Our Fortnite Best Keybinds guide will walk you through the most popular options for binding your keys on your PC keyboard! One of the most important aspects of gaming at a high level is having the right key assignments. If you are not comfortable with your keys, your muscle memory will not be built and you will make mechanical mistakes. Having the right controls early on is a great way to prepare to level up in Fortnite.
Once you have a good set of keybindings picked out, you will not want to change these! It should be understood that while having easy-to-access controls is an important starting point, changing them frequently is not going to increase your abilities in the game.

You’ll want to play the same set over and over again for many hours to have them down to where you are never thinking about what key you need to press. Pro players have succeeded at the highest level with a variety of different keybindings. So, the specific set isn’t the important part, it’s knowing them by muscle memory!
