In Cyberpunk 2077, what makes you a criminal? Well, I suppose trying to rebind the keys. So quick tutorial on how to make it work.
Warning. This tutorial involves editing game configuration files. Make a copy of the original files just in case.
You can use Notepad, but I would recommend downloading a dedicated editor like Notepad++.
Next, you need to find inputUserMappings.xml in Cyberpunk 2077 game files. The files will be located depending on what launcher you are using.
For Steam, it will be one: Steam > steamapps > common > Cyberpunk 2077 > r6 > config. For Epic games and GoG it’s <path-togame>\r6\config\inputUserMappings.xml
If you cannot find them, just download the Everything search app to make your life a lot easier. It’s available on https://www.voidtools.com/.
So now we have located our configuration file, we can start to rebind the keys. Make a backup copy of the inputUserMappings.xml. And Open it up.
In this article, I will demonstrate how to Remap the F key. For more examples, take a look at the article at www.tarantulo.lt website. Or if you have questions, just leave a comment below.
You can also open the User Settings file for additional key binding combinations, but this is optional. Run this command:
%LOCALAPPDATA%\CD Projekt Red\Cyberpunk 2077\UserSettings.json
Remapping the action F key is probably the most complex because it is used in multiple places for different actions.
How everything works? Every section with open/closed brackets define the action and the key. For example, let’s find a more interesting with the F key. Open the search and type in exactly “IK_F”. Lots of information, but you only want to replace the letter F, in this case, with a Mouse Key.
Next, we click to open the replace tool. Then, type in the what field: “IK_F” and in the with field: “IK_Mouse5” and then press the Replace All.
At the bottom, you will get a notification that it replaced everything in the entire file. That’s good.
Save the file and close it. To make sure the game does not overwrite the file, make it read-only. Right-click properties and set the attribute. But just in case, a copy of your modifications.
Now, let’s launch the game and look at what we have changed.
Here let’s take a look at this car. As you can see, key binding changed from the F key to the Mouse key to enter the vehicle.
Although to Exit the vehicle, it still remains the F key, which you must change in the settings menu. Let’s do it now.
Congratulation, you just became a real-life netrunner by modifying the Cyberpunk 2077 in-game configuration files.
Now, as we did, a full rebind for the F key. You can customize and change the other keys you want. Currently locked keys include the arrow keys, I, O, J, K, M, P, and possibly others. I will try to update the article with more information in the future.
Below you will find a list of keys that are locked
