RE: changing weapon while sprinting

Maybe they should consider making it possible to change weapons while sprinting, but in such a way that you can only change between 2 weapons/items while sprinting (ie only the first two items in the hotbar will be switchable while sprinting). That way,if an enemy closes the distance to a player firing a gun, the player will be able to switch between a ranged weapon and a melee weapon while springing away. It would probably be bad to allow them to do this with more than just 2 items though, because they might be able to just continue changing guns instead of actually reloading.

I am actually pretty sure in real life you wouldn't be able to pull a shotgun out of your back as you are running from a crawling giant chomping asshole.

It isn't too hard to grab something while running. Have you ever drank from a water bottle while running before? It's awkward and slow, but you can still do it. If anything, you ought to be able to switch weapons at a reduced speed. The character is obviously no magical hero capable of extreme feats, but he is certainly not JUST human. At least, not anymore.

Anyways, if you've got straps for ease of getting what you want, you can get it while running. And since the hotbar seems to be his belt of sorts, he's probably able to grab it while running.
