Hi! I added some functionality to Brackeys RPG camera control script, so now you can rotate it on all axis using mouse – hold RMB to rotate! Limits arent camera’s rotation, but mouse yaw. Values are a bit different, but it works perfectly fine, unlike camera rotation values (I couldn’t get it to work).  

public Transform target;
 public Vector3 offset;
 public float pitch = 2f;
 public float zoomSpeed = 4f;
 public float minZoom = 5f;
 public float maxZoom = 15f;
 public float yawSpeed = 100f;
 //Controls max and min rotation of camera on the X axis
 public float minYyaw = -10f;
 public float maxYyaw = 60f;
private float currentZoom = 10f;
 private float currentYawX = 0;
 private float currentYawY = 0;
 // Update is called once per frame
 void Update () {
currentZoom -= Input.GetAxis("Mouse ScrollWheel") * zoomSpeed;
 currentZoom = Mathf.Clamp(currentZoom, minZoom, maxZoom);
 if (Input.GetMouseButton(1))
 currentYawX += Input.GetAxis("Mouse X") * yawSpeed * Time.deltaTime;
 currentYawY -= Input.GetAxis("Mouse Y") * yawSpeed * Time.deltaTime;
 currentYawY = Mathf.Clamp(currentYawY, minYyaw, maxYyaw);
private void LateUpdate()
 transform.position = target.position - offset * currentZoom;
 transform.LookAt(target.position + Vector3.up * pitch);
 transform.RotateAround(target.position, Vector3.up, currentYawX);
 transform.RotateAround(target.position, transform.right, currentYawY);
