Throwing People in Gang Beasts

Now, it’s always easier to throw people when their character in unconscious. Just knock them out with a headbutt or some punches. You can pick people up when they’re standing, but they’ll be able to fight back and get out of it quite easy.

To actually pick someone up, you will first need to grab them. You can grab by holding down the punch buttons which are LMB & RMB (Left and Right Mouse Buttons) on PC, L1 & R1 on PS4 and LB & RB on Xbox One. Note that these are the default controls, you might need to check your own mapping settings in the options. 

You should also note that if the other player is on the ground, you might need to bend down to grab them which can be done by holding LEFT CTRL on PC, CIRCLE on PS4 and the B Button on Xbox One.

You should now be attached to an enemy player in Gang Beasts. As long as they aren’t holding onto anything themselves, you should be able to lift them up by holding down LEFT SHIFT on PC, TRIANGLE on PS4 or Y on Xbox One. 

Now carry them towards the ledge, and using your momentum, throw them off. Remember that you will need to hold down the grab keys at all time and let them go to throw someone.
