Holding tool with R6 causes torso to freeze midair?

Here’s my issue:

Video may or may not be in Hd by the time you’re seeing this. As you can see, whenever I hold the tool, the torso sort of freezes midair. When I unequip the tool, the torso unfreezes and goes back to normal. How do I fix this?

The script would be nice to see what could be causing the issue :thinking:

there is literally nothing in the script, all it is is

script.Parent.Activated:Connect(function()

end)

Yeah, I’m pretty sure this is just the tool animation for R6. I don’t think this is a bug.

If you want to fix it, you’ll have to find the R6 animation for equipping the tool, go into animation editor, and make a copy that has the Torso part “unlocked” (i.e. not animated).

put a local script into StarterCharacterScripts and name it “Animate” then put this in it

local Figure = script.Parent
local Torso = Figure:WaitForChild("Torso")

what this does is it removes the default tool holding animation for tools

Challenge accepted!

There is a specific tool animation for gear. This tutorial with a bit of improvising may help you with this. How To Create A Custom Animation For R6 And R15 In Roblox Studio | Tutorial DJ Weirdo - YouTube

i have the same issue, i tried everything, nothing works :pensive:

It is probably the gear holding animation. Change that up, and you should be good to go.

Are any parts of the tool anchored? (In the model/tool, not in the animation)

EDIT: Sorry, I didn’t read the post correctly. Other suggests to delete the Torso animation track in that “Hold sword animation”.
