Hello everyone,

When you stand still in first person view you can see the idle animation of your weapon. When you walk, or run, you get a different animation. The gun shakes a bit more when you run.
I checked the animation files but I can't find any animation that would be played. AFAIK there is only a animation for enter, exit, idle, fire and reload.
So, did I miss something or is it the engine that does this?

Not exactly sure how it works but the engine does this with the human animations in combination with the gun animation and the hand animations.

The animations used for that are F_CA_IDLE, F_CA_WALK and F_CA_RUN.
It has nothing to do with the human animations (in first person anyway)

Indeed, those are the files I'm looking for, thanks.
I do find it strange they only made unique idle animations for guns. Though I guess there was no time for unique walk and run animations.

How does one go about making these animations for a custom weapon model. It looks dumb without them, especially without the reload, fire, animations etc.

It's difficult but this tut pretty much covers it:
