What is keybinds

Keybinds are basically additional input customization that players make to perform a certain action easier or in some cases execute a macro to gain an edge over their opponents. These keybinds can include keyboards & mouse shortcuts or in some cases a combination of both.

In Apex Legends, some crafty players have come up with keybinds that are more optimal than the default setup that Respawn Entertainment gives you while you boot up Apex for the first time.

For example, Apex players are known to bind the mouse scroll wheel up and down with dedicated movement keys like “jump” and “move forward” buttons to perform complex movement mechanics such as bunny hopping and tap strafing respectively.

Bind Jump to scroll wheel up or down

Crouch[Hold] to mouse’s side buttons

Having two different options available to crouch in Apex Legends can be beneficial depending upon the situation. And assigning one of the side buttons that is available on your mouse to perform Crouch[Hold] is optimal to perform bunny hopping as well as crouch spamming to dodge bullets in close-quarter encounters.

This key bind is intended for advanced users as it is quite hard to master for beginners. By binding your w key to the mouse scroll wheel up you can perform tap-strafing which is an advanced movement tech that will help you break your opponents’ ankles in the Apex games.
