PC controls
I dont have a controller so i'd rather buy games that work just fine on a mouse and keyboard, since shank was a pretty bad port concerning the PC controls thus making it barely playable, i'd like to know if this game has the same issue or if the mouse and keyboard work alright and if not i'd like to know if at least there are modifiable keys.
thanks

I understand exactly what you asks cuz I was asking myself the same thing, and short answer is: PC controls are excellent (even keyboard).

The default key mapping is fine and even if you change it the game will adapt and change them in the mini tutorial you always got on right-top of the screen (so you don't have to escape/options/controls every 5mins). Very user-friendly and I'm having a blast right now.

Glad it meets approval guys! We did a lot of work to make the game feel as solid as we could on mouse & keyboard.

i agree the controls are not very good.

PC controls are as good as they could EVER be. If this is a port, it's perfect.

Glad to see devs taking their time to post on almost every thread i came across, this is rare nowadays.

The controls are very solid on kb/m, as well as windows controller! :D Feels like it was made for PC first as opposed to console. XD

You should be careful as if you are unlucky and the game thinks somehow you have an xbox controller plugged (which I don't btw) it will make evry tooltip/help in the game showing you the xbox controller key...
And as afar as I know there is no way to tell it I am playing with a ♥♥♥♥ing keyboard and mouse !
it even looks like some commands are wrong, I just bought the game and I am stuck trying to kill my first guy because it asks me to push forward and the X key, and nothing works...

Yes game is a crappy console port. The controls are awefull. The mouse don't work for attacking or grappling or even aiming. Its complete rubish.

^ This guy is a troll. The game plays beautifully on keyboard/mouse or Xbox controller. The port is just fine.

For me, the game is literally unplayable. It seems to think I'm using an Xbox controller, and I cannot execute anyone; it gets into a screen that says "match stick with arrow" and won't interpret anything as the X button. I can only get as far as the first bit in the tutorial where you have to kill someone.

EDIT: Nevermind, just found out about the -nocontrollers play option. All works fine now. Details here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/214560/discussions/0/882962960937816678/#p1
