Added in ACE3 v3.0.0

Overheating

1. Overview

1.1 Weapon Jamming

Adds a probability to jam a weapon when firing. Jams can be cleared by reloading or by using the clear jam-key.

1.2 Temperature simulation

Introduces weapon temperature simulation depending on weapon and bullet mass. Hot weapons are more prone to jamming. Depending on weapon type the accuracy and in extreme cases the muzzle velocity might be reduced on high temperatures. Adds smoke puff and heat refraction effects to indicate this.

1.3 Spare barrels

Adds the ability to changes barrels on machine guns to compensate for those effects.

2. Usage

2.1 Clearing a jammed weapon

  • To clear a jammed weapon, press SHIFT + R (ACE3 default key bind Clear jam).

2.2 Swapping barrels

  • For this you need a Spare barrel and a compatible weapon.
  • Press self interaction Ctrl + ⊞ Win (ACE3 default key bind Self Interaction Key).
  • Select Equipment.
  • Select Swap barrel.

2.3 Checking your barrel temperature

  • Press self interaction Ctrl + ⊞ Win.
  • Select Equipment.
  • Select Check weapon temperature.

NOTE When the bar is half full (yellow) it means the barrel is around 500°c. Your weapon will be even more prone to jams, and it’ll get worse if you don’t let the barrel cool down or swap it.
