How to do actions that don't show up on key bindings menu?

Although the key binding menu just about lets you self-discover how to do actions with keyboard/mouse you're probably familiar with, some aren't displayed.

 

For example, I could not figure out how to melee while holding a weapon. There's key binding for how to do light and heavy melee as well as dodging, but what about melee with a weapon? Well, it seems it's done by pressing R when close to somebody. This is great except it shares the same key as reloading, so if you forget to do so, it starts the reloading animation first, then when it finishes you can melee.

 

Another one I having trouble with was how to sneak "faster". In case you're wondering, on a gamepad you can activate stealth mode by pressing down on left analog and once it's on you can move slightly faster while still being stealthy by tapping A on Xbox/Xbone and X on PS3/PS4). So what I figured out is that by activating stealth mode with L CTRL then double tapping it, you are now sneaking faster just like when using a gamepad.

 

 

WEAPON MELEE ( R )

FAST SNEAKING (double tap LCTRL)

 

Those are some I found, but I'm still trying to figure out:

 

1. How to turn around corners while in cover or hug corners. (Gamepad: while in cover, if you reach a corner, character leans in, you press Square/X on your gamepad and character hugs the corner). Now I realize Rockstar probably assumes that PC gamers are dextrous enough to move around a corner, but I like to do it sometimes just because you're still in cover.

 

2. How to move from cover to cover. In certain situations, if there's two sections of cover that are close enough, you press L1/LB? on the gamepad, and that causes your character to move smoothly across the gap into the next place where there's cover.

 

Those are about some of the actions that I haven't been able to figure out yet. Otherwise I think Rockstar did a pretty good job with the Mouse/Keyboard Controls. Feel free to share your ideas/suggestions/corrections to not only help myself but the rest of the GTA V PC Community here at Gtaforums.

Alternatively, you can simply press Left Shift while sneaking to toggle faster sneaking.

 

As for 2. (moving from cover to cover), I did it a couple of days ago by accident. I was behind the left section of cover, pressed and held D to lean out, and tapped Q which resulted in my character switching to the right side of cover. Like so:

And when you want to move behind corner from, you tap Spacebar ;)

 

Also, you can retract roof by hodling H, perform a roll when aiming by pressing Spacebar..but maybe these are in the Key Bindings menu.

Thank you DiscoPanda :D

 

I think in the past when I pressed shift while sneaking it took him off stealth mode. If I held it then it turned into a run, which is good but I just wanted to sneak faster... but it's been a while since I've revisited trying that out so I'll test it out for sure.

 

Thanks for the tips Tomas. I knew about spacebar but hadn't even considered trying to find out how to retract the roof. :)

Anyone know how to control yourself scuba diving?

I seem to be having trouble. The only key that seems to work is W and it's just plunging me into the sea bed?!

I still can't figure out how to interact with Chop, I go up to him and press E and nothing happens :lol:

 

Same with dismissing him, I had to run all the way to F's safehouse before he was dimissed lmao, I even pressed every key on my damn keyboard and it didn't work ;-;

You have to hold down shift to swim, WSAD just controls your direction.

@Thunderbanana(nice nick)

Press right button on mouse for "interact" with chop...if you press,chop will follow you.

Now,if you don't wanna walk anymore with chop,press the same but in front of chop's house.

About TRICKS,you need download ifruit and teach some things.
