Cycle through weapons

Q for previous weapon and E for next weapon, in example: If you're using weapon slot 5 and press Q you go to weapon slot 4 or less if not present, and vice versa.

The button for panels could be moved to F.

This is a great idea for players who are uncapable of going through weapon slots 6-0 without leaving the mouse.

Silverteen already mentioned why this would be more beneficial.

good idea, i had trouble playing sniper maps, switching between sniper and sword, i have to set it up manually
(press 4 and 0 then i can switch between them), everytime i respawn ;~;
Wait, how did you find this?

I might be wrong but I thought you could use the mouse wheel to cycle through weapons.

It's too sensitive and it can freeze the game at times.

OP said buttons could be used by the F key since E would be for switching weapons

My bad, how did I not see that?

Cool little idea but it's going to take time for some people to get used to. Other than that, I would see better mastery of using lots of weapons at once.

what about just configurable keys
i mean lets say you have a mouse with buttons 4 and 5, and you want to use them to cycle through weapons, so you can go in and change the hotkeys! maybe this could affect all of pb2, i mean i want to throw grenades using tab and see the score using my middle mouse button, someone should dbe able to do that, like in any game... but not pb2

It's a great idea too and something we should have had since release, who knows why it didn't make it.

Great idea. I've lost track how many times I've got killed due to slow weapon switching.
