Best Fortnite Keybinds for PC – 2023

The best Fortnite keybinds are kind of a personal thing for everyone, a keybind layout for one person may not be great for another. The best approach is to try as many keybinds as possible, mix them up a bit, move them about a bit more, them change back until you find what works for you. Start off with the Fortnite Default Keybinds and change a key at a time.

Alternatively, you could try using a Pro-Gamers Keybind layout and see how you get on as a Pro! Carry on reading to find out more

Best Fortnite keyboard controls for Beginners

If you are a complete beginner, I would recommend playing with the default keys for a while, until you have got a grasp of game. During this time if there is a key that you feel is out of place, just doesn’t feel right or maybe you can’t reach that key very well, then change that one element. Play a few games and see how you get on, maybe you will need to change it again until it feels right.

Best Fortnite Keybinds

To improve your skills at Fortnite, you could look to the professional Fortnite players for inspiration, I have collected all the top players keybinds that openly shared they keybaord layouts and recorded them here. I would recommend reviewing all of the setups and then giving each one a trail run to see if it feels OK, once you find a setup that feels good, you now need to get Cracked at it!

NOTE: Take care when clicking on the RED X as this deletes the Keybinds for that row

All the keybinds can be changed from within the Fortnite Menu system, follow these steps to find the Keybinds:

  • Click the Cog Symbol – Near the Bottom of the side menu
  • Click Settings – At the top
  • Click on the 4 Arrow Movement Keys Icon (here shown in red square)

If you are looking for the best of the best Fortnite Keybinds then you have to look to the top players, the professionals. If these guys are cranking 90s at a rate that can’t be seen if your using a budget video card and there winning battles by the bus load then they must be doing something right.

Have a review of the best Fortnite keybinds the Pro-Players use, some of the Top Players I have listed below. Try some of the settings and see what works for you, there will be something that will give you that edge your looking for.

How do you reset Fortnite Keybinds to Default

Before changing any of the Fortnite Keybinds I would recommend you reset them to default or to one of the pre-sets. You do this by following the method above to get to the Keyboard Controls and at the top of the menu you should see KEYBAORD BINDING PRESETS for the pre-sets

  • Click on SELECT PRESET
  • Then Select the Pre-set you want, Standard or Old School
  • Click ACCEPT on the option you want

You could also click on RESET in the bottom right to reset them to default

Best Building Keybinds for Fortnite

Building is a huge part of Fortnite and its only recently that “Zero Build” has been introduced as an option for those players not liking the imaginary wall building aspect of the game, can’t see why…

Being able to build really fast and build what comes to mind is a skill in its own, i would recommend finding a Practice map on your own, best in creative that you can mess about in and try out some Keybinds.  You could even create a practice map for yourself and friend to train in, undisturbed. Not all Keybind will suit all players so try out some of the professional players keybind listed below.

I have formated all the Best Fortnite Keybinds the same way so it should be easy to compare players together.

Post in the comments your Best Fortnite Keybinds!
