Why didn't valve make the vaccinator use the reload button?
Whether this was mentioned before or not, I'm just thinking that Valve should've made the Vaccinator use the reload button to change resist types instead of an entirely new bindable key. Is there a reason why this was not implemented? (Or it was already done because I haven't been using it).

Maybe it has something to do with auto-reloading.

Because I, as a hardcore Auto-reloader, wouldn't be able to change from bullets if it was like that.

Why not the "redisguise" key. It would be perfect. And for you autoreloaders, I'm pretty sure Valve would make it so it wouldn't constantly cycle through the resist types automatically when using the vaccinator. Even if you don't use the reload button, it's better then a completely new bind.

isnt reload out of the option since the rescue ranger also uses attack 3

sounds very good indeed, now lets hope there will be no attack3 item for spy ever

I took the time to make the script, I tested it and it works. Just change Mouse5 to any other button that works best for you. Or you can make Attack3 work with a different key, like redisguise.

//Reload and Attack3 together like a family
alias +vac "+reload; +attack3"
alias -vac "-reload; -attack3"
bind "MOUSE5" "+vac"

More then likely the button was added since mouse3 was unused and autoreload may be an issue.

If you are a controller user however I made a button config for someone prior to the vaccinator change to accommodate for the new features such as voting and now attack3. if you're a controller user and would like to try it I have the dl below with two generic button configs and an undo config along with a readme with simple instructions and stuff. Keep in mind I made it specifically for one person that was attending a LAN party for a few who weren't comfortable using a keyboard and mouse. It's completely user preference. - Xbox 360 controller only

Main point of the config is Y button switches between secondary and primary and right bumper toggles between melee and previous weapons. Still needs a little cleaning up as well.

is it really so hard to press the mouse wheel? unless you are that one person using a track ball mouse3 isn't an issue. and even if you are, keybinds
