Description

Right now, when using the mousewheel, no matter how
many time you move it up (or down) the game switches
only to the very next weapon. I figure it's relatively
easy to get the game to allow you to skip that weapon
if you do the mousewheel again.

Perhaps I'm not being clear. Let's say you have a
Pistol, Shotgun, and Rocket Launcher. You're low on
ammo for the shotgun, so you're using your pistol to
conserve as much ammo as possible. You turn a corner
and spot some enemies in the distance. Most players
would flick the mousewheel twice to attempt to
instantly switch to the rocket launcher - but they
cannot, they switch to the shotgun. A second flick of
the mousewheel, once the shotgun is up, will bring the
Rocket Launcher.

I hope I'm being clear enough; please ask me to
elaborate further if necessary.

That would be nice, I recently got back into using the
numbers again like back in the day, because of this problem.
