Gang Beasts Complete List of Controls & Movements on PC, PS4 & Xbox One

POST CATEGORIES:

Gang Beasts is an amazing game, and one that is incredibly fun at parties, game nights or just to play with friends in general. It provides many laughs with the games physics and throwing others off buildings feels great. 

However, Gang Beasts has a lot of controls among all 3 platforms (PC, PS4 and Xbox One). Possibly too many to memorize. That’s why below, we’ve compiled a list of all of the controls currently in the game on all 3 different controllers. 

It is possible to remap the controls so that you can have something more manageable, which I would recommend doing if you’re playing on PC. 

Throwing Other Players

One movement that confuses a lot of players is how to throw your enemies off of buildings and structures. Well, the trick is to first knock them unconscious so they are on the ground (you can do it whilst they’re standing too, but they can fight back). 

Hold the Left Punch & Right Punch buttons to grab your enemy. Then hold the Lift/Taunt button to lift them into the air. You can now carry them to the edge, and using momentum, throw them off by letting go of all the buttons. 

PC Gang Beasts Controls

One thing to note is that Gang Beasts can feel very complicated to play using a keyboard due to the amount of controls. I personally would suggest you use an Xbox One or PS4 Controller alongside your PC in order to make it much easier. 

You can use either a standard wired Xbox 360 Controller or connect an Xbox One Controller or PS4 Controller via Micro USB. Then refer to the other lists of controls for the controller you are using below.
