Max Payne 3 PC Keyboard Controls Guide

Max Payne, a standout series initially cooked up by the Finnish studio Remedy, is probably one of the top third-person shooters of its day—especially the first 2 games… Then, with its third installment, it rolled into Rockstar’s hands, which was a total 180 from Remedy. They still tossed in their two cents to the new devs about Max Payne 3 & were on deck for testing the fresh game… wasn’t as big a hit as the first duo, but still, it was solid.


I mean, it didn’t spark that same special feel and vibe for players, maybe ’cause it wasn’t crafted by Remedy Entertainment. After the buzz & success of Alan Wake 2, maybe, just maybe, we’ll catch a new Max Payne from them—who knows… In this guide, we’ll share with you the default keyboard controls & keybinds for the series’ third game, so bookmark it for easy reference anytime you need a quick look—it could come in handy.
