Other first person games will have a viewmodel rendered in a separate frame and will overlay it on to the main scene. A Sneaky Trick Most FPS Games Use - YouTube

All our first person models render in the world, Unreal uses deferred rendering. We can’t have a separate rendering layer to render the first person models on, like older games that use forward rendering. The solution for this is called panini projection, which is on my to-do list, but I have to go through every weapon one by one as it will completely change the offsets of the weapons.
