wasd keysThe W, A, S, and D keys or WASD keys on the computer keyboard are used in place of the arrow keys. They are often used because they allow the gamer to have access to more of the keys around them, which means more keys may be assigned to other tasks in the game.

Note: When using the WASD keys the W key is used as an up arrow, A as the left arrow, S as the down arrow, and the D as the right arrow key.
