Enter The Gungeon: List of Controls, Key Bindings & Settings


The tutorial at the start of Enter the Gungeon gives you a good idea of what all the controls are and how you actually play the game. Although it’s likely that you will forget 1 or 2 of the controls and have to resort to checking a post like this!

Thankfully, Enter the Gungeon doesn’t have a lot of controls, making it not so complicated to play. You can also choose to play the game with a controller such as the Xbox One Controller on PC. This may be preferable to some, and can be configured in the settings menu.
