This system is meant as a base for your fps animations, eliminating the need to make or buy most animations that are common in fps games. It gives you full control over the procedural animation settings, interpolation curves and speeds. With dozens of parameters to change and tweak, you can easily come up with unique animations for your game.


The system also has a basic recoil system that works together with animations to give you a good feeling of feedback when shooting a weapon, for example. The system also allows you to easily setup different weapons, coming with 2 examples for you to use and understand how everything works. Extensive tutorials are also available for you to learn the system (links bellow), as well as direct support on my discord channel (click here).
