In this guide for Cyberpunk 2077, we will show you how to change or reset Key Bindings. The game for some reason does not allow to remap keys.

For the time being, we have a workaround you can try, to Bind/map the Keys. Read on…

Here is the Keybinds for Directional buttons:

“name”: “forward”,
“type”: “name”,
“value”: “IK_Up”,
“default_value”: “IK_W”
“name”: “back”,
“type”: “name”,
“value”: “IK_Down”,
“default_value”: “IK_S”
“name”: “left”,
“type”: “name”,
“value”: “IK_Left”,
“default_value”: “IK_A”
“name”: “right”,
“type”: “name”,
“value”: “IK_Right”,
“default_value”: “IK_D”

To bind/change the “F” Key do the following

  • Go to cyberpunk folder > 2077 > r6 > open config

  • Press Ctrl+F, then press replace
  • Use Replace every instance of “IK_F” (WITH QUOTES) to “IK_G”(or the “use” key of your choice)
  • Save and launch

If you did things correctly, you would be able to use your assigned keys inside the game. Make sure to take a backup of the file. In case of any issues, restore the file to its original. Until CDPR fixes this issue, this short guide should be enough to help you out!
