Just to expand on the bayonet idea. A bayonet, whether sword or pointed. Should be a spare item you can draw when not fixed onto your firearm.
Did soldiers actually use their bayonets as swords tho?
I think their hangers were for that purpose

I also hope to be able to play without having it attached, maybe for more accuracy ?

They're long, strong, pointy things. I think they'll use them whatever way they wanted. They're tools. It would be nice to have the option to use them on their own though.

How about just a reload time increase?

Anything that is a bit different between having it fixed or not

Less reloading time and more accuracy would help light inf.

How about, we don't have crosshairs?

Yeah Iron sights would be amazing. I think the screenshot showed it. From Steam Greenlight. I thought I saw it.

Might depends on which person you are playing

Most of the firearms don't have anything but a small notch close to the end of the barrel, there aren't any sights to them, however it would be nice to have a serverside option to force remove the crosshair for all players on the server. Looking down a barrel would be a nice change.

EDIT; Found it. Not exactly a weapon with a sight, but it's nicer than some arcadey crosshair.

Something like this for a musket ironsight?  One thing that I hated about NW how people could snipe with regular muskets.

Crosshairs are necessary due to the lack of depth-perception in games. No crosshair only makes sense if you're playing a character with one eye.
