FireWeapon

From GECK

A function included in the GECK version 1.1.0.36.

Description

FireWeapon fires a projectile from any specified reference.

Syntax

[ActorRefID].FireWeapon WeaponID:ref

Example

Turret01REF.FireWeapon WeapGrenadeFrag

Object named Turret01 will fire a Frag Grenade.

Notes

  • The fired projectile should spawn in the middle of the ref and go straight out in the direction the ref is pointing, UNLESS it has a dummy node called "ProjectileNode" (the name is dependent on the weapon's data in the editor but "ProjectileNode" is the default). If the ref has such a node the projectile will come out of it instead.
  • If called on the player, and the player's currently-equipped weapon uses ammo, fireweapon will expend one shot's worth. FireWeapon will also use the spread of any equipped weapon instead of the spread of the firing weapon.
  • If called on the player, and the fired weapon is a Grenade-type weapon with Ammo Use set to 1, the player's weapon art will vanish. It'll reappear after unequipping and reequipping.
  • If the weapon has an enchantment, it will not take effect.
