Gaming Borderlands 3: Controls & Key Bindings for PC

Borderlands 3 has a lot of controls on PC, although a lot are ones you’ll likely never use. And some you have probably never heard of. Did you know holding Z opens a quick wheel where you can duel players and do emotes?

You can edit your key-bindings at any time in the game. All you have to do is open the main menu by pressing ESC, choose ‘Options’ and then ‘Controls’. At the top of the window, you’ll see some tabs. Head along to the third one along, labelled ‘Keyboard’.
