The Best Fortnite Keybinds For Success

by John Cooper

If you’re new to Fortnite, then you’re probably getting a few kills here and there, but you’ll find yourself at a loss when someone suddenly creates a barrier out of thin air. While some of the skill in Fortnite comes from your ability to shoot, a lot more of it comes from mastering the game’s systems: namely the building. 

To be truly great at Fortnite, you need to learn how to build, and you need to be able to do it quickly. The thing is, one of the things that is holding you back isn’t your fault, but you can easily remedy it. Changing up your keybinds can save you valuable time and vastly improve your game. That’s why we’ve decided to list some of the best Fortnite keybinds. 

Best Fortnite Keybinds

Before we jump into some of the professional player’s choices, it’s a good idea to go over a few essential points. First of all, turn on the Always Run option, then you can use your Left Shift key for something else. Next, consider removing the weapon scrolling from your mouse wheel. If you slip up at all mid-firefight, the last thing you need to be doing is equipping a Chug Jug instead of a Shotgun. Finally, make sure you take time to practice with these options, they’re going to feel strange at first because you aren’t used to them. 

If there are action missing from the list, it’s because the player uses the default for that key for that action. 


If you’re big on Fortnite, then you probably know who Tfue is already. If not, then you just need to know he is one of the best Fortnite players in the world.
