Please just add a Lastweapon option!

This would literally take less than 5 minutes to code, and the update size would be miniscule. Valve, if your crack team of spies are reading this, please add a Lastweapon option to the controls. I'm tired of having to go through a bunch of nonsense just to switch between the two weapons I want to.

The left and right bumbers force me to go through some extra weapons to get to where I want (especially annoying for Spy and Engineer, where going from knife to sapper makes me open up the disguise menu, same with engie), and the D-Pad forces me to stop moving (especially annoying for every class).

If there was a lastweapon key, Spies would actually be more effective, trust me on this.

I have this same problem with engie.

Try to shotgun someone, and I pull out my wrench.

This is probably the strangest gripe I've ever seen here.

Or you can just keep playing the game and, hopefully, you'll adjust to switching the right way, instead of whining to Valve to fix such a minuscule thing for you.

What are you talking about, spies don't need to do more than "RT + LB" to stab and sap. Knife and sapper are right next to each other.

Unnecessary and don't go saying "incredibly easy to code" and "minuscule update" when you have no idea what coding is.

While I do believe that this is unnecessary, it WOULD be trivial at best to code into there. It'd be an extra line entry in the options window, and an extra block in the options resource file.(My guess is that it'd take about 479 seconds to get fully inserted)

That would be good, except I imagine in the heat of the moment hitting the back button would be a bit awkward.
