Does anyone know how the "APs to ready" times are calculated? I'm puzzled by what look like discrepancies between different weapons, such as the MP5A3 and MP5N smgs (4 & 7 APs to ready each).

Ready time is defined for each weapon in Weapons.xml. It is modified by several factors:

- AP system used (no modification in 100AP system)
- gun attachments
- trait bonuses (Skills_Settings.INI)
- shooting from hip (RAISE_TO_ALTWEAPHOLD_READY_APS_PERC in Ja2_Options.INI)

Thanks for the reply and sorry for my delay in posting this reply.

I was not so much wondering about modifications to the ready time but how the weapon.xml figures were arrived at. I doubt that there is sufficient ergonomic difference between the MP5A3 and MP5N to justify a nearly 50% increase in time to ready. If no one knows, I guess it would be a mystery of the original xml file. happy

I have no idea how the original numbers were defined but this specific case of the MP5A4 and MP5N seems like a "bug" to me. The MP5A4 comes with a fixed buttstock which can be replaced by a retractable stock so it should have the same 7 point ready time as the other MP5 variants. The MP5N comes with a built-in retractable stock that allows 7 points (unfolded) or 4 points (folded) ready time.
