yeah i know this sounds dumb, idk how i got in this situation

my game has decided that the semicolon is used to report people. whenever i try to unbind it the game interprets the semicolon as a command and ends the command. for example, when i type in "unbind ;", it returns "unbind <key> : remove commands from a key" cuz it sees ; as a way of ending the command. same with unbind ";". how do i unbind this key, preferably without wiping all my other commands.

TF2 knows the key as SEMICOLON rather than ;. So you just do: bind SEMICOLON ""

You have to type unbind semicolon instead of just unbind ;

If you're ever unsure of the syntax of key names, you can go into your keybinds menu and bind a random command to whatever key you need the name of. This will display the key's name for config purposes, and then you can just hit cancel instead of apply so it doesn't save the bind.

e:just realized someone else answered, but the trick I mentioned should still be useful for future reference

You can mouse over the keys here for a handy reference too.
