How To Use Combos In Gang Beasts?

Although Gang Beasts has a lot of combos to offer, this article will only talk about the 3 most popular ones. Namely, these are Spinning Kick, Dropkicks, and Super Punch. To use Spinning Kick as your combo, the kick button needs to be held while jumping multiple times. This unleashes a handful of spinning kicks! 

As far as Dropkicks go, the player needs to run at the maximum speed, jump and then hold the kick button to charge at the opponent. Super Punches, on the other hand, are one of the most common ways to attack an opponent. They require ducking and then quickly pressing either the left or right punch.


From the different control settings on many different platforms to the best type of combos in Gang Beasts, we’ve talked about it all in this guide. That brings us to the end of this guide. Thank you for reading.
