[Suggestion] Why don't we have the primary weapon on our back when we switch to other weapons/tools?

    I guess this is an old question...
    I've always wished we have this feature.
    Even PS1 had it.

    Because it's just more detail to model; more polygons to lower your frame rate.
    Because backpacks are the most prominent means to distinguish one class from another.

    IIRC the devs decided against it because it would mean more objects they'd have to track. They said that doing so would have drastically reduced the maximum number of players they could have on a cont at once.

    Next thing you'll ask for, having to open doors to get in and out of vehicles. *giggles*

    i don´t see how that is neccesary? for one you don´t see yourself not carring a weapon
    neither do i see much of a advantage in seeing other peoples weapons on the back and especialy in big crowds that detail goes under pretty quickly ...

    Give me a grappling hook and a hover board and I'm set.

    *thumbs up* signaling good to go to driver.

    This sounds incredibly fun. Even better, let LA do it with aircraft ala Kit Cloudkicker.
