Act of Aggression Hotkeys Guide

Act of Aggression Hotkeys Guide

Act of Aggression Hotkeys essential to speedy building and good management of attacking and defending forces.

The first thing to do is set your Quick Base Selection key to something other than R which is the default setting.  R is also used in a lot of submenus so it doesn’t work as the Quick Base Selection hotkey all the time which is confusing.

  • Esc > Options > Set to key of your choice.  The HOME key on the keyboard is handy and it’s not set to anything else as default and will take you back to the Quick Base Selection screen no matter what menu or submenu you are in.

Hotkey Notes

  1. Can not build units away from your base. You need to have the building you wish to build from selected and then select what to build.
  2. There is no key to jump your view back to your base. You can left click on your base on the mini map or you can hotkey a structure, like you do with groups. i.e Select your HQ then CTRL + 0 (can use 0-9). Can press 0 or click the thumbnail image of the building to return to base.
