Today we're specifically diving into the best keyboard settings in Fortnite, so if you feel like your keyboard settings could use some tweaking stick around to learn more!

The most important part of keyboard settings in Fortnite is Fortnite keybinds. Getting the best Fortnite keybinds will put you leagues ahead of the average player because you'll be better suited to take on enemies with refined controls.

Best Fortnite Movement Keybinds

Amongs the best keyboard and mouse players like Bugha and Chap there is a widely recognized best movement keybinds. Therefore, you should make sure you match these movement keybinds.

Now that you know the best movement keybinds we can move into some more categories that are less agreed upon amongst the Best Fortnite Players.

Best Fortnite Combat Keybinds

Combat keybinds are less agreed upon. However, we've studied several pro players and found some similarities amongst the best. Therefore, you can rest assured that we have the best combat keybinds for you!

Here are the best combat keybinds in Fortnite:

Left Mouse Button


Right Mouse Button




E / Mouse Wheel up

Harvesting Tool


Weapon Slot 1


Weapon Slot 2


Weapon Slot 3


Weapon Slot 4


Weapon Slot 5


One common mistake some players run into is changing their left and right mouse button. For example, we've seen players with a right mouse button reload, which is a far inferior layout than running a right mouse button target setup.

We love settings the harvesting tool on 1 and having your item slots bound from 2 - 6. However, some players find it hard to reach the furthest buttons like 5 or 6. If you have this problem binding your harvesting tool to an easily accessible button like Q is a method that might work well for you!

Of course, keyboard settings will only get you so far. If you really want to play at the top level of Fortnite Battle Royale you'll have to practice. To practice, we recommend checking out some 1v1 Arenas and Best Practice Courses.

Best Fortnite Building Keybinds

The final set of keybindings to check out are building keybinds. Building skills are the most difficult to hone because it's such a unique mechanic in gaming. Thankfully, depending on your settings, you'll be a builder pro in no time!

Here are the best Fortnite building keybinds:

An important tip for building is to bind some settings to your mouse. For example, you can set mouse button building edit, which allows you to split up inputs between hands.

There's only so much one of your hands can pull off in the heat of a build battle, so splitting inputs between keyboard and mouse allows for a more balanced division of inputs during your fights.

Another place you can see our division between keyboard and mouse is with the building structure keybinds. If you have side mouse buttons be sure to bind a couple of your structures to the mouse so you can more easily build the Best Structures in a build battle.

To continue on your keyboard and mouse building skills we recommend checking out Fortnite Building Tips.

Now that you've got the best keybinds you can move on to some more in-game tips. For example, you can check out the Best Ways To Win or Tips To Get Better.
