DC Universe Online Keyboard and Chat Commands List



DC Universe Online Keyboard and Chat Commands List by Kithkarnon

I have pulled this info from a couple of different places and testing myself, since it seems to come up often enough.  Hopefully someone will sticky this and I will update it, as/if I find more.
I have done some testing with the PS3 Keypad, a BT keyboard/mouse, Wireless keyboard/mouse and USB keyboard/mouse – here is the results of my findings.  The game cannot be playing with a keyboard/mouse combo (the mouse in particular, does nothing).  Whether it is a BT, wireless, USB or Keypad, they all work the same for the chat shortcuts and the game shortcuts (they must have improved keyboard support in the Jan 16th patch, because I know prior to then the shortcuts did not work on my BT keyboard, but all the work the same now).  Keyboards do not work for WASD controls.

It is recommended that you use a keyboard with DCUO, it is a MMO and chatting is required and even once headset chat is working smoothly, not everyone uses a headset.  I personally recommend the PS3 Keypad, it is a litttle slower to type on than a keyboard, but it is right at your fingertips and realistically is better than the average cell phone for texting.

  • By typing a slash [ / ] before certain typed commands in the chat window, you will be able to specify how, or to whom, you chat. The following are useful chat commands:

    • /group or /party or /g or /p – Say something to members of your group
