How to switch between weapons from your inventory?

On PC, switching between weapons is very easy - by default, you use the mouse roll - Anthems controls - Controls and system requirements - Anthem Guide

On PC, switching between weapons is very easy - by default, you use the mouse roll. The PS4 and XONE versions are more complicated - you can't switch your weapons by pressing only one button. Instead, you need to hold the interaction button - Square on PS4 and X on XONE.

Note - You can switch between weapons only when you have equipped your Javelin with two different firearms (go to the forge before you start a mission). You can't add another weapon to your weapon slot during a mission or Freeplay. You need to go back to Fort Tarsis first. The second weapon slot is unlocked after your pilot reaches level 3.

How to invert flight controls?

Anthems default flight controls work like this - your character moves in the same direction that the analog stick is tilted - Anthems controls - Controls and system requirements - Anthem Guide

Anthem's default flight controls work like this - your character moves in the same direction that the analog stick is tilted. This means that, e.g. tilting up makes your character increase their altitude. You can invert the Y-axis to make the Javelin control more like a plane. After inverting the controls, tilting the analog stick will make your Javelin go up, and tilting up will make your character fly downwards.

Open the game's menu and go to Controller Settings. Find Invert Flight Look setting (see the picture above). Turn it on. You can do the same with the swim controls - turn Invert Swim Look on.
