PC is becoming a more attractive destination to play Call of Duty and the same goes for Vanguard. While the platform has a higher number of hackers, it also features much more customization in the way players experience the game. This comes in the form of graphics settings, which can be used to improve visibility, and individual keybinds for each in-game action.

Keybinds are the best way for players to customize their experience while playing Vanguard. Every action can be bound to a key of the player’s choosing. However, some players opt to use the general community’s opinion on what keybinds are best. Though it comes down to personal preference in the end, Upcomer has compiled a list of the best PC keybinds for Vanguard.

Best PC keybind settings in Vanguard

There are a wide array of keybinds in Vanguard but there is certainly a set that is more vital than the rest. This set is crucial to how players experience gameplay and can have a huge effect on their success in multiplayer. This set of keybinds will be showcased first followed by the other set of keybinds.

  • Move Forward: W
  • Move Backward: S
  • Move Left: A
  • Move Right: D
  • Jump/Stand/Mantle: Space Bar
  • Crouch/Slide: C
  • Prone: Z
  • Sprint/Steady Aim: Shift
  • Fire Weapon: Left Mouse Click
  • Aim Down Sight: Right Mouse Click
  • Previous Weapon: Scroll Down
  • Next Weapon: Scroll Up
  • Switch to First Weapon: 1
  • Switch to Secondary Weapon: 2
  • Lethal: G
  • Tactical: Q
  • Field Upgrade: X
  • Reload: R
  • Use: E
  • Weapon Mount: Mouse Button 5 + F
  • Alternate Fire: B
  • Detonate Satchel Charge: Middle Mouse Button

The most important keybind to change from the list of default options is the Prone key. It is originally set to L-CTRL, which isn’t the best option when it comes to gameplay. Instead, Prone should be set to Z. L-CTRL might be second-nature for some experienced PC players but it’s harder to reach than Z, making it a less attractive choice.

Also, players can switch the E and F keys depending on what they’re more comfortable with.
