F5— change team;
F11— disconnect from server;
F10— quit game;
b— open in-game quick menu;
e— use item (hook or grenade, depending on server);
y— team chat;
f— drop weapon or ride a player/monster.
First you need to find your Xonotic data directory:

config.cfg— generated automatically by the game;
autoexec.cfg— user config that will be automatically executed on game start.
Place these settings in your
