Pressing Ctrl while zooming forces you to hold Ctrl to zoom manually, otherwise tilts camera

this seems like it might be related to a previous report, since it has similar effects: Horizontal scroll w/ mouse wheel breaks camera zoom and instead tilts camera

this is how to replicate the problem on PC:

  • Hold Ctrl
  • Mousewheel in/out
  • Release Ctrl
  • Mousewheel in/out

you’ll notice that on the default baseplate, and some front page games, this causes the camera to begin tilting instead of zooming whenever you try to zoom in or out, unless if you hold Ctrl down. this is quite annoying, especially in games that might have functionality binded to Ctrl.

here’s a table listing a few games this is present in, and not present in, as of February 3, 2020.

Game Bug Present?
Default Baseplate Yes
Welcome to Bloxburg Yes
Ninja Legends Yes
MeepCity Yes
Jailbreak No
Adopt Me No
Royale High No

for context, I play on PC, on a desktop. my mouse is a Logitech G502, and my keyboard is a Corsair K95


this was allready found to be with logitech mouses only, by pressing a very “soft” button.
by pressing ctrl, you are using a double negate.


I use a Microsoft mouse and this also happens in some games too. I don’t understand why this glitch / bug happens.


is the mouse a gaming mouse with extra buttons ?
if my memory serves me right it has to do with some pan function connected to the mouse wheel (at least in Logitech)
if not then the scope has just increased and the current theory thrown out… (as i understand it)

My mouse (Talon Blu) has no horizontal scrolling or panning feature to my knowledge and I could reproduce this on all marked games listed in the OP, with the exception of the default baseplate (I tested in Studio though, maybe it happens exclusively in-game).


Normal behavior with scroll wheel will zoom in and out.

If you press ctrl + scroll wheel, the normal behavior will break by rotating the camera instead of zooming.

This could be game breaking, but in order to zoom after the bug starts it then requires you to hold ctrl as well.

This started happening about a month or two ago.

this video demonstrates it, so i did scroll only, ctrl + scroll, released scroll, then just scroll.

I’ve had this happen to me within games! Gets really annoying cause I have to rejoin to fix it.


I believe this is related to the re-release of trackpad gestures. Ever since they came back, this has been an issue. I’ve mentioned this in a similar way before, where if you used a gesture successfully, scrolling with a mouse would break (unless Ctrl is scrolled, I didn’t fully know this at the time) and this, now, still continues to be an issue. It’s minor since gestures no longer work for me (which I never really cared about anyway, kind of ruins my flow), but this issue that has appeared also annoys me, especially when I have to rejoin through restarting the client (not through TeleportService)


I can verify that I am also having this issue right now. The only way to fix it is by rejoining


We have a fix coming out for this later this week.


I’m still having this issue, was the fix delayed?


I have made a temporarily fix for this.
Place the PlayerModule in StarterPlayer and replace the BaseCamera module with this.

Still having issues. It makes the game I’m playing harder to play.


Still getting this issue early may 2020. Seems to work in any game when you accidentally scroll when holding left ctrl (In my case). I have a standard Microsoft keyboard and mouse, this issue even works on my laptop, completely cutting off being able to play Roblox games without needing to hold left ctrl all the time, even doing so you cannot use any other keys to toggle zoom functionality. If I cannot replicate it in some games, I sometimes just randomly get it during game-play.


Hi, could we have an update on the fixes regarding this issue? It seems to be a lot more common in some of my games than others (likely because some use CTRL as a legitimate keybind for an action) and it has become somewhat of a large annoyance for my players. Thanks.

Turns out this issue is still live for some of us, just about 2 days ago when I was checking out a game, I had that same bug appear once more. I’m sure many other users that are not a part of this forum are having the same issue as well, so it’d be cool if you could check-in, once more.

The bug is still happening did the fix get delayed or something?


This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.


This bug is still an issue, do we have any updates for a possible new patch? As many games that people play on ROBLOX, require the Ctrl key as a keybind. So, this bug really does hinder some user enjoyment of their favorite games that need such a keybind.

It has been an issue for many decades. The development team of ROBLOX is trying hard as they can to fix this bug. It is said that it will be fixed, once David Baszucki ascends into the seventh silver throne of heaven
