Re-arming while on a mission

Recommended Posts

It's not well documented but re-arming in a mission IS possible.

 

Simply edit the Controls/Default.ini file (or whatever controls file you're using) and add the following line to the [ControlSet001] section

 

REARM_WEAPONS=ALT+W

 

Re-run the game, expend your weapons, then press the key combination defined in the line above. Hey presto - you're rearmed!

 

Here's proof (using the FuelWeight value to prove that these shots were taken one after the other on the same flight)

ALT+W Re-armed

Now, of course, with great power comes great responsibility, so I expect folks to RTB, taxi to the arming pit and then press the rearming button. No cheating while airbourne! ;-) (BTW, it doesn't work for fuel unfortunately).

 

I'd like to take credit for discovering this but someone else posted the details a while back and I simply made a note of them - if the original author of this tip reads this please make yourself known, I expect that folks will want to thank you personally. This is the first time I've tried it and was pleasantly surprised to see that it works. I used WOE (patched Oct 2008) as my testbed.

 

All the best, regards, comrpnt.
