    ...For a more fluid battle experience.

    I hate scrolling through weapons in TF2 and I find it fiddly with my shite mouse wheel. I know there are numbers and stuff you can press for each slot but in the heat of the battle it seems a bit slow if you need to change to 3 separate weapons.

    For the sniper I suggest assigning the Jarate to right click on the Kukri (perhaps change it to a charge for distance like the Sticky launcher so we could still see the Jarate animation). Same could go for the scout's critacola/bonk with the normal bat. Completely optional of course but it would be nice to have a bit of customisation for each weapon's controls.

    Any ideas?

    Do what my friend did and bind Medic to Tab, then
    Primary weapon to q
    secondary to e
    melee to f
    and build/destroy/disguise to 1/2

    I thought binds were broken for some reason (after the ones I had broke). Ah well, I'll give it a try. Would be nice if it was possible to do it inside of TF2. Cheers Aly.

    Nope, binds do perfectly work.

    Should be something like: bind yourkey "slot1"

    Just put this into console each time you launch the game, or put it in your autoexec.cfg.

    Or for class specific things just use the soldier.cfg, pyro.cfg, sniper.cfg etc
