Dying Light 2 “Cannot bind mouse buttons” issue

So, there is a bug in Dying Light 2 at the moment, that is not letting people bind their mouse buttons. I think, this is something that was not intentional. I am pretty sure that Techland will add this feature soon. Check out this post from a Steam user:

Keybind issues
Hopefully they fix this soon, my middle mouse button changes my mouse sensitivity so pressing that in the middle of a game is a bad idea, but it won’t let me rebind it to my extra mouse button despite the first game allowing this, its small but annoying since i have to find a random key that isn’t being used.

In the meantime, you can use a software called Mouse Manager to rebind the mouse button.
