So the game thinks my LMB is pressed down. I tried unplugging and replugging in my mouse and nothing. What should I do?
try unbinding the commands from the joystick columns
unplug your game controller.
The default mapping of the Joystick in "on foot" causes that BF3 thinks your fire button in pressed.
You must map your joystick correctly in "on foot" too, to fix this issue.
I just encountered the same.
Furthermore, you must not have an other controller such as the XBOX 360 Controller connected to your PC, or you will be unable to use the joystick.
Joystick support is very broken in BF3.
