So I have been trying (and failing) to get this menu I'm making to list the weapons automatically via an array. Problem is, the weapon name is blank in the menu but if I click the option it will still give the weapon. Below is what my script looks like right now.

Code:
standard = GetArrayKeys(level.zombie_weapons);
for(i = 0; i < standard.size; i++)
{
    self addOpt("standard", standard[i], &zm_weapons::weapon_give, standard[i]);
}

It's based on CabCon's menu base so the first parameter of addOpt is the menu to add the option to, the second is the string (which is where the problem is), the third is the function to call and the fourth is the arguments to pass to the function.

Yes, this is actually correct because Black Ops 3 treats weapons as entities instead of just strings. You can't display an entity as a string. In order to do this, you have to use fields of the weapon entitiy. Field for weapon name: .name

Corrected script:
Code:
standard = GetArrayKeys(level.zombie_weapons);
for(i = 0; i < standard.size; i++)
{
    self addOpt("standard", standard[i].name, &zm_weapons::weapon_give, standard[i]);
}

I tried standard.name but it's still the same problem unfortunately. Is there anything else that should be added anywhere?

This should work:
Code:
standard = GetArrayKeys(level.zombie_weapons);
for(i = 0; i < standard.size; i++)
{
    self addOpt("standard", standard[i].name, &zm_weapons::weapon_give, standard[i]);
}

The issue could be the string length. Are you using one string to display your menu options?
