Reloading[edit | edit source]

Sprinting[edit | edit source]

Crouching[edit | edit source]

The weapon fire position now more closely follows the actual player position when crouching and un-crouching. Shooting while leaving the crouched stance will no longer fire bullets from full standing height until the animation is complete. Crouch does not interrupt emotes and is disabled when emoting.
