Apex Legends Keyboard shortcuts / controls

Apex Legends, just like any other game, has it’s own set of keys. Some are obvious – movement and shooting are usually the same game after game – but some are less so. The abilities and the inventory management system, as well as communicating with other Legends in your team can throw you for a loop. So here is the guide for the controls in this game:
