We all know that one great thing about PC gaming is the ability to customize pretty much anything to your liking. From the hardware in your PC, to the very settings found within the game, there’s a myriad of options to adjust. But what about keybindings? Do you normally adjust them? And do you have a weird keybinding?
Say for instance you don’t like having to interact with the ‘F’ button and want to change it to something else like ‘E’ since a lot of other games do it. Or maybe you hate having to press ‘C’ to crouch like in most shooters such as the upcoming Battlefield 2042 or Call of Duty: Vanguard and would much prefer to bind it to ‘Ctrl’ instead. Maybe you don’t even like changing your keybindings, and would rather leave them as they are?
Whatever it is, we would like to hear about it, especially if you have any ‘weird’ keybindings like changing WASD to ESDF instead, or changing reload from ‘R’ to CAPS LOCK like a madman. But on top of that we’d like to know why? Is it because of comfort or functionality? Is it for accessibility reasons because you have a disability? Or is it simply to unify keybindings across different games so you don’t have to always re-remember the specific keybindings?
There’s lots of different reasons to change your keybindings, which just goes to further enhance the point that PC gaming is the ultimate platform for customization, and can cater to anyone of different needs. Who knows, maybe you’ll even try a new keybinding next time after reading these comments?
So what do you think? What is your weirdest keybinding? Do you normally customize your keybindings or just leave them as they are? Which typical keybindings do you change the most in games? And why do you change them? Let’s debate!
