Why isn’t there an option to be a left handed Spartan?
Also there should be a flipped Xbox controller for lefties as well.
I can make a whole list of things that leave lefties to have to convert to being right handed.
I think if 343 wants to add something different to an FPS they should look into this matter. I’m sure you can map out your controller so that your left trigger is for shooting so why not have your Spartan be left handed as well? Not everyone is righty so I don’t know how lefties put up with this on a daily basis.
Yeah I remember a long long time ago playing COD modern warfare 2, some random I played with claimed that he was in the military and said he was lefty and thought it was -Yoink!- that fps games we’re all righty.
Now that I think about it… he also mentioned that people who shoot lefty have specially made left handed guns. That’s because the bullet shoots out the other was. So I guess they would have to add a left handed battle rifle to the game and then my right handed Spartan would pick up a left gun and have bullet shells flying in his face
Now I guess I see why fps give in to the righty way of things
So firstly my personal opinion - the most difficult part of it would be the animations - particularly reload on some weapons but if they could then shouldn’t have any impact on gameplay so yeah low priority but yeah.
However secondly - if you’re in the military in real life and left-handed - tough . The triggers, levers, flaps and switches are not removable or customisable. You learn the right handed way and do it that way. So if you’re a lore person and believe equal rights for lefties won’t be improved in the future then it’ll have to be right handed
this is something that lots of games ignore, especially considering the real mechanic is all weapons simply shoot from the center of the screen not the real weapon model. I 100% agree there should be a left handed version.
Funny fact: The designer of counter strike is a lefty and designed all guns for lefties and flipped the models to have a right handed version.
This can easily be seen when shooting the m4a1 (right handed) and have the casing flying over the screen towards the player and not outwards. If you use it left handed, the casings are flying outwards away from the player.
To expand on this. What if a right handed player drops their right handed weapon on the floor and you left handed person picks it up. Are the levers supposed to flip to other side so you can do your left handed reload animation or are they going to be left and right handed knobs on all weapons?
Not saying it shouldn’t happen - just pointing out the things that will need to be looked at.
While that use to be the case in Australian military, these days they accomodate left handers, just gotta let the armoury know you got one of those lefties coming to get a weapon. they will give you a weapon with the ejection port blocked out on the other side and open on the other, nothing else is swapped over as they are designed right handed with an ejection port on both sides.
They do some weird hand over weapon -blam- to -Yoink!- the weapon but haha. Mind you all drill is done right handed.
