How Can You Do Cool Gang Beasts Tricks?

There are a lot of tricks to play on Gang Beasts. Some of the most famous ones are listed below:

Note: Below mentioned control buttons are for Xbox controllers.

1. Drop Kick: To perform this, the players simply have to jump and kick while still in the air with the A and X control buttons. This way, their opponent will get a foot in the face of the enemy, and they will have less time to react back.

2. Slide: It is a fun mode to fight. It is most effective on slippery surfaces like sheets of ice. Here you have to slide with the controls while you hit your opponent.

3. Dirt Feeder: In this, the players grab their opponent by the legs. If their opponent’s costume has a tail attached this becomes even more helpful. Once you grab them, try to lift them (Y) so they’re hanging upside down, and simply let go of the lift button (Y) to slam them on the ground.

4. The Climb Leap: This process is very easy and quick than the others. Here you have to grab onto a wall with both your hands and repeatedly jump up the wall by double-tapping on the jump button (A). This way you can pull off faster and attack with more self-protection.

5. Headbutt: During this, the players must grab (RB) each of their opponent’s shoulders. It is a tricky practice because the characters in Gang Beasts have small shoulders, and it gets difficult to get ahold of them. However, once you get ahold of the right place you just have to give a headbutt (B), and down they go.
