Side buttons on gaming mice?

Post  Nickolaos on Fri Jul 10, 2015 1:43 pm

A while ago I bought my gaming mouse- http://gaming.logitech.com/en-au/product/g402-hyperion-fury-fps-gaming-mouse but for some reason I couldn't install the Logitech gaming mouse software. So I tried today and it worked! I adjusted my mouse settings and dpi. I was just wondering which would be the best keys to bind these to as a Spy main?

Omg I never thought of binding my push to talk! As for binding keys on my keyboard well whats the point of buying a mouse with side buttons if you cant use them.

I have one of my side mouse buttons bound to my primary and one to melee, means I can switch with my thumb.

One of my side buttons is last disguise, instead of awkwadly reaching for B. Couldnt play spy without it.

I bound "Thanks!" to it so I can thank my Medic when he occasionally heals me for 5 HP before switching to more important targets. It's the small things, I tell you.

Last disguise and team colour switch are on Q and E for me, but the latter is a bit redundant now I guess.

Ah I never use last disguise. It's second nature for me to use my index to hit 4 and select my disguise manually all the time.

I had my side buttons on g402 as my toggles for auto or single reload on spy.

B. It's fine for that, I just don't like using last disguise.

Oh well, thats what I kind of meant, that its awkward to reach for B, thats why I have it bound to my side button on the mouse.

Not that awkward for me, my thumb is right next to B whilst resting on space bar.

I just use the side buttons for my salty ass binds that consist of over 800+ chat binds.

Button 1 - Killed someone, rub it in their face
Button 2 - Died, excuse or whine like a bitch
