended Posts

The title, basically.  I don't believe there has been any comment on this.

 

Please make it so you can RIGHT CLICK and fire your coax.

 

Switching to coax, having to unload a main round to fire your coax is ridiculous.

 

It has been like this for a very long time and makes playing vehicles tedious.  Not enough attention has been paid to vehicles.  

 

I want to be able to have an AP/HEAT/HESH/ATGM ready to fire without having to load it after shooting COAX!

 

Another thing.

 

Why was there a mod 2 years ago that made amphibious vehicles possible, but nearly 3 years later  there is nothing official?

I've had the same issue with armor. I certainly don't like having to reload. I'm not sure though about having it on a dedicated button. I know that some vehicles might have a dedicated trigger for their gunners but others don't rather having a toggle between the main gun and the coax.

 

Luckily, it seems that the devs have a pretty good record of upgrading existing features every once in a while. Give it some time and I'm sure we will be seeing an overhaul of the armor in game.

 

Like you said, it would be nice to see a bit more attention paid to vehicles. I can't be the only guy that hates that the gunner sight in the m1a2 is from the battle sight rather than the main optic mounted on the roof of the vehicle.

Yeah. 

 

I think most vehicles don't have a right button for MG and a left button for cannon for a reason. What if you accidentally pressed the wrong finger and fired the cannon in close proximity to your own troops instead of the MG? At least the Leopard has a distinct switch that says MG or cannon that you have to flip before you fire. We want the game to be accurately depicted I say. That being said you don't have to reload the cannon after switching from MG of course.

Must be a bigger issue at hand here, most static weapons (ground or vehicle based) have the cock charging handle or reload spg 7 round animation regardless of the fact that you just cocked or reloaded. Hopefully this will be resolved.

Yeah it's really annoying when you pick up the 50 cal and spend 3 seconds cocking the handle while you are taking fire. It's unrealistic because ammo is already in the chamber ready to go. You don't waste ammo like that IRL.
