An idea for a Sword Block alteration

I know sword block isn’t popular here, though I myself have only one major problem with it:

It’s mapped to the melee button.

I.e., the button everybody reflexively hits as soon as someone’s in their face anyhow. This makes sword block not a ‘skilled, timed counter’ but a lucky reflex button mash. How to fix that? Simple: map it to another button. Like, the interact button.

Bam. Now sword blocking takes some thought.

The only fix that Sword Block needs is to be taken out back behind the proverbial chemical shed and shot in the head.

I personally think Sword Block should just be removed from the game. There are already so many ways to kill an enemy who has a sword:
-shotgun
-AL
-grenades
-concussion rifle
The only thing that needs to be changed is sprint/sword and evade/sword combo.
