Default PUBG Keyboard Controls – 2023

PUBG Keyboard Controls Guide, listed here in an easy-to-read format for quick reference. Keyboard controls can be a bit of a personal preference thing and so I feel it’s best to start of learning the default keyboard controls.

I would recommend learning/using the WASD keyboard controls as these are pretty standard across lots of games with only small variations. If you learn the PUBG keyboard controls then it’s an easy transition to Apex Legends or Fortnite. Doing this means you will not need to learn a new layout apart from one or two keys.

What does WASD mean in games?

WASD Keys are the group of Keyboard Controls used by most games. They are located to the left side of the keyboard and utilise the top 2 rows of letters just below the numbers. Most games use this set of keys and so it’s easy, once learnt, to switch to other similar games.

What are the default PC PUBG Keyboard Controls / Keybinds

All the PUBG Keyboard Controls can be viewed via the Settings, Key Guide page and are listed below. If you manually change any keyboard controls / bindings then they will be reflected here. This is covered in How to change the PUBG Keyboard Controls

How to change the PUBG Keyboard Controls

If you wish to change the PUBG Keyboard Controls then this is covered in my separate guide:  How to change the PUBG Keyboard Controls.  The Best thing is to keep trying different layouts until you find the Best PUBG Keyboard Controls

I have included the Secondary Key slot in the tables below, alongside the default key as there are sometimes situations that it’s good to have 2 keys bound for a single action. Maybe if your used to Fortnite Keybinds and crouch using L Ctrl

How do you reset PUBG Keyboard Controls to Default

If you change your PUBG Default Keyboard Controls but then don’t like them and wish to roll back to the original controls, check on the Settings Menu, and on the bottom of each page you will see  APPLY   BACK   DEFUALT.   Click Default to return to standard.

Common PUBG Keyboard Controls

These are the most commonly used keys by most of the top games, if you keep with at least these keys as default then you will find it easier to transition quicker to other games. Of course, there is always exceptions to the rules and you should have your keyboard controls as comfortable as possible.

After playing Fortnite, where Crouch is Left Ctrl, and coming to PUBG is C and so this felt a bit odd at first but I now remap my Fortnite Keybinds to C. Use whatever Keyboard Control suit you best and feels comfortable.
