There are special button combinations that function regardless of which control style has been selected.

  • Reverse Weapon Selection: Press the fire button while the weapon button is held down. Bond will switch through weapons backwards.
  • Faster Firing: Press the weapon button repeatedly while the fire button is held. This is especially useful with any semi-automatic weapon (pistols, for example).
  • Alternative Detonator: Press the weapon and action buttons together while remote mines are the active weapon (can be pressed in even if weapon button is pressed first or if action button is pressed first). Any mines Bond has placed will be detonated immediately.
