This past weekend I had the opportunity to be what every father wants, if only for a moment: the “cool dad”. My wife was out of town and my youngest son wanted to play PUBG. I caved in, taught him the basic FPS key binds, and he was having a great time. While he was fragging out, he pressed a bunch of random keys and ended up changing movement buttons.

To restore the WASD keys as movement keys, press the FN+W key combination. You’ll switch back to WASD keys for movement and be back on top of your game!
