Special Weapon Mechanic not working for Melee weapons on Psycher

Issue Resolved
Long story short, if you have a mouse that alternates what it’s “side buttons” are… be aware of what setting it’s on. Mine was not in the default setting, so the Mouse5 button was instead acting with a different function that I was not aware of.

Issue Description:
When playing my Psycher and equipping any melee weapon. the special attack mechanic does not work. It will work for ranged weapons, but not any of the melee weapons.
Example: When using the combat axe… the uppercut animation and attack does not happen when pressing the special attack key/button. When using the auto pistol, the key/button function correctly by turning on the light for it’s special ability.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Equipping and attempting the special weapon attack on any melee weapon on my psycher specifically.
2. Using the melee weapon on any map including the Psychinarium (however you spell it)
3. It will work on my other characters.

Mission Name (If Applicable):
