Recently, I've been playing with a controller because my mouse broke. I was fighting a spider until my attacks started delaying. Holding and/or spamming X on the controller does not do constant attacks, instead having a short delay. But, it works when there isnt a target to attack. And it was working just fine for me before. also the controller I was using was an xbox series x controller and mods were enabled
Use any controller to play. Attack the air, then attack any monster with a tool.
