How to Throw in Gang Beasts

Gang Beasts is a game in which you battle against other players and teams in melee combat with your objects. Your character's fists are their primary weapons, as you can use them to hit, block, and throw. For new players, the controls can be tricky. In the guide below, we've explained how to throw anything, such as objects and other players.

There are four steps to completing a throw in Gang Beasts.

  1. Grab
  2. Lift
  3. Move
  4. Throw

These steps are all easy, and completing them is only a matter of pressing the correct buttons on your system. Here are the controls for each action on each system.

  • Two-Handed Grab (Face the object/player you wish to grab)
    • PlayStation: Hold L1 + R1
    • Xbox: Hold LB + RB
    • PC: Hold Left Click + Right Click
  • Lift (Lifts the character above your head to prepare to throw them)
    • PlayStation: Triangle
    • Xbox: Y
    • PC: Shift
  • Move: (Moves your character while carrying the object/player)
    • PlayStation: Left Analog
    • Xbox: Left Analog
    • PC: WASD
  • Throw: (Throws the object/player you're holding in the direction you're facing)
    • PlayStation: Release L1 + R1
    • Xbox: Release LB + RB
    • PC: Release Left Click + Right Click

For example, the control sequence for throwing on PlayStation would be as follows: Hold R1 + L1, Press Y, Move with Left Analog, and finally Release R1 + L1.

That's all there is to it! Now, go throw your enemies off a cliff!
