Gun script, lagging

Heyo,

So I have gone through a tutorial on how to make guns, due to me having no previous knowledge, and now that I know a bit more, I managed to rummage through and modify it, make it better, my problem now is, the guns are very laggy…

Local Script:

Server Script:

Any advice on reducing lag would be appreciated!
You can see the lag and see what I mean by trying the guns here:

The more people shooting, the more chaotic the lag.

The gun on the local side fires super rapidly resulting in the ammo counter dropping in chunks of numbers.

Do you have any idea of why only one of the guns reloads? (BroomGun)

Could be the other guns are stuck in fire mode and don’t debounce properly.

In the loop in the tool.activated function on line 156 in your local script it has a wait(0). That is running the fire() function too fast, it should be at least a 0.01 wait before calling the fire function again.

The difference between wait(0) and wait(.01) is miniscule as wait(0) defaults to wait() which is roughly every 1/30 seconds (or roughly .03), and so calling wait with .01 as an argument is pretty much redundant.

Can you inform us what the configs are set to? In particular what is range and fireRate?

My bad. For some reason I thought wait() just yielded until everything above was done.

Anyway, awhile back I used the same scripts as @aerophobes is using now but I modified them a bit as well (added crosshairs, mobile support, preventing team kills, etc.) and I had a wait(0.01) and my fire rate in the configure folder was set to 300. With these settings I had no noticeable lag. If @aerophobes is interested I can show my scripts.

Sorry for late response:
In both I am holding down Left Click.

In Studio:

In Game:

I’ve had this problem too to the point where my Roblox crashed.
Replace your repeat until loop with the RunService.RenderStepped event, like this:

local runService = game:GetService("RunService")
runService.RenderStepped:Connect(function()
    if(mouseDown) then
        -- do the shoot stuff here instead
    end
end)

Hope this helps!
