<code>_unit [[playActionNow]] "PutDown";

_unit [[fire]] [

Introduced with Operation Flashpoint version1.00
  Arguments of this scripting command have to be local to the client the command is executed onEffects of this scripting command are broadcasted over the network and happen on every computer in the network

Click on the images for descriptions

Introduced in

Game:
Operation Flashpoint
Version:
1.00

Description

Description:
Forces a unit to fire the given weapon. See also: BIS_fnc_fire.
Just like with forceWeaponFire it is possible to pass remote unit as argument, but this could be unreliable. Considering this command might need to be used in combination with selectWeapon, which takes only local arguments, it would make sense to execute fire command where unit is also local.

Syntax

Syntax:
unit fire muzzle
Parameters:
unit: Object - unit that is supposed to fire
muzzle: String - name of the muzzle to be fired
Return Value:
Nothing

Alternative Syntax

Syntax:
unit fire [muzzle, mode, magazine]
Parameters:
unit: Object
[muzzle, mode, magazine]: Array
muzzle: String
mode: String
magazine: String (Optional)
Return Value:
Nothing

Examples

Example 1:
_soldier fire "M16";
Example 2:
_soldier fire "SmokeShellMuzzle";
Example 3:
_soldier fire ["SmokeShellMuzzle", "SmokeShellMuzzle", "SmokeShellRed"];
Example 4:
player playActionNow "PutDown"; player selectWeapon "DemoChargeMuzzle"; player fire ["DemoChargeMuzzle", "DemoChargeMuzzle", "DemoCharge_Remote_Mag"]; player setWeaponReloadingTime [player, "DemoChargeMuzzle", 0];

Sometimes AI won't shoot when you use this command. It can be fixed by placing selectWeapon command before it.

In OFP v1.96, when a man class unit is given this command, he will aim up in the air before firing his weapon. This makes it rather useless if you want to make him shoot a target. It does work with vehicles, when the vehicle is first given a doWatch or doTarget command.

In ArmA v1.02, this command is not working with weapons in the secondary turrets (like "DSHKM" in T-72)

To place a satchel (pipebomb) the syntax is:
OFP: unitname Fire ["put", "pipebomb"]
ArmA: unitname Fire ["pipebombmuzzle", "pipebombmuzzle", "pipebomb"];
The triggering is done via a "TOUCHOFF" action.

In Arma 2, AI will automatically shoot straight up. Command seems to be broken.

Command is broken - confirmed. Use action "USEWEAPON" instead. Place a game logic in the editor. Name it MyGameLogic. Use this code to make unit1 fire his primaryweapon: MyGameLogic action ["useWeapon", primaryWeapon unit1, unit1, 0];

Command works just fine in A2/OA. Make sure to execute it on local AI.
