This is a list of all of the Basic Controls in Phantom Forces, as of the Demo Release (5th November 2015). As this is based off of the Demo Release, all Controls are subject to change at any point. Below listed are only mainly the PC/MAC Keyboard and Mouse controls for Phantom Forces. None of the controls can be rebound in game. To rebind them to your preference, some gaming keyboards and mice have software (Examples: Razer, Corsair, Logitech G, Roccat, Steelseries, etc). Some of the software can allow macros which is not illegal in Phantom Forces to use.
