BioWare's Anthem does a pretty good job of easing you into the world in the opening few hours, but it can still be pretty overwhelming at times. In this Anthem controls guide, we'll be getting you up to speed with a complete control scheme for Anthem, whether you're soaring through the skies, or fighting on foot.
But if you instead need help with any other areas of Anthem, you can head over to our main Anthem guides hub. Here you can find a complete beginner’s guide for BioWare’s new game, as well as an overview of all four Javelin types available.
Anthem Controls Overview
As we said at the top, there’s plenty that Anthem throws at you in the opening hours. Just below, we’ve compiled a complete list of all the controls for the game.

- Melee ability - Y
- Take off - A while airborne
- Aim - Left trigger
