Keyboard Shortcuts:
Written by zZz

This guide provides a useful list of keyboard shortcuts that aren’t mentioned
anywhere in the game or its manual.

If you hover over an empty space that you can build a tower on, you can press the
following number keys (located on the top row of the character keys) to build the
tower without having to use the mouse:

1 = Gun
2 = Inferno
3 = Laser
4 = Temporal
5 = Meteor
6 = Cannon
7 = Tesla
8 = Missile
9 = Concussion
0 = Command

Additionally, if you hover over a space that already has a tower on it, you
can press the following keys to upgrade or sell the tower:

U = Upgrade
Shift + U = Sell

These keyboard shortcuts cannot be performed with your keyboard’s numeric keypad
(which is the 3×3 cluster of numbers on the right side, if applicable).
If you have the tower menu open (to build a tower, or upgrade or sell it), you
have to close it. The keyboard shortcuts only work if the tower menu isn’t open.
