Twitch star Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar has been playing a ton of Escape from Tarkov lately and has given his fans some incredibly useful tips, with his very own keybinds.

Escape from Tarkov is a tactical first-person shooter that’s blown up recently, with countless Twitch streamers enjoying the game since late 2019.


It’s a challenging game though, where even one wrong move can see you instantly lose all of your items and, as such, having the right keybinds can be the difference between a good or terrible session. Therefore, Jaryd decided to help his viewers out by showing them the ideal keybind setup.

Escape from Tarkov is a tough, tactical first-person shooter, where the details matter.

During his usual Tarkov stream on February 6, he decided to respond to a commonly asked question about his settings.


“If you’re having a hard time with keybindings I recommend trying these,” Summit began, before diving right into his settings.

“First thing, lean right, lean left, [make them] B and V. Switch scopes and change scope magnification, [make them] E and Q, you can have them either way… [but] it does make it so much easier. The default keybind for them is Alt+something – you’re not gonna be scoped in on a spot and click Alt+something to unscope.”


Summit then moved onto even more buttons, many of which are just as important.

“Shift+Mouse5 to check my magazine, X to change the fire mode, Z to go prone, C to sprint, Left Control to duck, and walk is Left Shift with continuous, so you hold [it] to walk.”

All of the keybindings he listed are different by default and with so many different possible actions in the game, some of them are moved to very difficult positions.


To check your magazine, for example, you would need to press T+Left Shift with the default settings – imagine trying to do that in the middle of a firefight when your enemy is closing in on you.

Of course, you don’t have to set your settings exactly like Summit’s, but he has highlighted a great tip for Escape from Tarkov players, taking the time to change your keybindings will make a huge difference in your gameplay.

There doesn’t appear to be a fix for the notorious speed glitch which has reared its head again in EFT though, as players noted back at the end of July.


The devs did manage to fix this exploit when players are moving forwards, however it still seems to work if the player is moving backward instead.

Patch 12.8 is expected to come this month, in August, at least according to the most recent information from Battlestate. What exactly it will contain is not known though.

Patch 12.9, expected in September, is set to bring  Chest Rig and Plate Carriers customization, before the new Streets of Tarkov map is added in 13.0, expected in October.
