While standing with a 1-hand melee weapon with raised fists, players can't crouch
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The one-handed melee weapons (TRIED WITH MACHETE, BAYONET AND HAMMER)can't be used in crouch position.
If you are standing up, and you are holding the 1-hand melee with fist raised (attack position) you can't switch to crouch, unless you unraise the fists.

Once you are crouched you can't fight. {F30945}

Additional Information

I tried the problem with machete and hammer.
The situation is uncomfortable, because you are allowed to hold 2-hand melee weapons and raise them to attack from both standing and positions, and even move in the while! So if i want to attack with this items i need to stand up
