    GunZ Basic Controls and Keybinds

    GunZ is a unique game, but it has a relatively simple control structure for beginners. It should not take you long to get a handle on the basic controls of the game, but you should definitely read on as players have gained information on how to make the controls work better than intended.

    My name is Hymnosi, and this is the gunz.gg guide to basic controls.

    Thanks to those who came before me and continue to carry the torch of the game.



    First, lets go over what gunz controls there are, in full, and their default key:


    • Walk Foward (W) - Moves your character forward.
    • Walk Backward (S) - Moves your character backwards.
    • Strafe Left (A) - Strafes your character left.
    • Strafe Right (D) - Strafes your character right.
    • Jump (Space) - Makes your character jump.
    • Attack (Left Mouse Button) - Makes your character attack with the current weapon.
    • Special Attack (Right Mouse Button) - Performs a special move based on the weapon you have equipped.
    • Reload (R) - Reloads your equipped weapon if it is a ranged weapon.
    • Block (Shift) - Makes your character block if you have a melee weapon equipped that can block.
    • Switch to Melee (1) - Switches your active weapon to melee.
    • Switch to Weapon 1 (2) - Switches your active weapon to Weapon 1.
    • Switch to Weapon 2 (3) - Switches your active weapon to Weapon 2.
    • Switch to Item 1 (4) - Switches your active weapon to Item 1.
    • Switch to Item 2 (5) - Switches your active weapon to Item 2.


    Next, lets go over the basic special moves and their inputs:


    • Dash - Tapping W, A, S, or D twice rapidly while a melee weapon is equipped will let you perform a dash. A dash will move you at the game's maximum speed for a short distance, and can be chained repeatedly.
    • Tumble - Tapping W, A, S, or D twice rapidly while a ranged weapon or item is equipped will let you perform a tumble. A tumble will move you at the game's maximum speed for a long distance, and can be chained repeatedly.
    • Melee Chain Attack - Tapping attack with a melee weapon equipped on the ground will perform a melee chain attack. With Swords and Kodachis, you can attack 4 times. Daggers can only attack once, but can continually do so repeatedly.
    • Wall Climb - Tapping jump at the base of a wall while facing the wall will let you perform a wall climb. A wall climb will move you at a moderate pace straight up a wall. These can not be chained repeatedly.
    • Wall Run - Tapping jump at the base of a wall while moving at a 45 degree angle towards the wall will let you perform a wall run. A wall run will move you at a moderate pace along a wall. These can not be chained repeatedly.
    • Wall Jump - Tapping jump in the air while next to a wall will let you perform a wall jump. A wall jump acts similarly to a normal jump, except it pushes you away from the wall at a 45 degree angle. These can be chained repeatedly as long as another wall is near by that you can bounce to.
    • Wall Cling - Holding special attack with a melee weapon in the air will let you perform a wall cling. A wall cling lets you attach to a wall until you release special attack.


    Finally, lets talk about different keybind setups and their advantages and disadvantages. For brevity, I'm only going to write out changes from default. If you get lost, click the default button in the options menu to reset everything.

    Default
    Default keybinds is what is listed above. It is very keyboard heavy which may hinder your ability to do more advanced moves later. Additionally if you have a bad keyboard, some moves may become impossible because of it. If you prefer keyboard heavy layouts, this may be your best bet.

    Mini Default
    Mini default keybinds modifies the default keybinds to make you have less travel on your keyboard hand. Just like default, if you have a bad keyboard, this may not work well for you.
    • Q - Melee Weapon
    • E - Ranged Weapon 1
    • F - Ranged Weapon 2
    • Z - Item 1
    • C - Item 2


    Block/Special Attack Swap
    This is not a specific keybind, but many players choose to swap block (shift) with special attack (right mouse button). The reasoning behind this is that certain advanced moves require very, very fast blocking, and mouse buttons have the fastest activation and deactivation time possible. On the opposite side, special attack is rarely used in a rapid manner.
