If you want to play Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl with a keyboard, in this guide, I will show you the best Keyboard binds for the game. Sadly as of now, there is no option to change movement to WASD. I hope they patch it in the future that’d allow players to bind everything, including movement. Having similar binds to this would be nice. Check out the full guide below.
Best Keyboard Controls/Binds For Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl
Keyboard Viability/Use For This Game
You must have realized that a good 99% of the community prefers using a controller instead of a keyboard which is nothing new for fighting games. But there is reason to believe this game is actually extremely keyboard-friendly!
First of all this game uses Digital input, meaning you won’t lose any possible angles by going with the keyboard. Also, most hand movements in this game, feel rather natural on the keyboard. But this obviously depends on your binds. So due to these, I would say for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, the choice between Keyboard and Controller really is a matter of personal preference.
How to change the keyboard binds?
In the options section as you will see there are no options for changing keybinds. You have to go to the character select screen and press C to rebind your keys. On that screen, you can rebind anything you want! Except for movement keys. For some reason, movement keys are locked to arrows. Also, menu navigation is always on Z, X, C but I assume that that shouldn’t be a problem for you.
When you open the rebind section you can scroll down(↓) and see all the actions with a bind next to them. Those are the default binds. When you hover over them, you can press any button on your keyboard (except arrow keys of course) and it will bind that action to that button! Pretty neat right? But wait! There is more!
I am not sure if this is a bug or not, but the game seems to remember everything you bound to an action, even after you change it. And keeps it until you bind another action to that specific button. Meaning, even though the keybinds section is only capable of showing 1 bind per action, you can actually bind as many buttons to action as you want! Want the entirety of your Numpad to make you jump? You can do that! Though it may not be too fruitful you can.
I really hope even if this is some sort of a bug, they won’t ever “fix” it and if possible go the opposite way and let us see all the buttons we have bound to every action without going into game files. There would be no need to open the controls.json file with a text editor.
Also after you bind them, if you ever open the rebind section again and go over the binds by pressing ↓ without changing them, you might see them change back to their default state. Don’t worry, this seems to be only a visual bug. You can just press confirm to close it, even though the buttons that are being shown in the binds are not yours. When you get in the game, you will still have your layout.
Best Keyboard Binds
- Attack – A
- Strong – S
- Special – D
- Jump – Space
- Airdash/Defend – Q, W, E, Left Shift, Right Shift
- Grab – F, num0
- Strafe – Left Ctrl, Right Ctrl
- Taunt – R, T, Num1
Do these keybinds actually work?
Except for the Numpad buttons, definitely yeah. I don’t recollect pressing the Numpad ones even once. I only put actions to Numpad 0 and 1 because when I play a game with arrow keys, they become easily accessible with the pinky finger, especially the num0 button. Will they ever come in handy? Of that, I have much doubt. But you can go for it anyway considering how I went overboard with my Airdash/Defend binds.
