Crouch jumping in PUBG is very powerful: it allows you to reach places you couldn’t normally get to with a simple jump, but—more importantly—it lets you jump through windows (that’s why this is also called a “window jump key bind“)
Some people think it’s unfair to have the crouch jump key bind .. but this will all be outdated.
Because not many new players are aware of this, some people think it’s unfair to have the crouch jump key bind in PUBG, but honestly, it’s something that a lot of people are catching up on, and also this will all be outdated once the new vaulting patch is live.
How to Bind Crouch Jump in PUBGUPDATE Sep 23:
There are two ways you can do this, one is in-game (which is by far the easiest), the other way involves manually editing your PUBG config.
Let’s take a look..
Crouch Jump In-Game Key Mapping With default keys, Go to the secondary column for crouch and click on it. Press SHIFT + SPACE BAR. Go to the secondary column of jump and click on it. Again, press SHIFT + SPACE BAR, but this time don’t let go of SHIFT and click in the primary column. Let go of SHIFT and you should have both keys bound to the same combo. Finally, click Apply. Now when you run and jump, your character will automatically crouch jump every time. Makes jumping out of windows a breeze.
Crouch Jump Key Mapping through Game Config Press Windows Key + R. Type “%localappdata%\TslGame\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor” Open the file “GameUserSettings.ini” with Notepad. Ctrl+F “Jump”. After “Keys=((Key=SpaceBar),” add “(Key=SpaceBar,bShift=True),” Ctrl+F “ToggleCrouch”. After the first comma (,) paste “(Key=SpaceBar,bShift=True)))”. Ctrl+S to Save. For all of these, of course you just paste the stuff within the quotes only.
Easier version (be careful, this will remove your other custom Jump and Crouch keybinds though): Select from
(ActionName="Jump",Keys all the way to the end of the
ToggleCrouch action Keys=((Key=C))) (see screenshot below)

How to Crouch Jump Without the Key BindOnly way to crouch jump as of Sep 23
Finally, in case you wanna be on the same playing field as everybody else and want to crouch jump without using a shortcut, you can practice crouch jumping like so:
With the default key binds, you press the spacebar with your thumb knuckle, while the tip of your thumb hits the “c” key. (see the picture below)
It takes a little bit of practice, but after a while, you will be able to crouch jump every single time – your muscle memory will kick in and every time you wanna crouch jump you will automatically slide your thumb forwards to hit both the spacebar and the “c” key at the same time.
Hope this helps! Happy windowjumping!
