Overwatch 2 controls guide

The full Overwatch 2 controls for PC, PS4/PS5, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.

If you want to zip around as Tracer or tank shots as Roadhog, you should first learn the Overwatch 2 controls. Not much has changed from the original game besides the addition of a ping function, but the free-to-play launch welcomes a large number of new players who are learning the ropes. If that’s you or you’re returning from an extended break, check the Switch, Xbox, PC, Xbox, and PS4/PS5 controls for Overwatch 2 below.

The Overwatch 2 PC controls are pretty standard fare if you’ve played many other shooters with abilities. If you're returning to the game, make sure you know how to ping in Overwatch 2. Head to the game’s options and you can remap all the controls and also choose to make use of a Toggle Crouch option if you prefer.
