Players have been calling Activision’s Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy an excellent remaster of the original 1996 video game. This new addition to the series includes a new soundtrack, voice actors, and a laundry list of old and well-known characters.

But we here at GameSkinny have figured it out so you don’t have to. In this short guide, we’ll give you the rundown of the Slide ability and what you need to do.

To use Slide, all you have to do is make Crash run, then press O or R1, which will activate the ability. 

What Makes Slide Useful?

This move is most effective when you’re building up to more advanced moves like Slide Jump (Slide+X) or Slide Spin (Slide+Square). It’s also a great move to use against enemies with shields, and it helps to open certain crates (so long as they are underneath a TNT or Nitro crate). 

That’s all you need to know! How has the Slide attack helped you in this game? Le us know in the comments! And be sure to check out the rest of our Crash Bandicoot guides to keep racing your way through this remaster:
