Additional Melee Slot

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

Actually, it does. Please don't be ignorant; read the description. People have been saying the same thing for almost over four years and almost none of them bothered to read the BOLDED text in the description.
I will not help anyone who just plain out says "it don't work help pls update loser"; you are not entitled to receive help, so please stop acting like I should cater to your every whim. I get enough salty spam and DMs as is regarding this for the past four years.

Provide information on what you did, in what circumstances, and at the very least give off the notion that you've read this description for me to properly assist with issues, as 99% of your problems can probably be attributed to whatever I addressed below.

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. This does NOT mean playing in a game by yourself. This means the singleplayer campaign mode!


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 I've had people add me and actually ask me about this without even subscribing.]

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:

The bots always prefer pistols. That's default game AI.
Overkiller029 Oct 18 @ 3:20am 
But the Bots now just using Pistols...

Possible, but that's beyond my scope now.

would it be possible to do a version of this mod where you carry both pistol types?

ik how to load with map but ill try sv_consistency
Hot Biscuits  [author] Aug 4 @ 5:14pm 
It's been a while, but try typing in the console

map *

where * is any map of your choosing (ex: map c1m1_hotel), and make sure to double-check the mod is activated in the addons menu to begin with.

If that doesn't work, I'm not sure if this will do anything, but try setting sv_consistency to 0, maybe that'll help?

a server hosted with the console can be a local server right?
