The conventional W,A,S, and D setup for movement is one common aspect. Ctrl for crouch and spacebar for Jump is also similar. Although besides that, almost everything is different from other games.

How to have keybinds like Pros in Fortnite

Construction control keys are by far the most important in Fortnite. World Champion Bugha has the following keybinds.

Wall – X, Floor- V, Stairs – C, Roof – L-Shift, Trap – T, Use – E / MW Up. For Crouch – L-Ctrl, Inventory – I, Map – M, Reload / Rotate – R / G, Building Edit – F / MW Down, Confirm Edit on Release – On. 

For Weapons, he keeps it a little different with Harvesting Tool – (num) 1, Weapon Slot 1 – on 2, Weapon Slot 2 – on 3 and so on, up to Weapon Slot 5 – 6.

Similarly, Clix has a unique setup with his keybinds. If one notices carefully, Clix uses his thumb way too often to change several things in-game. For Wall – F, Floor – X, Stairs – Q, Roof – V, Trap – T, Use – E, Crouch – C, Inventory – I, Reload / Rotate – R. This needs a good range with the hand on the left side. Although, with time and practice, it is relatively easy to get used to.

  • There are few pros which encourage players to make their own keybinds. Especially with taking out the weapons, editing builds and reviving players (interacting).
  • The closer one is with their movement button, the quicker they will progress. It becomes a part of muscle memory as movement will be constant in every game.
  • Building keys need to be as close to the WASD keys. 
  • Shorter distance between weapon keys and building keys.
  • Avoid stretching to the thumb’s reach for assigning keys.

In the video, Fruity explains the best ways to make a keybind. At the same time, players need to find a comfortable keybind where hand-stretching is at a minimum. Taking advantage of the mouse’s keys is good too, but sticking to the keyboard is the best option.
