What's your keymap?

If there's already such thread, forgive me and delete me :P

I am interested how do you guys have your keys mapped. I am seriously lacking with some of them and can't seem to come up with usable setup.
Except for the standard movement keys and sprint (and those map-related and other unimportant things), I have:
crouch (hold) - left alt
crouch (toggle) - caps lock
prone - c
select knife - mouse wheel up
melee attack - v
throw grenade - upper mouse thumb button
toggle primary - lower mouse thumb button
toggle gadget 2 - mouse wheel down

It sort of works, but I have some problems with crouch/prone and knifing. In fact I am not even sure how useful crouching really is, because it usually only helps me die quicker, but then again - for a noob there is always huge room for improvement.

So what are your keys for the most important actions?

I stick with the default key bindings for the most part, except that I've configured a few macros for some mouse buttons: toggle primary/secondary weapons, drop a med kit, revive with paddles and switch immediately back to primary weapon, accept revive and switch immediately to primary weapon.

When I played TF2, I liked to have everything right around the asdw keys.
Q--weapon 1
2--weapon 2
E--melee weapon
I don't recall what else I had set up, I haven't played TF2 in ages.

I have only changed a few things to have easier access to the important keys.
So as infantry my key bindings are:

WASD - moving
Shift - sprint
Ctrl - Crouch(hold)
Alt - Prone(toggle)
Spacebar - Jump
Q - spotting
E - enter vehicle/use
Y - bipod
R - reload
F - toggle gadget 1
G - toggle gadget 2
Mouse wheel up - toggle primary
Mouse wheel down - toggle secondary
Mouse button 4 (left tumb button back) - knife attack
Mouse button 5 (left tumb button front) - grenade

Alternative i would choose:

F - quickswitch (between primary and secondary)
Mouse wheel up - toggle gadget 1
Mouse wheel down - toggle gadget 2

Teamwork is where players function by themselves, but their effectiveness is multiplied when they work together. Not a checklist of "did we bring a healer so we can start playing?"

Quotes of wisdom (maybe)

I'm a battlefield player, good sir. I don't play metro.

PC is no longer PC master race. It's PC mustard race, because consoles need to ketchup :'D

DICE gave so much into making commander better, but lemmings be lemmings I guess.

As a good guy that don't want to use overly glitched weapons, I'll quit using the MTAR and switch to the ACWR until it's fixed

The world needs more people like you

+1, I think we're all in agreement that more MrT3as would be an awesome thing :love:
Although if that was the case they'd use up so much of the world's awesome that there'd be none left for the rest of us! :D

yes, I know, I'm a big-ass hypocrite

Only major key change is CAPSLOCK for toggle primary\secondary. Good location, only problem is I'M ALWAYS SHOUTING IN CHAT!

I have crouch, prone, and reload mapped on my Logitech G500 buttons.

E - enter vehicle/use
R - reload
F - quickswitch
