How to change a swap route

When using Uniswap, you can change the route of your swap in swap settings.

 

The options available are:

  1. Default trade: Selecting this option allows Uniswap to determine the best route for your swap. This option uses liquidity on both Uniswap v2 and v3 liquidity pools.

  2. UniswapX: This option is only available on the Uniswap Web app. When enabled, swaps will be routed through UniswapX when eligible.

  3. v3 pools only: Selecting this option will force your swap to only use Uniswap v3 liquidity pools for the swap route.

  4. v2 pools only: Selecting this option will force your swap to only use Uniswap v2 liquidity pools for the swap route.
