    I was just messing around in UT2004 and I noticed that aim is still blocked when you're 3rd person view. Is there a way of unblocking it ?

    Aiming in 3rd-person view actually worked in UT, right?
    I wonder why they made it impossible to aim in 2k3/2k4, anyway.....

    Kind of.... Up and down is impossible, but you can technically still aim left and right. I am actually pretty good at playing in 3rd person. :D

    the behindview aiming was locked to make sure people didn't use it to gain an edge. it's there to balance out the fact that you can see around corners using behindview.

    They didn't both happen at the same time! One happened when the other wasn't enough!

    It's optional from server-side.

    The only way, apart from Taken from Behind, I've seen the ability to aim while in 3rd person is if the player is in the PlayerFlying state. Where he, erm, flies.

    this isnt a solution but download chaosUT and you can fight in third person when you take out a melee weapon.

    Yes, I've read a few discussions about this. Apparently, behindview was sometimes used to see around corners without getting seen. Behindview 1 is now blocked on some classic UT servers. It's a shame that it's been blocked by default in UT2004 though as I sometimes like to mess around offline and see if I can combo at an awkward angle in 3rd person view :p .

    P.S: Try this map for practising combos :

    It's obviously a cheat if you play with behindview on IG CTF(dont think so for the others mods). You can hide behind a wall wait until your enemy comes near to you.. and pop out and shoot him.
