Keybindings[edit | edit source]

Keybindings.jpg

Keybindings let you set hotkeys for controls and Admin Commands.

  • Collumn 1: Specified key or keys, seperated by -.
  • Collumn 2: Targeted action or command.

Insert is permanently bound to the development console and cannot be used for other commands.[18]

Improved Quality of Life commands[edit | edit source]

Improved Quality of Life commands.jpg

Improved Quality of Life commands are messages in the top right corner of the screen, which flash every once in a while. They may be used as reminders for certain tasks.[19]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The chat scrolls all the way back when you respawn. It works normally when you manually scroll it.

Issues[edit | edit source]

  • When getting up from a chair while in Vanity Camera mode, the camera angle will be stuck in free look and your character will be stuck on permanent Strafe.[20]
  • When in the UI, hitting ESC Escape makes you unable to move, nor does the Menu show.
Workaround: restarting the game.[21]
