Bash/ Melee with Guns Bug - Spamming bash with guns can cause a bug
Need More Info, NormalPublic

Description

Experimental 1.05.152286
I have found a bug with bash/melee attack with guns. When I spammed the bash action by raising my gun and pressing "F" multiple times, my character performs the actions (multiple swings), but once the animations stopped, the character could no longer bash again. Guns can still be raised up and fired, but nothing happens when I press "F" to melee again. Jumping or changing to another gun (either two-handed or one-handed pistols) will not fix this. Only way to resolve this issue is relogging. This bug does not affect melee attack with melee weapons (knives, axes, etc,) though.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Put any firearm in your character's hands.
  2. Press and hold mouse 2 to raise your gun.
  3. Press "F" multiple times to perform several bashes (note: this bug will not be reproduced if you only bash once per raising of your firearm).
  4. Release mouse 2 to lower your gun.
  5. Now if you try raise your gun and bash again, you will notice nothing happens: your bash action is disabled across all guns.

It might be connected with your character's stamina level. It can be too low to perform melee gun attack, there are some other actions which are using stamina, they affected from this bug too.

Hello socktorn and thank you for the report.
Is it possible that the issue occurs under specific circumstances only? As we had no luck producing the issue according to your reproduction steps so far.
In case you come across any other information you could provide, that could help us in producing the issue, please let us know here.

Hi, Geez! Thank you for looking into this issue. Thanks to Dimas008's comment:

It might be connected with your character's stamina level. It can be too low to perform melee gun attack, there are some other actions which are using stamina, they affected from this bug too.

I tried to produce this bug with different stamina levels (carry different weight of items). It seems that only right at about 25% stamina (see the attached screenshot) the above bug can be reproduced. If my character has lower stamina, then he or she will not perform the bash action at all.
I also found out that dropping some items to free up stamina will restore the ability to bash. So this is more likely a feature rather than bug?
But interestingly, if I just simply relog without dropping anything, after logging back in, when raising gun and spamming bash, my character can perform a two-bash combo (swing twice from two different directions). Then the character will no longer be able to bash unless some weight is dropped.
So I would say the issue is solved because it’s more likely just a low stamina level preventing stamina-costing actions such as bash. But the “free” two-bash combo after each relog is still somehow unexplained.
