    What is your hotkey for xenos abilities?

    Recently I have been playing Xenos more often and I am wondering what is the best hotkey for activating abilities.

    I personally use F, C and V for xeno abilities 1-3. I find that I can press them fast, as they're right next to movement keys, and close enough together to be able to speedily switch for combos. Of course, everyone has their own preferences and you may find this doesn't work for you.

    I usually use z, F, and C, but I might try your loadout.

    Z is the default change hand button, so I have it in use already. However, if you have hand swap bound somewhere else, that does seem like a good placement

    do you use macros, or the keybind setting in CM?

    Still using old macros, too lazy to transfer them over.

    Arent X suppose to be the default changing hand button, Z is for activating in-hand items, I use Z for activating abilities because I won't be using it when I am playing Xenos.

    Macros put on buttons that are easy to reach withouth looking down.

    E,F,Q and I also have a gaming mouse with lots of buttons. The way I set it up is when I press e.g. Mouse 6, that equals for the letter "j". I do this with a third party software. So now, I can macro in-game the letter j for an other xeno ability. Works quite well.
