This can exist without cover system though likely requires more complex control mechanism. One that allows shifting the wielded weapon to the side and around a corner while view is otherwise mostly or completely blocked. Cases where the weapons or such are always offset to the sides should not count, something else should be more appropriate for such.
Implied: cover system (not necessary with sufficiently complex control system)
