Description

I quite often stop running to find that my character has lowered his weapon even though I have not pressed the 'Toggle Raise Weapon' key(s). This happens even if unbind the "Raise Weapon" and "Toggle Raise Weapon" actions from any keys.

This seems to occur after running whilst also making lots of sideways movements. I've yet to determine whether it only happens after starting from a crouch but I am almost certain that's the case.

Thanks for the video and possible repro - my bug which I filed much earlier is the same basically, but I was a bit perplexed about the reason, thus I will add your comment/description to the earlier bug with some longer history and mark this duplicate.

Ah nice - one, hadn't spotted 1911. Will update the youtube comments to redirect people there.

Since apparently my bug applies to a different anim I'll re-open yours.

It happens most when you side step/strafe just before you stop running.

It can be reproduced, but not reliably. Certainly you'll always end up with a "stuck" lowered weapon when you most need it.

Adding info from duplicate ticket comments:

- if you press fire while running you can apparently be sure to have a raised weapon 95% of the time
- if you side-step before stopping from a run, you'll have your weapon lowered most likely
