Steam – use the soldier’s old v_model hand instead of the c_model in TF2


For the past couple of years I have been playing TF2. After the LaW update there was a change in the player models and animations. In this question, I am referring specifically to the soldier model.

My question is if there is a way to use the old v_model instead of the newer c_model, since the model's hands are dramatically different. These two pictures compare them:

Old (v_model) soldier hand:

New (c_model) Soldier hand:
New Soldier hand

This has been bugging me for a while as I feel the newer model's hand is terrible.

Unfortunately, no. As far as I could find very few weapons will allow the use of v models. The ones that will allow v model are Stickybomb Launcher, Minigun, Revolver, Knife, and Red Tape Recorder. No other models will accept a v model.
