Bind third key to action
« on: 03:27 AM - 11/17/18 »
Hello, is it possible to bind a third key to change weapons? I use primary mouse wheel up and secondary mw down, but in BF 5 change fire mode is holding that button down, which isnít possible with the wheel. I would like to bind a third key...

Are they all the same button binding e.g triangle to swap weapon?

I'll typically bind swap weapon to scrolldown, with the hold action bound to middle-click, which is possible with a mousewheel.

That's what I do too, it's too intuitive to not do this in games when Y is assigned to mouse wheel.

newpaxxx, it can be done but requires setup. With expert mode enabled go to the first aux page you have, check 'enable', uncheck 'inherit', rename the page and set the activation key to the key you would like to hold Y with. Go to the button section and assign Y to the activation key of this page. Y should now be held when holding the AUX page.

I use scrollup for Reload, scrolldown for Swap Weapon, middle-click for Hold Weapon.
