Pressing shoot button when behind cover without aiming will make you raise ur gun on the crate and shoot without watching,but u cant aim and ur hand can still get shot.

Would make sense in a 3D game, but in sfd you can't miss so it would be overpowered.

There are a few problems that would come with a feature like this. And in a way it doesnt really make sense if you can already see the whole screen. kinda takes away from the "Blind Fire"

The only way this would actually work was if spread was dramatically increased while firing blind. However the problem is that what if you wanted to fire behind you while still in cover on a different side?

I liked your idea but that's kinda the type of idea "this have been like this for too long, it is only weird to change it now". Honestly, I think this would fix some problems the players have when behind a cover, you'd only put your arm out and shoot, right? If you want to aim, it would be like it already is.

I think you would press the aim button uh. You would need to put your head out, but that can be explained by the same reason you can't aim while crouching. If you want to shoot behind you without showing off, you'd need to press left key for a sec, crouch again and shoot, easily (this is enough to get pwned by any player today, btw). It's not a disadvantageous suggestion, it's cool in my see, but it is like something that's still not worth to make.

You can already fire blindly from the hip with some weapons, head height with others. This also works from cover where you stand for a brief moment and fire from the hip and you can still get shot in your upper body parts no longer covered. We don't see the need for a smaller hit-box when firing blindly from cover.
