Grabbing pushable item makes character push uncontrollably [Video] [Puzzle Spoiler]

Recommended Posts

This is so incredibly annoying, it's ruining the game for me. Is this specific to PC keyboard+mouse controls?

Steps to reproduce:

Go up to a pushable object

Click

My character pushes forward about 3 steps very slowly even if I'm holding a direction. While continuing to hold this direction it is not moving at all and I have to tap a couple times to get it to actually control it and start moving it.

This produced an issue for me on The Island.

PUZZLE TEXT SPOILERS & IN YOUTUBE LINK!!!!!

I'm trying to grab hold of my boat and I cannot grab it because my character insists upon pushing it back in the water. Just on the cusp of being able to control my character, I am too deep in the water and I lose my

grip on the boat. I can't progress!

I understand that E grabs as well but no matter what, any grab will begin to push in the direction I am looking. Any other ideas?

Edit: finally understood your suggestion and was able to pull it. It is a major mistake to expect users to use the mouse to grab things and have it function much worse than the E button. The E button is entirely unintuitive because it is right next to the MOVE key so I am expected to use 1 finger to hit two buttons.

The solution is to fix the mouse controls. It's pretty broken.
