Re: Model animation question

For single-player games, you might not even have a main character model, so it'd just be the 1st-person weapon animations (look at HL2, the main character is never seen, not even in reflections, so he has no animations - just the guns are animated).
However if it's a multiplayer model, the player will need to have every animation, so that other players can see him moving properly... run, jump, crouch, attack, whatever.
Bear in mind weapon animations in 1st person sometimes show the hand or arm of the player, but this is not the same model as other players will see in the 3rd person.
