I'm trying out this game but don't have a manual. As far as I understand you equip a sword in your right hand and a gun goes in your left. For the life of me I don't know how to swap weapons. think So far I've been using the sword because it's in my right hand. But I prefer ranged weapons and would like to shoot holes into some of my opponents. I can't change them in inventory and it makes no difference which mouse button I click. Can anyone give me some weapon swapping tips?

Tree's up but will decorate on the weekend. Sure I'll do your tree - so long as i don't have to string the lights. yes

I've played a bit more but I still don't know how to change weapons. hardwall The link to the tips states that I should be able to switch weapons on the fly but they don't say HOW. The options on the load screen also don't say how. It doesn't matter whether I right or left click, it won't work from the quick slots either. I can't switch them in inventory either. I am really stuck. I love fighting from a distance - just hate to get my clothes dirty.

Rowan, I'm a ranged baby too. I'll bet it's something really simple that they think everyone knows, but that clearly, everyone doesn't.

I don't have this game, but maybe one of the other Darksider will. wave

Rowan, I haven't played the game but I read that you switch between ranged and melee weapons by using hot keys. Try using 1 and 2.

Pokey, I've tried that and it doesn't work in Risen 2. It works in Risen 1. Right now my pistol is completely useless.

It wasn't in the manual? I hope we find out soon. I'm planning on playing it.

Gamepressure has a good walkthrough and lots of informations about firearms and everything else on that game. I used it a lot when I started the game. I thought the use of firearms was very complicated and played with the sword.

Rowan, do you have bullets in your gun? It won't fire without them.

I found a post that said the button for using the left hand action was E. luck And let us know puppy

I took out my old saves and yes, you use E to fire a pistol. You must choose it in your inventory as the weapon to use in your left hand as opposed to sand or coconuts to throw. With a sword in my R hand, I shot my pistol using E Now you cannot aim with a pistol, it is the game who aims for you. I remember using it only when in deep trouble. I just found a muskett in my inventory: placed it in my R hand instead of the sword and... voila!!! It works like my sword using middle button on my mouse!!! I was quite surprised as I have not played this game in months, as I lost interest in the middle of it!!!
Correction: Had A shotgun, put it in R hand, arm it with middle mouse, aim with R mouse, shoot with left mouse.
