It would for most of OB, it was only in the last patch it was removed. However if you had it set to autofire before the last OB patch it still worked till they closed the beta down. of course now we all have new characters so it's not working for anyone.
Ground combat sucked before with autofire now without it is unbearable! FIX THIS NOW CRYPTIC!!!
Agree. I hate to complain, but really, mashing the "1" key does nothing but wear out my keyboard and cause long term damage to my hand (I should know, I've suffered RSI and the like before). Cryptic, this is seriously a stupid thing to remove.
