Can using logitech's mouse button remapping get you banned?

★★ Newbie

Hi! I saw some videos online talking about the peacekeeper double-pump and wondered if you could remap the buttons on your mouse (mine is Logitech) to reload, switch between your weapons, and shoot. Is that bannable? !NOTE! I do not mean using a macro, what I mean is programming each button on my mouse, 1 for reload, 1 for weapon slot one, and 1 for weapon slot 2. My apologies for making you read all of this, it's kinda hard explaining on the internet. Also sorry if my grammar is bad, Language Arts isn't really my specialty.

Hey!

 

You can just use the options menu to do this.
If you use 3rd party software to remap keys it could be picked up by the anti cheat.

You should be able to use your mouse software to assign, rather than macro, a key to one of the buttons. You should be able to go into the app that cam with your mouse and click the relevant button to choose a key to assign. I would guess that single key macros won't be flagged as it's probably quite common for people to incorrectly assign keys this way. I know because I've done that myself.

 

I have no idea what the "Peacekeeper double pump" is.
