There’s a lot to learn in your first few hours of Enshrouded. The last thing you want to do is worry about the controls. In this guide, I’ll go over all Enshrouded controls for keyboard and mouse, as well as all three consoles’ controllers.

Enshrouded Keybinds and Controls Listed and Detailed

Enshrouded allows you to change your keybindings and controller bindings. Conveniently, this survival game also allows you to choose which button prompts come up if you’re playing on PC. If you prefer using a PlayStation, Xbox, or Nintendo Switch Pro controller on PC, you’re in luck with this one. We aren’t stuck with just Xbox button prompts here.

You can also choose between two different button presets on controller for all three controller styles. Click here to jump straight down the the controller bindings if you don’t need the KBM bindings.

That’s it for my guide to all Enshrouded controls for controllers and keyboard and mouse users. The different presets out of the box are nice, and there are a heck of a lot of different controls to remember for KBM. Look for some of our Enshrouded guides here on GameSkinny.
