Left Handed Weapon?
Hello:

I just started playing Quake III. Yes, I know I'm a little late to the party, but as they say, better late than never. ;-P

My question is this, is there an option to have a left handed weapon like in Quake 2 or Unreal Tournament 99? I am left handed and much prefer having the weapon appear on the left side. I looked all through the setup, but did not see this option. Perhaps someone has made a skin with the weapon in the left hand?

Thank you!

Unfortunately, You Have To Add That Yourself 
http://code3arena.planetquake.gamespy.com/tutorials/tutorial26.shtml

It is based on an earlier version of the source code than what is currently commonly used, no doubt, a few changes will have to be made.

to find a server for a game mode like generations arena that already supports that feature. 
Hi 
You will have to craft new models by hand. Using +2 instead of -2 through this guide should work:

Apologies... 
Spirit, apologies for opening the thread and thank you for those who replied.

I can't believe id never put the option into Quake III for having the weapon in any other hand than the right. 
Oh 
Oops, I thought you were talking about Quake, didn't see the III. Sorry. 
 
Found out about the commands...

cg_gunx
cg_guny
cg_gunz

But these only appear to work if you play a "devmap"
