Hunter pistol as utility item?

Post by Edd88 » Thu May 18, 2017 9:07 pm

Hello,

After unlocking the alien hunter weapons in LW 1.3 i noticed that the hunter pistol/shadowkeeper can only be equiped in a utility slot, not secondary (or primary when using primary pistols mod) slot. Also the hunter pistol can not be equiped in a utility slot when there is already a pistol equipped.

Is this an intentional feature of LW 1.3? Or is my game just bugged?
The only mods i use that affect pistols as far as i can tell are "primary pistols" and "shadowfall reworked"

Thanks in advance.

Yeah. Pistols are now utility items, you can only equip one pistol at a time as well.

That is an interesting change to say the least.

Since a few soldier classes can only equip a pistol in the secondary slot, and you can't unequip it, does this mean they are exempt from using the Hunter pistol altogether?

Actually, there are no LW2 classes which equip a pistol in their secondary slot: everyone has to put their pistol in a utility slot if they want to have one.

You're totally right, didn't realize that.
Sadly a lot of custom soldier classes i use come with secondary pistols so thats my problem then ;-).

Thanks for the fast replies!

You should also be aware that modded classes with secondary pistols also won't work with the AWC perks for pistols in LW2
