Actually the command wants the [[currentMuzzle]] ([[gunner]] _vehicle) as parameter - not the weapon class.

Most of the time both are the same. However when you have custom [[CfgWeapons_Config_Reference#modes.5B.5D.3D_.7B.22this.22.7D|modes[]]] for the weapons, this is likely not true.

Actually the command wants the currentMuzzle (gunner _vehicle) as parameter - not the weapon class. Most of the time both are the same. However when you have custom modes[] for the weapons, this is likely not true.
