Battlefield 2042 Controls for PC, PlayStation, Xbox

Battlefield 2042 has an action-packed multiplayer mode with lobbies of up to 128 players, leaving you no time to remember controls amidst all the chaos. Memorizing the controls of your specific platform can greatly increase your in-game efficiency and allow you to focus on other aspects of the game rather than finding the correct hotkey for your grenade. This is more important as cross-play support is enabled.

This new game BF2042 also gives players complete freedom when it comes to customizing their controls and feeling comfortable while playing the first-person shooter. Anyhow, the default controls are just as good, needing only minor tweaks to sync with your comfort. Apart from these, you should also check our graphics settings guide and a list of known issues with the game.
