Have your weapons lowered or raised whenever you want.
From my gameplay mod, ARBITRATION.
From a post of mine clearing up a thing or two about Fallout 4’s cover system that nobody knows about:
Fallout 4 has a cover system. A lot of people aren’t even aware of this. You can walk up to a corner, face the wall, and it’ll go into cover and your weapon will lower. Then you can right click and you’ll peek around the corner and fire, just like the npcs do.
The thing is, you go into cover no matter what object you face, even the ground or an NPC. I’ve set it so that the lowered weapon stays lower, and you can right click to raise it up. With the right combination of distance and amount of time it takes for the weapon to lower you can make sure this is only done if you absolutely want it to (get real close to something and wait for half a sec or so) or you can make it super easy to happen.
It feels pretty natural IMO, and your weapon will lower in a lot of cases you want it to without having to even think about it (especially with the 2x cover distance I provide).
To lower your weapon, look near enough at an object or NPC to go into cover – or just look down at the ground. Configurable cover distance included – the 2x version is perfect range for lowering the weapon when talking to NPCs.
Aim your weapon and let go to have your weapon raised again (you can just barely tap rightclick)
Done with game settings only.
No uninstallation issues
Configurable (FOMod installer) distance and delay for weapon lowering
Easier than pressing a button (with the 2x modded distance, it’s automatic when talking to an npc or interacting with an object) and faster than holding the holster button to put your weapon away
