Note that these controls apply to an English US QWERTY keyboard. Controls may vary from keyboard to keyboard.
The following keys allow you to control how your tank moves.
→ keys let you move, up, left, down, and right respectively. They can be used interchangeably.
The Mouse and Trackpad allow you to control the tank’s “target”.
Left-Click allows you to target the pointer with Ammo.
Right-Click allows you to either control the tank’s scope, firing front Cannon as the Falcon or Eagle, or reverse the targeting of Drones.
- Space Bar and Shift keys can also be used for Left-Click and Right-Click, respectively.
R keys toggle Override function, which disables AI targeting for automatic weapons (Drones, including Director branch, Battleship’s “autonomous” Swarm Drones and Swarmer and Beekeeper’s Hive Drones, Auto Turrets, including auto-turreted tanks, Engineer’s Traps#Pillbox turrets and Overdrive’s Auto Drone Turrets). It also disables Spike’s bounce ability.
V key reverses your tank’s front direction, causing it to face away from the cursor. The
B key reverses your mouse’s click buttons, making
Right-Click for primary attack and
Left-Click for secondary attack. Space Bar and Shift keys are also swapped on functionality.
Stats can be upgraded either by clicking their respective
number button in the upgrade table or by using the
numerical keys in different parts of the keyboard.
The Stats’ numeric IDs are in order
1 - 0 : Body Damage, Max Health,, Bullet Speed, Bullet Health, Bullet Penetration, Bullet Damage, Reload, Movement Speed, Shield Regeneration and Shield Capacity respectively.
The press of
M + number will maximize the stat, or use all points if there's not enough points to maximize stats.
Upon reaching a tank upgrade choice, you can click on the upgrade of your choice to change into that class, or click “Don't upgrade” to remain indefinitely as your class.
K keys can also be used as hotkeys to upgrade into respective class choices. Upgrades 7, 8 and 9 have no set keys by default.

- Show Upgrade Tree:
- Holding the key will display the upgrade tree further, overlapping the screen.
- If desired, you can screenshot or record your screen by pressing
Zkeys, respectively. To stop recording, press Z again. Both functionalities will have the resulting image/video downloaded, so it’s preferable to have “Ask where to save each file before downloading” on Google Chrome or other similar options in other browsers disabled to avoid interruption.
