<br/>'''NOTE:''' 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]]. |= Description

Template:Command

Notes

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 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 t72)

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

In Arma2 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.

If it did work at one time, it does no longer. The AI (or player) is forced to look upwards or reacts to a massive recoil force before getting his shot off.

Command did not work with ACR 1.62. Used "fireAtTarget" instead.
