Before you start even playing the game, we recommend that you instantly change your settings to 120 FPS Mode for Wild Rift. Having your game run on high FPS provides you with a real competitive advantage even if your monitor's refresh rate does not support it. As soon as you switch to 120 FPS Mode, you will notice a drastic increase in overall speed, fluidity, and responsiveness which can be of paramount importance, especially as the new ranked season starts.


Key Bind Presets / Mapping:

With the game's regional launch, LDPlayer has committed itself to emulate League's PC controls to the mobile version of the game as much as possible. As such, LDPlayer’s keyboard mapping for Wild Rift feature now lets you use different key binds that help completely reproduces LOL’s PC version. Here is the Default presets available in the game:


  • PC Model
  • WASD Model
  • Controller Key Mapping


Do note that you will also be able to set and adjust your own presets if you so, please. However, we recommended using the Default presets as they closely emulate various platforms.


Cancel Cast Abilities and Switch Field Of View:

LDPlayer allows you to cancel cast abilities so that you can mock out your skills or bait out enemies. By using the cancel cast key bind, you will not be wasting your ability either.


The Emulator also lets you switch your field of view in Wild Rift by pressing the Ctrl key, locking the mouse in the Emulator's window. You can then use the V key to move your field of view quickly. For a more detailed explanation of how you can use LDPlayer to take advantage of these mechanics, take a look at these Wild Rift tips and tricks!


Improve your Movement with Mini Map Pathing:

Wild Rift has tons of customization options that let you completely alter the game mechanics. One such mechanic that is extremely useful, especially if you are a Jungler or a Mid Laner, is Mini Map Auto Pathing.


By default, if you click on the Mini Map, your camera pans to that location which is not always useful. By using the particular setting shown above, you can change this option. Now you should click on any region on the map, and your champion should instantly start moving there with automatically finding the quickest route.




With Wild Rift Update 2.2 finally being released, we’re now going to see a lot of involvement from the Americas as the region is now finally supported. Moreover, the game seems to be getting much more polished as time is passing.
We can’t wait to see what the game has in store for us! Stay tuned for more updates. Plus, don’t forget to download and play the game on LDPlayer for the best experience possible!
