Total War: Warhammer III Hotkeys


  • Learn about the various hotkey commands that will help you better control your armies in both Campaign and Combat.
  • Total War: Warhammer III It will be available the same day it launches on PC Game Pass.

Your troops are scattered! The legions of Chaos surround you. It’s a matter of time before the remnants of your army become useless. The only option is that you succumb to the inevitable defeat.

It shouldn’t be that way though…

If only you had the tools to better command your troops on the fly. If you had the opportunity to know how to group your archers and cavalry in a more effective way. Or if you knew which hotkeys would give you better control of your army on the battlefield. Well, you came to the right place.

Here is a series of hotkeys available in Total War: Warhammer III, which will be available the same day it launches on PC Game Pass on February 17. Take a look at them and keep them very well (or print them if you prefer) while you prepare for the next fight between the Kingdom of Chaos and humanity.
