Rust - How to bind keys

Recommended Posts

How to keybind functions in Rust

  1. Press F1 to open game console
  2. Ensure console tab is selected at the upper-left hand corner.
  3. Use the following structure and change accordingly to your needs:
    bind <key> <function> <value>
    bind k chat.say test

    Do note that not all binds require values unless the function requires it:

    bind c duck

How to bind multiple functions to a single key

  1. Using the method above, simply add a semi-colon at the end of each string:
    bind z attack;duck
    The above bind will execute both attack and duck at the same time when the key is pressed. This bind, in particular, is used to auto harvest nodes.

How to bind multiple binds at once

It's a good practice to always save your binds in the event they're reset by an update. This method allows you to bind all of your commands at once without having to do them one-by-one.

  1. Using the same method as above, simply add a semi-colon after every string:
    bind c duck;bind z attack;bind r reload;bind p run;bind z attack;duck

    There is no limit to how many binds you can execute at once just be sure to be careful with binds that require multiple values.

Useful Binds

bind q forward;sprint
bind z attack;duck
bind z +attack;+duck
bind c duck
