While the default keybinds for Rust have no major issue with them, some competitive players like to have a custom set of keybinds that cater to their needs. For this reason, players like to mess around with the default keybindings to figure out which ones suit them the most and provide them with the most competitive edge. If you also want to mess around with the keybinds and perform some tests, you will need to unbind keys after testing them out. Here is a complete step-by-step guide on how to unbind a key in Rust.
To unbind a specific key from the in-game settings menu, refer to the following steps.
- Step1: Launch the game either by double-clicking on the launch icon on the desktop or clicking on the “Play Game” option on steam.
- Step2: Click on “OPTIONS” to enter the in-game settings.
- Step3: Click on “CONTROLS” to open the controls settings.
- Step4: Scroll down and find the function you want to unbind the key for, and simply set another key for that function.
To unbind a specific key using the in-game console, refer to the following steps.
- Step1: Make sure the game is running. You can do this while in the main menu of the game or while connected to a server.
- Step2: Press the “F1” key to open the in-game console.
- Step3: Type (“bind (key) “ “) in the console. For example, let’s say you want to unbind the “M” key. Simply type: bind M “ “, and then press enter.
