The controls for Remnant 2 on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox aren’t all that different from those of the previous game or other Souls-likes. But because the Root can be so devastating — and considering you can’t pause the game to save yourself from its onslaught — having a list of the game’s inputs handy can be a good idea. Whether you’ve skipped through tutorials or just blanked on what a certain button or button combo does, here are the keybindings by platform.

Can I Remap Controls and Keybinds in Remnant 2?

You can’t rebind controller inputs in Remnant 2 (sorry, PlayStation and Xbox players). However, you can remap mouse and keyboard keybindings just as you would in most other games on PC, since the platform gives you many more options over its console counterparts.

  • To remap or rebind inputs for mouse and keyboard on PC, pause the game. Then go to System, then Options. From there, tab to the right to Controls. Highlight an input, click it, and press the new keybind you want to assign. Remember that this can remove inputs from other actions, so be sure to double-check.

Those are all of the PC, PlayStation, and Xbox controls in Remnant 2. For more, head over to our guides hub, which has plenty of tips and tricks to help you defeat The Root, including how to unlock the super secret Engineer Archetype and other hidden classes.
