HTC Vive:

Pick up gun: put a hand on the gun's handle and pull the trigger, at this point, it is safe to let go because the gun is attached to your hand.

Drop the gun: While the gun is in your hand press the small button above the trackpad.

To fire: Pull the trigger of the hand gripping the handle of the gun, with assault rifles, SMGs, and the m249 LMG firing with one hand will increase recoil and make the gun fire in an upward fashion. Firing the AWP, hunting rifle and Kar98k with one hand will make you let go of it and the gun will be launched to the ground behind you.

To steady the gun: reach your free hand towards the muzzle of the gun and press the grip buttons, this will decrease recoil and allow you to keep hold of your sniper rifles.

To buy equipment: before the round starts, press the right quadrant on the touchpad, this will open the buy menu. To navigate through the menu use the touchpad.

To drop magazine: press the bottom quadrant of the touchpad holding the handle of the gun.

To reload: reach your non-dominant hand to your hip and pull the trigger, this will make a magazine appear in your hand. Bring your hand up to the magazine port and the magazine will snap into the gun.

To cock the gun: on SMGs, the m249, and assault rifles after loading for the first time pull the bolt back and release with non-dominate hand. For pistols pull slide and release. After the first time for rifles if there is still a bullet in the chamber press the upper quadrant of the trackpad and there is no need to pull the bolt back.

To talk: currently there is no push to talk option and the microphone is always on, when just talking normally your voice can be heard by both teams within twenty feet from you. To talk to team mates further away reach a free hand up to a shoulder and pull the trigger, when you hear static, your radio is on and you can start talking.

To holster primary/pistol/knife/jades/bomb: move your hand to one of the circles on your chest and press the grip button. For the primary point the barrel towards the ground. Simu Els Son Youtube Tutorial


  • This game is still in beta so the controls may change, if they are wrong please change so as not to cause confusion.*

Oculus Rift:

Pick up gun: Reach out to the gun, wait for it to glow, and grab it by pulling the grip button with your index finger.

Drop the gun: Let go of the grip button. You may need to reach out in order for the gun not to snap onto your body.

To fire: Pull the trigger of the hand gripping the handle of the gun, with assault rifles, SMGs, and the m249 LMG firing with one hand will increase recoil and make the gun fire in an upward fashion. Firing the AWP, hunting rifle and Kar98k with one hand will make you let go of it and the gun will be launched to the ground behind you.*

To steady the gun: Reach your free hand towards the muzzle of the gun and press the grip button of your free hand, this will decrease recoil and allow you to keep hold of your sniper rifles.*

To buy equipment: Click your main hand's joystick. Push your stick outward and turn it around until you hit the desired category of weapon. To enter a category, turn the joystick in it's direction and click the joystick in again. To exit the menu completely, click the middle joystick without moving it.

Windows Mixed Reality (Default):

There are a few things you need to know and a few settings you should change before playing. Let's start with the controls that are available on your controllers.

Grip - It's the button on the side of your controller, one that you press with your middle finger.

Trigger - It is on the back of your controller, you press it with your index finger.

Menu button - This is NOT the one with the windows logo on it! It's the very small button between your joystick and trackpad.

Now that you know the controls available, let's change a few settings. First off, you need to access the Main menu. To do so, you need to hold down the menu button and then press the trigger on your left hand. The menu will appear to hover above your left arm. Select items with the trigger of your right hand. Visually an important setting that you need to change is how the hands are mapped. On WMR controllers, by default the hands are mapped the wrong way around. Enter the main menu and select settings, then toggle the auto-swap option. The other options discussed further are optional. Since you're using WMR, it's likely your cables are too short to do 360 rotations (unless you bought extensions), so I would suggest going to the last tab in the options menu and map one of the inputs to RotationReset. This maps your snap turning to the left or right menu button (right preferred as your left one is used for menu and scoreboard access). Also, by default the movement is based on the direction of your left controller. At the time of this wiki entry, if you lift your left hand while walking forwards, you will start walking backwards, so toggling Head Locomotion on the input tab is suggested to avoid this.

And now the gun mechanics:

Pick up gun: Reach out to the gun, wait for it to glow, and grab it by pulling the grip button with your middle finger.

Drop the gun: Press the grip button. If you want to stick it to your body, hold the controller close to your left or right side, whichever is free and press the grip button. You can also put it on your back, but do it quick so the controller doesn't lose tracking (Works 99.9% of the time, at least for me).

To fire: Pull the trigger (index finger) of the hand gripping the handle of the gun, with assault rifles, SMGs, and the m249 LMG firing with one hand will increase recoil and make the gun fire in an upward fashion. Firing the AWP, hunting rifle and Kar98k with one hand will make you let go of it and the gun will be launched to the ground behind you.*

To steady the gun: Reach your free hand towards the muzzle of the gun and press the grip button of your free hand, this will decrease recoil and allow you to keep hold of your sniper rifles.

To buy equipment: Push the right side of your right trackpad will open the buy menu. Touching the trackpad you can select the wanted category, and when it's highlighted just press down on the trackpad (make sure your finger stays in the same position, otherwise you may end up clicking on the wrong thing). To exit the menu completely, click in the middle of the trackpad.

To drop magazine: Press on the bottom of your right trackpad, this acts as a mag release bolt. (On AK you need to actually grip the magazine, you can't just drop it out of the weapon)

To reload: Reach your free hand to either one of your hips and pull the trigger. Bring your magazine/clip to the port of your gun, and it will snap into place.

To cock the gun: on SMGs, the m249, and assault rifles after loading for the first time pull the bolt back and release with non-dominate hand (using trigger button). For pistols pull slide and release. After the first time for rifles if there is still a bullet in the chamber there is no need to pull the bolt back.

To talk: currently there is no push to talk option and the microphone is always on, when just talking normally your voice can be heard by both teams within twenty feet from you. To talk to team mates further away reach a free hand up to a shoulder and pull the trigger, when you hear static, your radio is on and you can start talking.

By default, you can only use your left trackpad for movement. If you want to use the joysticks, opt into SteamVR beta, where you can remap your controllers. There are already mappings shared on controller binding menu, so just use them and edit as suitable. Also, at the time of this entry the controller binding menu only works by accessing http://127.0.0.1:8998/dashboard/controllerbinding.html, you need to have SteamVR running with both controllers connected for it to load properly.
