How will this help?

This article will help you use different control schemes for different game modes while playing Pixel Gun 3D on BlueStacks.

A first-person shooter game like Pixel Gun 3D consists of various key controls that change with the different game modes within the game, such as Team fight, Free play and Battle royale. Using the pre-defined control schemes has the following benefits:

  • The control schemes provided by BlueStacks will automatically switch your key controls for a specific game mode so that you don't have to manually adjust every key.
  • These control schemes help you control your in-game character flawlessly since they have been configured by avid gamers just like you.
  • You can edit these control schemes too as per your preference.
