Where are the Overwatch key bindings stored?

All I was able to find is C:\Users\xxx\Documents\Overwatch\Settings\Overwatch\settings_v0.ini, but those are only graphical/sound settings. I need keybindings, like W for "Walk forward".

I understand they can be in unreadable hex format, but still - where is the file, which saves all those settings? It should be somewhere.

  • You don't want in-game one? Just the file? – n_plum Mar 31 '17 at 12:20
  • @n_palum, I what the place where the settings are stored, what do you mean by "in-game one"? – klm123 Mar 31 '17 at 12:25
  • Like when you're in the game and you can change your key bindings – n_plum Mar 31 '17 at 12:25

I've found multiple sources stating that keybindings are stored server side - meaning you won't be able to get that file without Blizzard sending you it (which they likely won't).

One source believes its in a folder called casc under Overwatch/data/casc/. From there, there is a folder called config, but the files might be in an unreadable format. The image below is from the linked source:

File Structure

  • Well. The believe of the third source has no ground, since when you change settings the casc dirrectory doesn't change. I guess it is server side storage, then. I didn't thought about this option. – klm123 Mar 31 '17 at 12:34
