Description Ralph Vickers 2014-09-23 17:38:12 UTC
Enhancement request for a variable that would make players change their weapon as soon as they issue the command, eliminating the up/down hud sequence. Perhaps "sv_fastswitch"?

Instant-switch is a feature that every multiplayer-only Doom ports have.
