Cyberpunk 2077 – Keybinds Locked, How To Change?

Last Updated on December 4, 2022

Cyberpunk 2077 is a title that needs no introduction, everyone in the gaming world knows about this title from CD Projekt Red. The main reason why everyone has high hopes from this game is the game is built by the same studios behind the Witcher 3. The game has been in the works since 2012, there have been numerous delays, the release date has been pushed a bunch of times already. However, the day has come, the game is finally released.

Now that the game is here, many users are disappointed that the keybindings in the game are locked. In this article, we will find out how to take care of the issue.

Cyberpunk 2077 – Keybinds Locked, How To Change?

Since there’s no option to edit the controls in the in-game UI, we’ll have to edit the game files to fix this:

How To Rebind move forward to Arrow up?

This is where the config is located:

C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Local\CD Projekt Red\Cyberpunk 2077\UserSettings.json

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Cyberpunk 2077\r6\config\inputUserMappings.xml

Change the value “IK_W” to “IK_Up”

“name”: “forward”,
“type”: “name”,
“value”: “IK_W”,
“default_value”: “IK_W”

change the value “IK_S” to “IK_Down”

“name”: “back”,
“type”: “name”,
“value”: “IK_S”,
“default_value”: “IK_S”

Similarly, you can make other changes accordingly; we will add more controls later.

The main problem with the locked keybindings is that it focuses on right-hand side usage. We hope the guide helped you out.
