Way to reset controls to default?
Bought the game a few min ago. I tried to change the movement keys to the arrow keys but now my menu goes crazy. It keeps going over all options with insane speed like someone keeps pressing the down key and I can't pick any menu option now reliable.

Is there a way to revert control back to default outside of the game?

This is happening to me, too! Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game, but the problem persists.

Yea I'm not sure why it does that, I managed to change the walk keys back to wsad now manually just by getting in the control menu and then spamming enter to change the walk keys.

Go to your Hotline Miami folder (usually like: steam\steamapps\common\hotline_miami) and delete the "keyboard.dat" file. Thats it :) No need to reinstall game.

This file only appears if you play Original version. If you play Updated version there's no easy way to reset controls, you have to delete your whole save file ^^'

From the FAQ:
Where are the save files?
There are two distinct save files, one for the Original version and one for the Updated version.
  • Original:
    • Windows: "saves.dat" in the game's folder (can be located by right-clicking on the game in your library -> Properties -> Local files -> Browse local files).
    • Mac: "<home>/Library/Application Support/Hotline Miami/saves.dat"

  • Updated:
    • Windows: "C:\Users\<username>\Documents\My Games\HotlineMiami\SaveData.sav"
    • Mac: "<home>/Library/Application Support/Hotline Miami/SaveData.sav"
    • Linux (xdg): "XDG_DATA_HOME/Hotline Miami/SaveData.sav"
    • Linux (others): "~/.local/share/Hotline Miami/SaveData.sav"
