While meleeing a Zombie(Which seems to have gotta a lot more difficult with this patch) I would be swinging my cutting axe at a zombie, and on multiple occasions my character would whip out my compass. I attempted to remove the compass from my quick bar and move it around, it continued to happen. Since the meleeing has gotten harder, I was certainly more panic-y and was rapidly clicking my mouse which could have contributed.
- Legacy ID
1: In possession of compass(not sure if it is compass specific, it only happened like that for me)
2: Rapidly click to swing weapon
3: character would eventually pull out compass instantly
Had to leave to work, however assumed I should report this asap. Will try other combinations later.
Known problem look at the patch notes.
-Persistence (Events do not get loaded properly after server restart)
-Persistence (Server state can become corrupted due to grenades stored in containers)
-Melee (When using rapid left click there is a high chance that melee weapon will get switched)
-Broken shadows in some cases
-Zombies are unable to get into some of the buildings.
-Events (bad positioning on spawn, items might spawn below ground, can be seen on inventory screen)
This has been a "Known" issue for a while, and has been reported multiple times. Plus, you have kind of answered your own question here, *Stop panic spamming the left mouse button!* Just click once and "Hold", your player will repeatedly swing whatever weapon you have, spamming does Not make you swing it any faster.
I've been getting this since the 0.49 push to stable. When spamming LMB to hit zombies (live or dead) my weapon will often switch to the 3rd item in my hotbar. At least I noticed today it always seems to be the third item in my hotbar.
I've had this with the fire-extinguisher, fire-axe, the baseball bat and the cattle-prod. So it seems to be a general melee issue.
It doesn't seem to happen when hitting floor, walls or ceiling, but only zombies and maybe players or their bodies.
Interestingly, at one point you can see my character "stab" using the canteen. Something which is generally also not possible.
