Add a weapon to a unit. Infantry units can only carry weapons in their respective slots (primary, secondary and handgun), the addWeaponGlobal command will replace the weapon currently in a slot with the added weapon if it shares the same slot. This command can link items to respective slots as well, in which case the functionality is identical to linkItem. To make sure the added weapon is loaded and ready, add the magazine first.
This command was broken when used on dedicated server and fixed on Arma 3 logo black.png2.00.

If you do not remove weapon first, using this command from dedicated server will duplicate weapon.
