Basic attack action thinks it's held down permanently

  • What is your character name in New World: Watch Bookworm

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Diyu

  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: The game seems to think that the “basic attacks” action is held down. This means that I can’t sheathe my weapon or do several other actions such as talk to NPCs or loot containers without triggering a heavy attack. I also cannot perform a light attack, it will always do a heavy attack instead. If I’m using something melee like a hatchet or no weapon, instead of something ranged like a life staff of ice gauntlet, it’ll spam heavy attacks infinitely and I cannot switch to a new weapon or open the inventory to switch weapons.

  • Is this a bug or an exploit: Bug

  • How did the issue effect your gameplay: I can’t use light attacks or melee weapons (unless I want to spam heavy attacks forever), this makes it very difficult to really do much of anything in game.

  • Were you able to recover from the issue: No, relaunching the game, doing a full PC reboot, or even changing the “basic attacks” keybind hasn’t fix the issue.

  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: I’m not sure, it has been broken like this since I got home from work and started playing today. The first thing my character did was heavy attack without any input when I logged in.
