Hide crosshair or drop Dispersion Pistol

I want to fly around a map and take a few screenshots in Unreal (Gold 226). I have so far hidden the hud, weapon and set the crosshair to one pixel using standard controls. I've also set up keys to give me god mode, disable and resume AI, and a few different FOVs. All is fine, except...

Is there a way I could hide the crosshair altogether or drop the Dispersion Pistol? The weapon is given to me on all maps except Vortex, where there is no crosshair.

I have searched the web and found solutions for Tournament: to set all crosshair colors to zero, but it is not applicable to basic Unreal - where crosshair is one of a few preset choices. I prefer not to make extensive modifications to game files, but will look into the option.

Well most simple solution would be to type in command: KillAll Weapon (or DispersionPistol)

Alternative solution would be to enter feign death mode and type in cheat: Ghost (that'll keep you holstered)

There's other solution too. Set weapon bownscrosshair true

This option is there for custom crosshairs but in practice it hides it in existing weapons.

Console command ChangeCrosshair can be used to select other crosshair or hide it.
Console command "set HUD Crosshair 6" can be used in a single player game to hide crosshair immediately.

As dots said, feign death and ghost is the easiest way Smiley I allways use this method.

I believe this is, or should be, a bug in the UWindow options. If you use the old unreal menu by pressing Num Lock/Scroll Lock (Can't remember the default key) then you can hide it.

Thank you. The commands work. I like how the invisible crosshair also gets saved until I'm done with it.

Btw for dispersionpistol to be dropped alone, normally what you'd do is "set dispersionpistol bcanthrow true" except it is already true and dispersionpistol is an exception to the case...
And I'm not even sure why because I don't see anything obvious in the code...defaultweapon perhaps exception? I have no clue where that would be.

It's because it is the gametype's default weapon. From ThrowWeapon():
Code (C++)
Select All
(Weapon.Class==Level.Game.DefaultWeapon) || !Weapon.bCanThrow
