This has happened to me a couple of times today, the LMB stops working when in a fight with zeds. As a result you cannot attack with any weapons, no fists, no axes, no pistols or rifles. Only thing to do then is find the nearest ladder to get away.

It happens to me during a fight, usually about the 3rd zed in

Additional Information

If I log off and log back in it goes away for a bit but comes back. On Friday last week I uninstalled and reinstalled while the exp servers were down for an update. Ran well all weekend and yesterday. It started up again this morning. I have not changed any settings, I know this is the recommended fix but I can't change back anything I never changed in the first place.

attack sparingly, as long as you don't mash LMB it won't happen

^^ That is not a solution. Simplicity of solution does not excuse the problem. This happened to a friend and I during a prolonged firefight. We lost. We had stacked several bodies over about 20 minutes. We are certain it was even the same guys coming back for their stuff. We had 9 bodies stacked up and more guys coming but we did not even realize until after we died that we were not able to swing an axe, punch, or pull a trigger. I had felt that during the fight, but thought I had done something wrong due to the adrenalin that this game conjures. Afterwards we realized what the issue was. And we were mad! :-[

I think, during a fight, the inventory hotbar does not work right either. I know it does not work right very often already, but I think in a battle, it is even worse. I think it gets very confused in a battle scenario.
