Controls for Keyboard and Mouse

Mouse and Keyboard controls for the PC version of BATTLETECH are as follows:





WASD  Move camera.


Q/E  Rotate camera.


Right-click + drag  Freely tumble camera.



Scroll wheel  Zoom in/out.


Middle-click  Auto-pan camera to selected spot on map.


Left-click  Select destination, attack a ’Mech, or confirm action.


Right-click  View details for any friendly or enemy unit in the targeting computer.


TAB  Switch between available ’Mechs, or when in firing mode, switch between available enemy targets.


1 – 9  Select movement mode or pilot ability.


Minus  Brace (End turn.) Note that the UI incorrectly displays this hotkey as “s”.


Portrait  click           Single-click to “find” your ‘Mech if it’s offscreen. Double-click to center camera on selected ‘Mech.


T  Cycle through available Melee targets, when Moving (or DFA targets, when Jumping.)


ESC  “Back up” to previous mode or selection. In general, ESC backs out of everything. If you select a unit, then change your mind and want to Reserve it, ESC will de-select it (unless you’ve already taken an action with it). If you’re in firing mode and don’t want to be, ESC will exit. If you don’t have a unit selected, ESC will bring up the exit game popup. Note that this will be replaced by an in-game menu for launch.
