Sidearms time to shine

So... with the current malfunction changes Sidearms got a place now in EFT

I would like to suggest  that the transition between our weapon on the sling and the sidearm to be faster.
Maybe even a new skill on our characters?
Weapon malfunction? go sidearm just like IRL
As is this transition plays REALLY SLOWLY,  maybe the act of holstering the sidearm and going back to the main weapon should remain slow
but not the drawing of the sidearm since you should be able to instantly drop the rifle on the sling and go for the draw on the sidearm quickly

Also while you are at it maybe making the transition between the weapon on the sling to the weapon on the back slower would encorage the use of sidearms even more
while also being more realistic.

All the best!

It really would give pistols a place in the game, right now they're pretty much relegated to hatchet running.

I would like this change to get people to think about from were they engage. Like make sure you are close to cover so you can be safe for reload or unjam. Right now everyone is in such a hurry they just bump in the open and every fight is just a spray and you win if you have bigger mag. Not alot of back and fourth. 

Making pistols a fast swap just makes it still viable to just sprint in the open and engage.

You make it sound like it's "bad". If you can pull that off and are willing to burn through more cash you should totally be able to do that.

as far as i know, if you lvl up your pistoling or any type of weapon, you can swap faster between those types of weapons, so it is already in game, you guys have not noticed cause have not lvl up that skill yet
