Command & Conquer™: Renegade PC Keyboard Controls Guide

Set in the game world of the original Command & Conquer RTS, Renegade is a first person shooter all about a commando named Havoc & a simple plot that unfolds over 12 missions. It ain’t exactly a ground breaking FPS and in fact, it’s got a couple of flaws that leave it kinda a step behind the best in the genre…


Renegade’s mostly for the fans of Command & Conquer, thanks to the many nods & tributes to the original game, but probably won’t catch the eye of those who haven’t played C&C. And guess what? Luckily, the game’s on Steam, yea, even after more than 20 years… & it looks like it still has a pretty solid player base. According to SteamDB, it’s hanging onto about 200 solid online players after its launch.


This guide? It’s here to help you if you’re looking to dive in after 20 years, listing all the controls & keybindings you’ll need to play.
