  6. Finally, just hit the bound key until you find the clbutt you want to play while in the match

On Xbox

The Xbox already has a default key to change clbutt in Team Fortress 2, which is the back arrow. However, you can bind another key if necessary. To do it, follow the same steps used on the Playstation tutorial.


Now you are all set and ready to play with whichever character you prefer, any time you want. Check out how you and your friends can play Team Fortress 2 together, even if using different platforms.
