With its recent introduction to the Game Pass roster, Gang Beasts has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity. The game, a multiplayer fighting game in which players control weak-kneed gummy bears, was originally released to early access in 2014 and became an instant success. However, the likes of Humans Fall Flat and Fall Guy (and Among Us, to a degree), have since made likeable, amorphous bipeds as much their thing. Hopefully, as players discover our Gang Beasts controls guide, the drunk Jelly Baby fighting game will find its feet once more.

Despite the game being available for Oculus Rift since 2016, in this Gang Beasts controls guide we’re focusing on the pancake version on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. With the Oculus Rift S about to be discontinued and the VR version of the game still laboring in early access, it’s safe to assume that Gang Beasts VR won’t be standing any time soon.
