Agreed. Cycling through items is ridiculous and time-consuming. Not that it needs to be said, but when I have a bunch of stuff strapped to my body, I'm not going to grab one, then put it away and then grab another, put that away and finally grab the one I want.
Each explosive slot needs a bind key.
@tooth-decay You misunderstand. I'm not talking about the generic 'select equipment' key.
In Counter-Strike, every type of grenade can have its own bind. So you could bind the F key to flashbangs and just hit F whenever you want to use one instead of having to hit the grenade key over and over to get to the flashbang.
(But don't confuse this for a Halo or COD style grenade key. It just selects and equips the grenade. It doesn't automatically prime it to throw.)
It'd be a lot more convenient to use utility if Sandstorm implemented a similar mechanic.
