Kick bound to mouse button, sometimes swings instead



  • Wondering if anyone else has experienced this:

    I’ve bound ‘kick’ to a mouse button (I’m not at home now but I think it’s mouse button 4).

    The kick works beautifully until I’m in the middle of combat. I can run up to a player and kick him, I can kick the air when just hanging around, but in the middle of fighting the button somehow initiates a swing attack, and from memory I think it’s an alt-swing.

    Again, I can run up to someone and kick them before getting into the mix with them, and I can kick freely and repeatedly when nobody is around, but once I get into combat with feints, combos, parries, the button seems to perform the alt-swing instead.

    The funny thing is that I get a lot of kills this way, lol. I’ll go to kick the player back, but I swing instead and it seems to hit most of the time.

    If this is something that devs/mods wanna look into, I can get all the necessary info for you later in the week when I have time from home. Don’t wanna go through all that hassle though if this is only happening to me since it’s not game-breaking.

    edit: one extra thing to mention, I have the other ‘extra’ mouse button bound to alt-overhead attack and it works fine. That would be mouse button 5 I guess?



  • The game lets you bind more than one move to the same button. Make sure you dont have a swing or alt swing already mapped to the button you assigned kick.

    Ahh you know i’ll check that, thanks dude. I verified the kick is mapped to F and MB4, but I didn’t go looking at the alt attack binding.

    If that’s the issue I’ll update this thread and request a mod to delete it.

    EDIT: Yep, the alt-slash was default-mapped to that mouse button for some reason. Case closed.

    If you’re still having issues, post all of your keybindings from the UDKGame.ini (or just attach the whole thing) and we’ll take a look.



  • Something similiar happens here, too:

    I have bound Sprint on mousebutton 4 and sometimes it triggers stab instead of sprinting, although I’m 100 % sure I didn’t use stab at that moment but sprint. Happens quite rarely though, mostly after blocks or getting blocked.
