Hello. This has been an issue that has been percolating in the back of my mind for some months now (especially after I watched this video from Mark Brown), but has really come to the forefront of my mind now that I have come back to the game after kinda burning out in the WoM beta.
Simply put, all too often my hands hurt after playing Vermintide 2. Plus I’m no long as young as I used to be and some days I just lack the manual dexterity to deal with some of the more complex move inputs. I would like some ways to rebind things natively in the game and maybe add some more toggles.
Currently there are some stop gap solutions for this via programs like Autohotkey, but they’re, ya know, hacky stop gaps. Plus they tend to be latency sensitive.
So here’s a simple list of things I would be overjoyed to have access to in the base game on PC.
This is pretty self explanatory I feel. Sometimes I want two buttons to be able to perform the same action. A great example of this is found in Sienna’s venting. I want a vent button that I can hold down while still being able to move in all directions and dodge. The default key, R, doesn’t work for that. But I also want to keep reload on R because it’s very familiar. Right now I have reload/vent bound to my M3 button for the former and use an AHK script to also bind R to the same action, but I can’t think of a good reason why I should have to resort to such an extreme method for something so basic.
Separate, discrete inputs for push, push-attack, heavy attacks, etc.
This goes back to my old bones not really being very nimble at times anymore. Sometimes I mistime things like holding LMB for a split second too long or not enough. Which results in me doing a push when I want to do a push attack and vice versa. Once again I have an AHK script that sort of helps with this issue, but its very sensitive to latency.
Option to hold LMB to chain light attacks for melee weapons.
Spamming left click for extended periods is rough on my index finger. And frankly I play hard enough that even though I used AHK to rebind light attack to my mouse wheel over a year ago, sometimes my finger hurts from scrolling too much. Adding in a discrete heavy attack button would make this a viable in-game option and my finger would be very relieved
To piggyback off of the former. A toggle option for both light attack spam & ADS.
If we can toggle crouch, why not these two as well?
Constructive commentary welcomed.
