At the end of the day you have to feel comfortable with the rebinds. Find the best rebinds that suit you and make them work for you. Remember when it comes to key binding it is really just a personal preference.

Building Key Binding Options Tips

So we all want to build quickly under pressure. This is key to your success and with out a doubt essential. Like most people have found, the binding of the function keys for building, which is the default config, is just not right for speed. Instead, there are better bindings that can be used. So, rebind the most commonly-used ones to keys that are far closer to you for speed.


For Keyboard Keybindings

  • Building option 1 (wall): Q or E
  • Building option 2 (platforms): F or V
  • Building option 3 (ramp): F or V


But if this does not suit you, try this setup for building options instead:

  • Z for Building Slot 1 (Wall)
  • X for Building Slot 2 (Platform)
  • C for Building Slot 3 (Ramp)


You could also use the these ones as well,

  • Rotate building: R
  • Repair / Upgrade: F
  • Select Building Type: V
  • Building edit: G


You can also try using the mouse buttons for the building options, this will allow super fast building.

For Mouse Keybindings

  • Building Slot 1 (Wall) – Thumb Mouse Button 4
  • Building Slot 2 (Floor) – Scroll Side Click Left
    (Certain mice will have this)
  • Building Slot 3 (Ramp) – Thumb Mouse Button 3
  • Building Slot 4 (Roof) – Scroll Side Click Right
