About weaponslots:

There are restrictions and you cannot add simply a dragging weapon to the kit. It has to be in the correct idx and when its in a wrong idx the game crashs. You can make multiple clones of dragging Body weapon with different itemindexes but than you willl maybe lose another weapon of your kit.

You will lose at least the knife, or shovel or another important keyfeature of the kit.

I wasn't looking at it with such depth about the weaponslots (Those kits I listed often don't have weapons for 2 slots.

I just made the suggestion on kits that may beable to have the dragging ability due to their weapon slots and the amount of equipment they carry. It'd be unrealistic if a breacher/ar/mg/lat etc can carry someone when they have a ton of ammo and shit to hold.

Those guys should also beable to drag because they barely carry any equipment.

Agree but than the question comes up why a pilot is in the middle of a map and dragging wounded soldiers?
Shouldn't he supposed to be in a chopper seat?
A crashed chopper crew scenario is the only reason why a pilot is not in his cockpit seat but who gonna be revive the guy that got dragged?

Crewman, sure, should have it due to weight of equipment but would you leave your driver or gunner position to drag a body? Also, many apc's give you the ability to request kits from it. If you can request the medic kit, would it make sense to give dragging to the crewman kit?

Isn't that a step backward? Why the Devs implemented the pilot and crewman kit system?
Why we have the restrictions that a medic cannot fly a chopper or drive a tank?

Wasn't it made to give each kit a important unique role?

A quick look through the kits and it seems most kits have 7 or fewer slots being used, the max being 8 ( i think). So it seems most kits have room for dragging.

There's one thing all kits have that i think the 8 slot kits could live without, melee. I only see two real uses being the rare stabbing of a totally oblivious player or the arrest function on INS. I don't imagine officers or spotters IRL would be "arresting" anybody, there's other people who should be doing that job and Breachers already have the shotgun to arrest with.

Having dragging at all is already awesome with just medics though.

We will not lose only knifes or arrest.
I'm not happy with losing the abilty to knife people, like you can do in vietnams bushes.
You cannot kill silently anymore and that is not good.

There exist other weapons that have the mechanic of the knife and has the itemindex 1.
Excample: idfkni_tar21smelee.
That's the one where you use your bottomstock of the rifle and punching the enemy.

Make it sense to have 7 people in the squad who can drag but losing their knife?

Not to me.

I'm just playing devils advocate here, i think its great already with just medics.

But whats more inline with the spirit (and name) of this game, playing rambo with knives or dragging your teammates out of danger? I know if was a medic and my guys waited for me to come drag someone instead of just doing it themselves id be pissed.

Also there have a been a few "features" that I enjoyed for their gameplay that have been removed for the sake of reality in the past.

I just want to drag away the other teams bodies so I can consume them while hiding in the bushes for stamina.

Most kits have nothing on slot 9, that could be used.
I see no "muh realism", or "muh gameplay" reason to not allow everyone to have option of saving their friends by puling them to safety.
If there is a reason against this, it can only be that it would cause crashes, or drop performance, or (put technical reason here).

Also could it be shovel right mouse button?

I think slot 9 is used for parashouts, when you have paradrops.

Letting everyone drag would mean huge impact to gameplay.
