If you’re planning on playing Mortal Kombat 11 on PC, then learning the keybinds is going to be a bit tougher than it would be on a gamepad, or even on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. You’ll be using a keyboard and mouse by default here, and the controls are a bit more complex and spread out.

Move Name Default Button
Front Punch J
Back Punch I
Front Kick K
Back Kick L
Block O
Interact ;
Flip Stance U
Jump W
Duck S
Move Left A
Move Right D
Character Assist P
Clear stage M

As with the other platforms, players will also find options for the Input Window timing, Krushing Blows Held Check, Release Check, Alternate Control, Input Shortcuts, and Button Shortcuts. You can change these settings to match your own personal preferences. Of course, as with any fighting game on PC, most players will probably be playing with a gamepad. If that’s the case, make sure you also check out our Xbox One controls for Mortal Kombat 11, as that button configuration will most likely line up more with what you’re going to be using.
