Yes I will try this.
It works. Simply swapping "Weapon Type" from 1 to another 100% makes it the other weapon 00000000220CFDC0 This is my Tec9 Weapon Type code. Can anyone share their weapon code to see if they match or if it is Unique per installation?
Changing "Type" did not change it's rarity or mod slots. Only it's type!
I'm assuming if the other weapon uses different "Mod slots" (barrel/stock) it may cause an issue? Let's test.
Trying to change an SMG into an AR crashed the game. Changing an MP5 into a Tec9 worked though
. Let me try to again change this weapon (3rd change) into a UMP.
Changing it from MP5 to Tec9 to UMP all worked. Stats changed and even appropriate attachments (Tec9 used Tec9 magazine/stock, UMP used UMP stock)
I also noticed that "Weapon Type" code changes between game launches, RIP.
RIP I also noticed that my Mod Slot code changed Today. I had been re-using the same codes for days (working) But today I notice the mod slot's code has changed.... Hmmm.
I wonder what "Weapon Data" is for then.
I've been messing around with it trying to change a sniper rifle into AIM but i cant seem to figure it out... dont really know the "weapon type" value of AIM and like you said it changed per launch .. so i guess ill just keep running missions and hope that i get AIM sniper rifle from one of the cases lol..
