Changing the frame of a weapon seems impossible as far as I'm concerned (Or maybe I haven't tried enough). Although what you can do is make an attachable and attach it to the weapon with lua and you can change the frame of that instead of the weapon.

There are also sprite animation modes for HDFirearms via ini. I dont know if they can do what your looking for though.

Code:
SpriteAnimMode

    0 = NOANIM
    1 = ALWAYSLOOP
    2 = ALWAYSRANDOM
    3 = ALWAYSPINGPONG
    4 = LOOPWHENMOVING
    5 = LOOPWHENOPENCLOSE
    6 = PINGPONGOPENCLOSE


You can try each one and see if they do what you want. If they don't then you can try my method.

I think that HDFirearms are very specifically hardcoded to only use frames 000 and 001. Specifically, 000 at all times except when firing, and 001 when firing. The only exception is weapons with .ini spinup.

That said, as Coops pointed out, making the actual weapon invisible and adding an attachable with the weapon's sprite is probably your best bet.

The problem with that though is the weapon will show up behind the actor holding the weapon.

A work around to that is to just attach it to the weapon in INI and find the attachable in lua and change it from there.

You can force an object's frame in Lua (MOSprite.Frame). I don't know if the hardcoding will override it, though.

You don't need lua for that, make the magazine have the sprite of the rocket, the proper offset and Discardable = 0 (or 1 I don't remember), this way it will dissapear when it is fired and will reappear when fully reloaded.
