Keyboard commands

Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but I couldn’t find it, if so.

Is there a keyboard command for firing the weapon while in a fight?

As a new player, and an inexperienced video game player, the time it takes me to locate and click on the firing button in the toolbar has been deadly.

If I remember correctly 1 - deck gun, 2 - forward gun and 3 - aft gun. I’m not sure about the 3 as it is a long time since I bothered getting an aft gun as the avid suppressor is too useful for me.

Awesome, thank you.

You should be able to see the keyboard commands when hovering your mouse over the toolbar icons!

As said, the three gun slots are mapped to 1, 2, and 3. The other number keys can be used for the combat items like Blue Scintillack or Flares - they can be rearranged on the Hold tab of the Gazetteer, below the ship diagram.

Thanks, everyone! I should have asked earlier. Looking forward to trying this out when I’m off work this weekend.

I learned something as well. I didn’t know that you could rearrange Combat items, very useful. I just moved my Blue Scintillack closer to the guns.
