Escape From Tarkov has an extensive key assignment, sometimes with absurd combinations. That’s why we’re listing them all here in a nutshell!

This is why Tarkov has so many keys: Escape From Tarkov is a tactical shooter that is completely based on realism. This is not only noticeable in the detailed game design but above all in the opportunities given to the players to express themselves, to adopt a position, or to carry out tactics.

With this claim, Battlestate Games cannot avoid stuffing the keyboard with abbreviations below the Numpad. Since Tarkov’s key mapping is so extensive, we have some shortlists here!
