PC Keybinding Tips 

Here is the guide on how to rebind your keys and which controls you should use for this.

How to rebind

  • At the main menu click three strips in the right corner.
  • Choose cog and then click Input Tab.
  • Now select the keys you want to rebind by clicking on them.

Fortnite Rebind Tips 

To build quickly under pressure is really necessary. I am not a big fan of all the default building keys bound with function keys. Rebind the keys mostly used that are near to your fingers.

For walls, ramps, and flat platforms

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

You can also use this one as well

  • Building option 1 (wall): Z
  • Building option 2 (platforms): X
  • Building option 3 (ramp): C

building options to your mouse side buttons

  • Building option 1 (wall): Thumb Mouse Button 4
  • Building option 2 (platforms): Thumb Mouse Button 2 or another key of your choosing.
  • Building option 3 (ramp): Thumb Mouse Button 3


As you can see, the way professional players use their keys varies a lot. Some are really successful with the default keys, while others have done a lot of research to find optimized keys. The best will also vary from person to person. I imagine that people with relatively small hands will have trouble using the default keyboard shortcuts. What we recommend is that you find links with which you are comfortable and that you are not too far on the keyboard. “But my keys are already comfortable” – maybe it’s the best for you, but I’d still like to give them some control if you’re serious about playing and improving at Fortnite.
