Binding Keys in Wolfenstein Enemy Territory

Here is a quick tip for binding keystrokes to access features that normally are not available in Wolfenstein Enemy Territory. First off, access the console by hitting the ~ key. Then type /bind <keystroke> [command] where keystroke is the key on your keyboard or mouse that you want to use to activate the command.

The two commands that I learned recently are throwingknife and playdead. The throwingknife command lets you do just that, throw knives at enemy players while playdead lays your character down on the ground and takes a wounded position.

If you have a 5 button mouse you can even bind the throwingknife and playdead command to your back and forward buttons. For example: /bind mouse5 playdead would make you play dead and come back “alive” when you hit the back button.

I realize most of you probably don’t play Wolfenstein Enemy Territory but I get the occasional Googler coming here looking for tips, so I hope this helps. For a complete list of commands try typing cmdlist in the console and then use the “Page Up” and “Page Down” keys to scroll through the list.

  1. Hay Jeff you know the know the new KoRn song twisted transisters? Play it backwords i here some sublimital things that i cant make out.

  2. Since you asked Jace (in another post by accident I assume) my Enemy Territory screen name is All Seeing Eye.

    Though now that I'm done my video game class I should really uninstall it because it's a big waste of time. I only reinstalled it because I needed to get some screen captures for a presentation, but I haven't erased it yet…
