I like playing scout in KOTH games, and so I play much better with view models off. But when I play demoman or spy, I want to keep the view models on. Is there any way to achieve this?

I think if you use cl_drawviewmodel 0(or whatever command it is) in the character specific text file in the configuration folder it should work. drawviewmodel is considered a cheat though so chances are it won't work, plus you have to do a cl_drawviewmodel 1 for the other classes.


steam -> steamapps -> username -> team fortress 2 -> tf -> cfg -> scout.cfg

Adding on to TC's question, is there a script or way to turn the view model off for specific weapons? Like say I was playing spy and I want to turn it off for the revolver, but keep it for the knife.

Not really an expert on it, but you can, although it's iffy.

Let's say you bind the knife to 1, it would be something like

alias invisiknife "slot1; cl_drawviewmodel 0"
alias visirevolver "slot2; cl_drawviewmodel 1"
alias visisapper "slot3; cl_drawviewmodel 1"

bind 1 "invisiknife"
bind 2 "visirevolver"
bind 3 "visisapper"

It won't work with the mouse wheel or last weapon.

There's probably a better way though, just can't think of it right now.

Well after some research and what you guys told me I added this too my scout config


bind "1" "slot1; r_drawviewmodel 0"
bind "2" "slot2; r_drawviewmodel 1"
bind "3" "slot3; r_drawviewmodel 1"

So when I press 1 my scattergun isn't shown but the rest of the weapons are.
Any ways, thanks guys.
