How to make player hold tool with both hands

Hello! This may not be scripting but there is a gun that I have as a tool. I want the gun to be held in different positions on the gun…does anyone know how to do this?
-Thank you!

Try and make an animation with the gun that puts both arms onto the gun in the spots you want them.

EDIT: And script it to activate the animation when the player has the gun equipped

I have no experience of scripting…

Are you working with R15 or R6?

EDIT: (For animating purposes)

You really need welds.
There is a handle grip changer plugin as well.

This as well.

I believe the handle grip changer plugin that you’re referring to is only to edit the position of the grip (If we’re thinking of the same one).

Hello,

When your tool is being equipped, try to add a WeldConstraint onto the second part’s handle connected to player’s hand of choice, then have the position to be set onto a player hand of choice. So when doing the animation and stuff, you can still hold onto the swords or dual-wielded weapons.

Add this to your handle

------local script ------ make sure your animation is action and looped------
local holdAnim = 12345678 ------ your animation

repeat wait() until game.Players.LocalPlayer.Character

local lp = game.Players.LocalPlayer

local sp = script.Parent

local anim = Instance.new(“Animation”)

anim.AnimationId = “rbxassetid://” … holdAnim

local holdtrack = lp.Character.Humanoid:LoadAnimation(anim)

sp.Equipped:connect(function() — plays when equipped

holdtrack:Play()

end)

sp.Unequipped:connect(function() — stops when Unequipped

holdtrack:Stop()

end)
I can give you a animation. this will make you gun be held with both hands

This will give you a custom idle and sprint animation ( i assume you don’t want to be stuck in the idle animation while sprinting )

local UIS = game:GetService("UserInputService")
local player = game.Players.LocalPlayer

repeat wait(1) until player.Character

local character = player.Character
local humanoid = character:WaitForChild("Humanoid")
local sprintSpeed = 30
local walkSpeed = 16
local crouchSpeed = 10
local equipped = false

local animation = Instance.new("Animation")
animation.Name = "Idle"
animation.Parent = script.Parent
animation.AnimationId = "rbxassetid://8269791536"
local animtrack = humanoid:LoadAnimation(animation)

local runAnim = Instance.new("Animation")
runAnim.Name = "Sprint"
runAnim.Parent = script.Parent
runAnim.AnimationId = "rbxassetid://6932225442"
local runAnimTrack = humanoid:LoadAnimation(runAnim)

local function beginSprint(input, gameProcessed)
	if not gameProcessed then
		if input.UserInputType == Enum.UserInputType.Keyboard then
			local keycode = input.KeyCode
			if keycode == Enum.KeyCode.LeftShift and equipped then
				runAnimTrack:Play()
			end
		end
	end
end

local function endSprint(input, gameProcessed)
	if not gameProcessed then
		if input.UserInputType == Enum.UserInputType.Keyboard then
			local keycode = input.KeyCode
			if keycode == Enum.KeyCode.LeftShift then
				runAnimTrack:Stop()
			end
		end
	end
end

script.Parent.Equipped:Connect(function()
	if character.Humanoid.WalkSpeed == sprintSpeed then
		runAnimTrack:Play()
	else
		animtrack:Play()
	end
	
	equipped = true
end)

script.Parent.Unequipped:Connect(function()
	animtrack:Stop()
	runAnimTrack:Stop()
	equipped = false
end)


UIS.InputBegan:Connect(beginSprint)
UIS.InputEnded:Connect(endSprint)

Your going to have to create the animations yourself though. I don’t think you need to use welds. You can just use the tool grip editor to get the correct placement for the handle.

I made a tutorial which links 2 other tutorials. If you would like, you can follow that. It might help you with what you’re trying to achieve.

https://devforum.roblox.com/t/how-to-animate-tool-handles-easily-specifically-melees-unsure-of-guns

could you give me an animation?

Yea, do you know how to export animations?
Export me! - Roblox.

in studio------
go to plugins-
then to animations-
and click on the model and it should show a animation interface–
then click the three dots and click export-
and after its exported then there should be a copy id or id for the animation then----v

------local script ------ make sure your animation is action and looped------
local holdAnim = 12345678 ------ the animation id

repeat wait() until game.Players.LocalPlayer.Character

local lp = game.Players.LocalPlayer

local sp = script.Parent

local anim = Instance.new(“Animation”)

anim.AnimationId = “rbxassetid://” … holdAnim

local holdtrack = lp.Character.Humanoid:LoadAnimation(anim)

sp.Equipped:connect(function() — plays when equipped

holdtrack:Play()

end)

sp.Unequipped:connect(function() — stops when Unequipped

holdtrack:Stop()

end)

I sadly can’t access this tutorial

That reply is quite old. The tutorial I linked has been replaced, and is in much further depth than the previous. You can access it here
