Best Fortnite Keybinds

The best Fortnite keybinds, does it really exist? We hope to shed some light on it in this guide. Recently many of the top professional Fortnite players like Myth, Tfue, and SypherPK announced on stream and YouTube that they had changed their Fortnite keybinds. They did this to keep up to par with the growing crowd of competitive Fortnite players who want to become the next big thing. Building is such an important aspect of Fortnite Battle Royale, so it would be silly not to look into your keybinds to see if there is room for improvement. In this guide, we will take a look at what keybinds works best for fast and efficient building strategies and edits, based on what pro players who are considered some of the best builders are using. Now we are not saying that these players are the definitive the best builders, but they are chosen because there is a consensus in the competitive community that these players indeed have some very good building skills. This guide will be focused on PC players, but if we get a lot of requests we might write an article for Xbox and PlayStation as well.

Best Fortnite Keybinds

The guide is organized in a way that we will go through one player at a time and explain their keybinds. If you are already planning to change your keybinds after a good amount of time, please bear in mind that it requires a good amount of patience. In the beginning, your muscle memory will not have adopted yet, and you will make many mistakes when you get into action and the battle gets going. Even pro players like Tfue looked somewhat like a noob right after he changed his keybinds – your brain needs time and practice to adjust properly, and this doesn’t just happen over 10 minutes. If you are making drastic changes, you should probably expect up to a week with consistent gaming before you are completely comfortable with your new keybindings. When that is said, let’s get into looking at the some of the best Fortnite builders, please note they are not in any specific order.

Some advice related to Fortnite keybinds

As you can see, it varies a lot what pro players use for their keybinds. Some are really successful with the default keybinds, while others have done a good amount research to find some optimized keybinds for themselves. What is best will also vary from person to person. I could imagine that people with relatively small hands, would find it difficult to use the default keybindings. What we would recommend, is that you find some keybinds that you find comfortable with and that are not too far away on the keyboard. “But my keybinds are already comfortable” – it might be, they might be the best for you, but I would still consider to give them a check if you are serious about gaming and improving in Fortnite.
