There are certain controls and settings that are exclusive to the Olympus servers. Many of these key binds must be used to play on the server. Others are optional, but they provide extra efficiency while completing in-game tasks. The Olympus settings menu is located under the gear in the Y Menu.

Custom Keybind Menu

A variety of personal key-binds can be set via the key-bind menu within the phone settings tab. You can open this menu by pressing Y > Settings > Keybind Menu. Keys below that are listed as Unbound can be set through this menu.

  • Each action supports multiple keybinds by pressing “Add New Binding”.
  • You can manage sensitivity to Shift, Alt, and Control per-binding with “Ignore Modifier”.
  • You can change an existing keybind with “Edit Binding”.
  • To delete a keybind, select it and press “Delete Binding”.
  • If you want to reset all the keybinds in this menu to its original state, with your pre-existing Custom Actions and default Olympus keybinds, press “Defaults”.
