World War 3: Default Controls & Key Bindings


GamingWorld War 3: Default Controls & Key Bindings

World War 3 recently saw its release on Steam. It’s thought to be a pretty solid alternative to both the Battlefield and Call of Duty franchise. Mainly due to it’s realism and mechanics.

Of course, with these features come a lot of key bindings. Some incredibly useful, some you will never use at all. Some you may wish to pay attention to are ones such as throwing grenades, using gadgets, marking enemies and using your melee attack.

Below, we have a quick list of the default controls as well as where you can change them. Whilst we have covered a few more guides for World War 3 here at PwrDown!

Controls & Bindings

As mentioned before, there are a lot of controls in World War 3. You can access them by heading into the Settings menu, then the Bindings area.

At the moment, it seems that World War 3 doesn’t have support for the Xbox One or PS4 controller, and I personally doubt it ever will. You are however able to change the default bindings to anything you choose. There are 3 different sections: Soldier, Vehicles & Common.

In the Soldier section, the controls are as follows:

  • Move: WASD
  • Sprint: Left SHIFT
  • Jump: Spacebar
  • Crouch: Left CTRL
  • Prone: Z
  • Fire: LMB
  • Aim: RMB
  • Change Sight: MMB
  • Reload: R
  • Change Shooting Mode: N
  • Toggle Laser: T
  • Lean Left: Q
  • Lean Right: E
  • Look around: Left ALT
  • Mark: X
  • Interact: F
  • Grenade: G
  • Melee: V
  • Switch Between Weapons: Mouse Wheel or 1, 2
  • Gadget: 3
  • Repair Kit: 4
  • Start Transmission: 5
  • Toggle Radar: P
  • Strike 1-4: 6, 7, 8 and 9
  • Use Taunts: F1, F2 and F3

That covers the on foot and soldier controls. We aren’t going to cover the others, as there are way too many. Instead, I recommend you take a look in the bindings section yourself.
