Keybinds You Need To Know
BattleBit Remastered is more complex than it looks. To help you navigate the massive maps, you’ll want to know every subtly of the controls — and there are lots of keybind controls the game doesn’t explain. Here our all the keybinds we think you need to know.
- [Middle Mouse] – Used to ping. Ping objectives to help guide your team. Ping enemies and vehicles to easily target specific problems on the battlefield. This also gives you extra XP.
- Hold [Middle Mouse] – Open the build menu. Everyone can use the build menu, not just the Squad Leader. Right-click to exit the menu. Regular troops can deploy sandbags as cover, while the Squad Leader can place a Respawn Beacon.
- [Alt+Scroll Wheel] – Change the sights on guns for accurate shots at longer range. Especially useful for Recon. Use with a Rangefinder accessory to accurately zero your sights.
- While ADS [Scroll Wheel] – Switch optics. If you have multiple optics equipped, you can rapidly switch between them while Aiming-Down-Sights.
- [C] – Default crouch toggle. You can set other keybinds to always toggle crouch, or stick to [C].
- Toggle [Q] / [E] – [Q] and [E] are default keys for leaning. You can also change settings so leaning is a toggle. Incredibly important so you don’t have to hold even more keys at the same time.
- [F] – Default key for dragging. Keybind healing item use to [F] to heal and drag at the same time. Incredibly useful.
- Tap [R] – Standard reload. You’ll remove your magazine and place it in your pack to be reused later.
- Double-Tap [R] – Quick reload. You’ll dump the magazine on the ground instead of storing it. While reloading, you can walk over it to recollect.
- [P] – Combine magazines. Press to take the bullets from used magazines and combine them so you have a full (or more full) magazine.
- [H] – Check magazine. Press to check how many rounds are in your current magazine.
- [X] – Switch firing mode. Toggles between full auto, burst and semi auto.
- [Space] – When dead, you can tap [Space] to respawn. Select a teammate then spam Space. You’ll respawn as soon as your teammate is out of combat briefly.
- [F1 – F8] – Used to swap seats in vehicles. Easily swap to the gunner seat if the gunner has been downed.
- [L] – Toggles on Headlights when driving vehicles. Not very useful unless you’re on a night map. Turn off headlights when approaching enemy-controlled area or you’ll be easy to spot.
- [M] – Opens the map. Basic but incredibly important tool when planning.
- [V] – Proximity chat. Speak only with players in close proximity. Your enemies can hear you if they’re close..
- [B] – Squad chat. Over the radio, only your squadmates can hear you. This is the most common chat you’ll want to use.
- [N] – Leader chat. Talk to the Squad Leaders if you’re a Squad Leader to coordinate strategy.
- [T] – Toggles on / off flashlight attachments. Not required for Tactical Flashlight — the Tac Flashlight automatically activates when ADS. Use this to blind enemies in close combat.
- [N] – Toggles on / off nightvision. Important for night maps. Watch out for enemy flares or flashlights — they’ll blind you with NVG on.
