I cannot seem to get Marine actors to fire their weapons full auto in long bursts.

After tons of editing, I unintentionally got them to fire single shot in between short delays, which was not what I wanted. It's kinda frustrating, making marines pathetically unable to win any fights, completely relying on the player.

Can anyone help me out?

You need to edit the number of times they hold down the trigger depending on the weapon they are using. For continuous fire, simply set the number of times to zero, and they will hold down the trigger until the gun runs dry. For more trigger pulls, set the number of times to the number of rounds fired per second by the weapon they are using, i.e. assault rifle marines set at 15 trigger pulls per second to match 15 rounds per second, to create the illusion of continuous fire. Again, this is all dependent on the weapon a particular Marine actor is using, however. With plasma weapons, be a bit more careful.

I hope this helps.

I think that helped a bit. I've noticed marines now firing full auto. Except some are still doing the single-shot thing, again.

Here's a video demonstrating: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_e5CqFUCJ4

Any ideas?

Did you apply the changes to the major variant as well?

Oh, yeah. That worked! That's weird, though. I didn't intentionally put down any major variants, and none of my marines were using the stock officer voices or models, since I never got around to replacing those.

Thanks for the help.
