[PC] Key bindings gone, "Restore Defaults" leaves some unbound

Started up the game yesterday and all keybindings were gone (no keys bound).

No idea about the repro, has only happened once.

Bigger issue is that if I choose "Restore Defaults" from the key bindings screen not all keys are rebound since not all key bindings are available in the UI.

For example, when waiting in the drop ship to start a match, the bottom of the screen shows: "[UNBOUND] Change Loadout"; there's no way in the UI to bind a key for "Change Loadout", so there's no way to fix this. Another example is that the "1" and "2" keys no longer select primary and secondary weapons.

    I have the exact same issue - started yesterday. Game treated me like a new pilot.
    Resetting defaults and repairing game did not resolve either.
    Even removed non-functioning Logitech Gaming Software's profile for key bindings.

    Same problem here. Happened after a crash though, so I expect that something was not properly saved. Anyway, it is super annoying to not be able to change the loadout or switch weapons with keys 1 or 2. It seems even the console can not be activated. Hopefully support will read this and provide some workaround

    Same problem, accidentally un-bound 1 & 2 keys from primary/secondary weapon select and can't re-bind them.

    I have tried resetting bindings to default as well as repairing the game. Found someone on reddit posting console commands to re-bind these but there seems to be no way to open the console -_-

    Respawn pls fix

    Default weapon switch for PC is "mouse wheel up".
    I shoot stuff, I blow **** up...but mostly I get killed trying.

    I had the same problem... I ended up disabling cloud saves in origin and deleting the Titanfall 2 folder from my Documents\Respawn folder, but on second thoughts, I could probably have deleted just the settings.cfg file from Documents\Respawn\Titanfall 2\local, as that file contains the key bindings. I don't know why it broke/unbound on me... I had played the campaign without issues, and had played the multiplayer for a few weeks, and all of a sudden when starting the game up all the keys were unbound, and I couldn't reset all of them.

    If anyone else has this problem, try editing the Documents\Respawn\Titanfall 2\local\settings.cfg file, and if you just want the default bindings back, replace the top 52 lines that start with 'bind' with the following.
    bind "1" "weaponSelectPrimary0"
    bind "2" "weaponSelectPrimary1"
    bind "a" "+moveleft"
    bind "c" "+ability 6"
    bind "d" "+moveright"
    bind "e" "+use"
    bind "f" "+melee"
    bind "g" "+offhand2"
    bind "q" "+offhand0"
    bind "r" "+reload"
    bind "s" "+back"
    bind "t" "say"
    bind "v" "+ability 1"
    bind "w" "+forward"
    bind "x" "+scriptCommand1"
    bind "y" "say_team"
    bind "z" "+pushtotalk"
    bind "`" "toggleconsole"
    bind "SPACE" "+ability 3"
    bind "TAB" "+showscores"
    bind "ESCAPE" "ingamemenu_activate"
    bind "DEL" "scoreboard_mute"
    bind "HOME" "scoreboard_toggle_focus"
    bind "END" "scoreboard_profile"
    bind "PGUP" "scoreboard_up"
    bind "PGDN" "scoreboard_down"
    bind "PAUSE" "pause"
    bind "LSHIFT" "+speed"
    bind "LCTRL" "+toggle_duck"
    bind "F1" "titan_loadout_select"
    bind "F10" "jpeg"
    bind "MOUSE1" "+attack"
    bind "MOUSE2" "+toggle_zoom"
    bind "MOUSE3" "+offhand1"
    bind "MWHEELUP" "+weaponCycle"
    bind "MWHEELDOWN" "+weaponCycle"
    bind "A_BUTTON" "+ability 3"
    bind "B_BUTTON" "+toggle_duck"
    bind "X_BUTTON" "+useandreload"
    bind "Y_BUTTON" "+ability 7"
    bind "L_SHOULDER" "+offhand1"
    bind "R_SHOULDER" "+offhand0"
    bind "BACK" "+showscores"
    bind "START" "ingamemenu_activate"
    bind "STICK1" "+speed"
    bind "STICK2" "+melee"
    bind "UP" "+scriptcommand1"
    bind "RIGHT" "scoreboard_focus"
    bind "DOWN" "+ability 1"
    bind "LEFT" "+ability 6"
    bind "L_TRIGGER" "+zoom"
    bind "R_TRIGGER" "+attack"
    

    In particular, these are the five key bindings that aren't restored when 'reset to default' is clicked... which explains why the fix Drop_boi wanted to apply couldn't be done as the hotkey to open the console was one that wasn't reset! :frowning:
    bind "1" "weaponSelectPrimary0"
    bind "2" "weaponSelectPrimary1"
    bind "`" "toggleconsole"
    bind "ESCAPE" "ingamemenu_activate"
    bind "PAUSE" "pause"

    Same issue just happened to me, beginning of match I had no keys bound. Restoring defaults worked for me, however, I had to remember the binds that I had in order to play like I did before.

    To fix mine, I closed the game, deleted the settings.cfg file, launched the game, and when it prompted me for local or cloud, I chose local. Relaunched the game. The change loadout was now bound to ESCAPE, and all other defaults were correct. Obviously I had to go in and change anything custom I used, but at least all the keys bind now to true defaults.
  • I had the same problem but i closed the game, deleted settings.cfg file, launch the game and cancel cloud sync
  • I had the same problem but i closed the game, deleted settings.cfg file, launch the game and cancel cloud sync AND i didnt have to change anything at all
