Bug where you cant aim down while firing using WASD

Post by Eth » Wed Sep 01, 2021 9:39 pm

I've been using this scheme and i noticed that aiming down while firing doesn't work. The weird part is it only happens while firing, just aiming normally I can aim up and down. It only happens while firing. I'll link the steam page for the layout I'm using and a YouTube showing what I'm trying to explain so if you don't get what I'm explaining.

If you need me to elaborate/are confused about what I'm saying. I'll happily reply.

Could very well be keyboard ghosting, an issue specific to the hardware of your laptop and not necessarily an issue with the game.

Well when I try this exact layout just instead of WASD I used ESDF, it works perfectly fine. But keyboard ghosting is probably it, I don't know much about keyboard/computers. Either way, thanks for the help!

yeah, most likely it's not a bug, it's just a problem with the keyboard. I used to have a laptop were i could use aim with arrow keys and Hold S to aim and fire with A. On my old external keyboard i could aim up and down, but not fire as i was moving my aim, making machine guns pretty much useless. Fixed when i bought a new Keyboard.
