Additional Melee Slot

(Not a question) THE MOD DOESN'T WORK!

Actually, it does. Don't be stupid; read the description. People have been saying the same thing for over two years and none of them bothered to read the BOLDED text in the description.

This addon assigns ALL melee weapons in the game an alternative slot, allowing the survivors to carry both a ranged secondary (pistols/magnum) and a melee weapon.

To switch to your melee slot:

B. PRESS 7 (Works for some users)
C. TAP 2 (Alternates between pistols and melee, works for some users)

Alternative script posted by Rokk

I made a script which enables the ''2'' button to toggle between pistols and melee. Type this in console (One line at a time!), or paste in autoexec.cfg:

bind 2 toggle
alias toggle "enable"
alias enable "alias toggle disable; slot2"
alias disable "alias toggle enable; slot7"

Added bonus: You'll be able to melee while downed.
(Ha, not really an intended bonus, just a feature that was kind of forced upon me when I set the melee slot to something else. Not much I can do about it.)

NOTE: Works best on LOCAL servers! This mod WILL NOT work unless you are:
1. HOSTING your own LOCAL server with this mod activated.
2. Playing in a local hosted game WITH the host having this mod activated.
3. Playing in a dedicated server WITH the host having this mod activated.
4. Playing in SINGLEPLAYER.


Before you come down and bash this mod and/or complain about this not working, consider the following:
a. Do you have any conflicting mods installed that will conflict with the additional melee slot? (Specifically weapon script mods that change/overhaul the stats of certain weapons.)
b. Do you have this mod installed in the first place?
[Yes, stupid note, but people actually ask me about this.]
c. Are you following the guidelines previously mentioned in the big giant NOTE notice?
I don't have time to help everyone who refuses to read basic steps. If you need assistance regarding the mod not starting up/working, please comment below and acknowledge that you've read this, and specify your problem.

Don't forget to like/favorite/comment if you enjoy this mod!

If you want a mod that only gives you incapped meleeing without the melee slot, go here:


I also have a mod that enables the use of all weapons while downed, check it out at:

Yeah it's a weird glitch. I'm not really sure how to fix that and I'm not sure it's possible without making the chainsaw unlimited.

there's a weird glitch where if your chainsaw runs out of fuel, if you're holding a magnum, It drops the chainsaw and replaces your magnum with a regular pistol. Idk it was just funny when that happened =3

this mod + Any weapons incapped + Unlimited Ammo = OP EVERYWHERE!!!!!

That's not how the mod should work and it is not what I intend it to do. If you want a mod like that, please make your own or download the many other available mods on the workshop.

Good gob, but this mod must have limited pistol ammo. Example 12 mags. What u think?

Make an autoexec.cfg if it doesn't already exist.

You have to paste it in autoexec.cfg for it to save.
