    So I don't know if you have ever played the custom game Special Forces Elite: Shared Income Version that is modded by Lanzarote, but he has many heroes in it, including A.R.E.S. I have an idea that I want to use that is similar to Lanzarote's to arm A.R.E.S. with his different weapons systems. Does anyone know how I might be able to do that by just using abilities? I can get a screenshot if you need it, but in order to get a real feel, you have to play it really.

    The ares warbot was orginally from the campaign and had different weapons to choose from. There are applied via Buff behaviours.

    And here is an old demo map of mine found on several threads on this site showing how to do a weapon swap.

    Thanks doctor. That map gave me some ideas :)

    Anyway... to add / change weapon for unit change "Combat: Weapons - Weapon" value.


    Edit: Doh, OP asked weapon changing, not just weapon adding :)

    Irony is that map has been on the forum threads for over a year.

    Yeah, I was able to get it to work like a charm. Once again you saved the day.
