    I thought it had been said that in multiplayer you can get your character to be unarmed.

    Can anyone confirm and inform me how?

    Well yeah, but I assume he knows that.

    Where did you hear that one, Ryoku?

    I didn't hear anything about this and to be honest... Why would you want that?
    It would kind of defeats the purpose of the game. The only reason I would ever want my character to be unarmed is if I was making a Machinima.

    Or a fist fighting play style with sweet finishers like a roundhouse kick to the face.

    I believe it was mentioned in one of the interviews but I can't provide the source. So go ahead and assume I'm wrong.
    Well what do you know? That happens to be exactly what I'm considering.

    i think the closest you'll get is when you stand there and don't do anything for a few seconds and the character lowers his gun arm to his side

    Well then... I hope there is a way to do so, I would love to see Machinima made in FOC.
    Actually, I would love to see the theater/forge features of Halo to make their way to FOC in the future.
    It is the unreal engine after all, alot is possible with it.

    All we need now is a good theater system and we could start making Transformer Machinima.

    For those wondering where this was heard, there was gameplay of Optimus without his weapon out. It was automatic like Bumblebee's level, but someone blurted "WE CAN RETRACT OUR WEAPONS?! YAY"

    Actually, he's wrong, it just lowers, it doesn't retract.

    No, I don't jump to conclusions like that. It was said in an interview by Tieger I believe.

    crap! my mistake!!

    I could've sworn I saw my weapon retract on the first night of the demo while taking a node... either I was seeing things or it was something that got changed with the tweaks being added in...

    Seriously, my apologies.

    It happens. I did just confirm that sitting still for a minute or so doesn't do anything. Also played with a bunch of different button combos and couldn't find anything. It's always possible it was removed.

    Send HMS a email or tweet and see if they will add it in.
    I don't think a animation like that would be hard to add in.

    I don't remember hearing about that but maybe it's locked in the demo but not the full game. If it's there it might either be one of the arrow keys, or the select key like in mass effect one, and two for holstering weapons.

    It actually already is in the game. When you sprint you retract your weapon. When your character is in the character creator they are unarmed. It's just a question of how easy is that animation to isolate and bind to a button.

    I tried this in the vortex level.

    Cleared the enemies, found a nice spot, sat there in robot mode, left the game running while I made myself a hot pocket, watched some black dynamite, took a piss, and came back.

    My gun was still there.

    There's a few reasons this is post of the day.
