Opinions on flipping the viewmodels?

So a little bit of context, i was in a discussion with a friend who plays soldier often, and i brought up the topic of Being able to flip viewmodels on the fly, and he instantly said "yeah that won't be OP".

I think it would be, and here's why:

every rocket Launcher that is not the Original is more or less confirmed to fire from the right hand side by default (on your left if you have flipped Viewmodels), which is why some places are able to be spammed without being that easy of a target, so, let's say for example on a map that has a mirrored layout, say Viaduct or Product or let's take it a step further, SD_Doomsday, being able to immediately swap your rockets firing path on the fly would be pretty unfair towards those that don't swap their Viewmodels.

That's just my 5 cents on the topic though, and honestly, it doesn't affect me that much since i use the original. But i'd love to hear some pro players opinions on the topic.

Thanks for reading :)

You have to be in spectator/main menu to flip your viewmodel- you can not flip your viewmodel whilst playing

I never said that it was possible. i was merely speaking of it as a concept.

It wouldn't be overpowered but it would give you an unfair advantage and a mechanic like that would be stupid, hence as Bowl said it's only possible in spec/not in game.

iirc it was possible in the early stage of the game, but it was patched due to, in fact, unfair advantages

cirloiirc it was possible in the early stage of the game, but it was patched due to, in fact, unfair advantages

This is correct. A few soldiers started to use scripts where if they'd left click, it'd change their view model to the left and then shoot, and if they right click, it'd change their viewmodel to the right and then shoot.

Very soon after, Valve patched it out. This happened sometime in 2008 or 2009 I believe.
