Binding KeysEdit

Urban Terror has default keys assigned when you install the game. These keys can be reassigned from the user interface by clicking on SetupControls or by modifying your config file. Alternatively, if you are in game and wish to change controls, simply hit the ⎋ Esc key and click the Controls option that appears.

Another method, for advanced users, is to pull down the Console and type in the command at the console prompt. For example, type /bind <x> "<command>" (<x> being any key you choose, and <command> being any command you choose).
