With the final beta keys being given to the lucky ones who signed up for it. It is time to dive in and try out Shadow Arena, but if you haven't and you plan to make the most out of your time, while downloading the game, we're here to help you out to skip the tutorial regarding controls, here's a beginners guide regarding the controls in Shadow Arena.

Basic Movement

First and foremost you need to know how to move and don't worry, it's very easy to remember since it's the legendary W A S D, yep the WASD keys are for moving and that is notable to remember, but you can do more actions with it like press W and add Shift to run! Add in a memorable SPACE button to jump as the usual games does. And use S with Space to sit down, but if you want to do the prone position, hold those buttons.

Attacks and Skills

Attacking is also easy to do in the game. Use your Left Mouse Button to do a basic attack. For skills, the controls are 1,2,3,4, F, and Right Mouse Button. Pretty standard and you won't get lost if you even want to. If you want to level up a skill, you need to press Ctrl then either 1,2,3,4. Pretty easy!

Item Controls

If you see an item on the ground, Press R, this button is close to your movement so you will not have a hard time doing it so. Pressing G on the other hand makes you equip an item you own. You can also press G to combine 3 identical items to make it a higher-level equipment. This way, upgrading items would be easier to handle than doing a lot of stuff for a simple upgrade.

Advanced Movement

Now, things can get dicey in times of battle and you will feel like escaping is the best way to deal with the situation. Shadow Arena has prepared you with movements that will definitely save your life in a pinch because these movements focuses on escaping. For running away quickly and avoiding the mob to get to you, simply press E, this will blink you out of the fight and escape a would-be death scenario. However, if the enemy is surrounding you and you cannot breakthrough, press Q, this causes you to become invulnerable and knocks enemies up for a perfect escape. But remember, not all these things you can do anytime. Even if not stated, these skills will likely have a cooldown that you need to observe than willy-nilly doing these skills just to make things easier.


The controls of Shadow Arena are really easy to remember since it's usually used by common RPGs and are so close to each other that you don't have to worry about the whole keyboard in handling movement. However, even if it's still really easy to remember, mastery of these commands will be the better factor in maneuvering in the game. We hope that this simple guide will help you jumpstart your experience in Shadow Arena, especially if you are a final beta tester.
