So, some background info: I tend to play southpaw/bumper jumper style, but I think this could work for any control type. Basically, it would make using sliding much more easy for me, as I have to shift my thumb away from the right stick to my buttons to press slide normally. (And shift my left thumb over to the right stick to avoid cancelling the run.)
So, the suggestion: can we have an option where we can use the run key to trigger slide when we’re already running? As in if you have the option where you merely click it to start running and don’t have to hold it down, it makes sense, because if you press the run button while running, you… continue to run, hence why I think that could be used to initiate a slide instead. And you have to run to initiate the slide anyway, so having this option doesn’t take anything away from the control sceme. AND if you have the controls set to “hold the button down” instead, then maybe have it so that you slide if you let go and quickly click it again? Or something?
Just a thought that struck me when trying out said slide mechanic.
