Thanks! The shortcuts will speed up the game.

Didn't use Q,E. I'll try.
CTRL+E is useful, got to know it from Tarkalak's playthrough.


Is it true?
If holding unconscious unit in one hand and knife weapon in other, Execute option is now available (on the knife I believe)

Not any more. It got removed a while back, presumably because it was too easy to kill tough enemies that way. You've got to shoot the corpses now. IDK if melee works on corpses, but I can't even use machetes on shrubbery :'(, so doubt that.

Melee damage against scenery was added at some point, so they removed the "shooting" melee weapons. You should be able to melee shrubbery now.

Not quite. Pickaxes and chainsaws are still in.

But I can't.  :(

Bigger stuff, yeah. But not these small bushes. Unless I pickaxe or chainsaw them.
