Secondary Fire (in some places also known as Alternate Fire) is a feature in Just Cause 4.


As the name suggests, it is a secondary way of firing a weapon.

All weapons in Just Cause 4 (or at least, some) appear to have some kind of secondary fire mode, as seen in some pre-release videos.

The Black Hand appears to extensively use this mode of fire.

One example seen in pre-release gameplay videos is a machine gun that has shields folded onto its sides. This weapon can be fired loosely in the hand, like a normal two-handed gun, but once the shields are folded open, the weapon also folds/extends down a small pedestal that turns the weapon into a Mounted Gun. In this form the weapon is stationary.
