I have seen people in some videos changing weapons from right hand to left hand. I know that this is a console command, but I dont know what the command is. Can anyone tell me?

cl_righthand 1 - Right hand cl_righthand 0 - Left hand

in console
bind "keyname" "cl_righthand 1" <hit enter>
bind "keyname" "cl_righthand 0" <hit enter>

Change keyname to whichever key you want to perform that action.

Alternatively you can use

bind KEY "toggle cl_righthand 0 1"

to have the switch on the same button.

  • You can also use autoexec.cfg, cl_righthand.

Example: If you want to switch weapons from 1 hand to another on the key "Z" you type this in console:

Bind z "toggle cl_righthand 0 1"

After binding it: If you press "Z" once it goes to the lefthand, if you press again it goes to the righthand.
