Manual control is a feature in X-Com Apocalypse. As opposed to the automated driving and interception in the game, the player can take manual control of a vehicle by pressing the "m" key. The available controls are listed below:

ESC Exit manual control
Page Up Increase speed
Page Down Decrease speed
Home (flying vehicles) Increase altitude
End (flying vehicles) Decrease altitude
Home (ground vehicles) U-turn
End (ground vehicles) Overtake
Right mouse button Set travel direction
Left mouse button Fire weapon


  • Flying vehicles will automatically change altitude to avoid crashing into buildings.
  • Road vehicles can crash into other vehicles when under manual control. Both vehicles will be destroyed instantly.
  • U-turns can be executed anywhere on a road, not only at junctions or the ends of roads.
  • The "overtake" command will move the vehicle into the opposite lane. Care should be taken not to crash into an incoming vehicle.
