Switch Weapons – Mafia III
There’s always a perfect weapon for any given situation in Mafia III, which is why it’s great that you’re allowed to switch in the middle of combat. There are two different ways to switch weapons, though, each of which can be useful in different situations.
The first method is quick switching, which is done by tapping L1/LB. This switches your current weapon with the last weapon you used so you can keep swapping back and forth between two different option. For example, you can have an assault rifle for crowds, then a pistol for a bit more accuracy on a single enemy if you’d like.
The second method is holding down L1/LB to bring up your weapon wheel. This allows you to select from any of your currently carried weapons. This won’t be necessary when you first start, as you’ll only be able to carry two different guns (one pistol and anything else you pick up). But later on, as you unlock more slots, this will most likely become your preferred way of doing things as new challenges present themselves.
