Hi guys can anyone tell me where I can get a full list of keyboard shortcuts for WOT's?

I had one some time back and being an old man of 67, I've gone and lost it in the deep

hidden folders on my pooter.


Thanks boys and warm regards to all

If you want the in game shortcuts you can hold "Z" and it'll give you the ability to drag the mouse to one command and it also has the hotkey variant like F7 being "Help"


If you want the desktop shortcut or directory to WoT it'll be default installed on c:\games\worldoftanks\ 


I can't decode your message anymore than that without help. If your query is not answered just re-describe your problem and I'll see if I can help.

Go in-game, open up the settings, there you can change to what ever keys you want, I believe the header is "Controls".

You'll also open this when you press Z:

Note the options change if you have nothing targeted, an ally or an enemy.

you can reconfigure your keybinds in the settings menu.


also I'd like to add this "guide" again :)


how to bind turret-lock aka mouselook to a different key


1. Go to the following folder: %appdata%\wargaming.net\WorldOfTanks\

2. make a backup copy of the file "preferences.xml"

3. open the original "preferences.xml" file with a text editor of your choice (notepad++ recommended)

4. go to the end of the file and add the following lines below "<commandMapping>"

Block Quote

                <fireKey>    KEY_K    </fireKey>
                <satelliteKeys />



that way the "mouselook" is now bound to the key "K".


Thumb keys on Mouse are usually "KEY_MOUSE4" and "KEY_MOUSE5"
