Help, please.
I have scoured every support forum related to this game but I haven't come across the problem I am now having:
The "Fire/Punch" action does not work. It's not my controller and it's not my mouse. No matter what I map it to, my weapon simply will not fire. I uninstalled and reinstalled and I checked the cache integrity. Nothing has helped.
On the way, I discovered fixes for other aspects of this notoriously bad port. Any suggestions are very welcome, I know it was only five bucks but I'd hate to just give up, and I have no idea what to do. Thank you in advance!

The only thing I can think is that you must hold down AIM before firing. I play using a 360 controller; I have to hold down left trigger, then press right trigger to fire. For mouse, I believe it's RMB plus LMB.

No dice, dude. It is also the "punch" function that does not work at all.

Have you swapped mice and/or keyboards?

I've tried firing with a gamepad, a mouse, and mapped to my laptop's keyboard. The "aim" function still works on all of the above. I suppose I could try a different keyboard or mouse or controller, but I really don't think that's where the problem lies.

is the mouse plugged in or broken?

Yes and no. It's not the input, guys XD
I'm pretty sure it's the game.
