As you channel your inner adorable ragdoll critter and engage in merciless fluffy combat in Party Animals, you might’ve wondered about climbing. It’s a highly useful maneuver that can get you back into the arena or allow you to reposition for a surprise attack. In this guide, we’ll tell you how to climb in Party Animals.

How to Climb in Party Animals

Climbing is an automatic action that requires holding down two buttons. To climb in Party Animals:

  • Approach a wall.
  • Grab it with R2 (PS5), RT (Xbox), or Left mouse (PC) and hold.
  • Then, hold the jump button (Triangle for PS5, Y for Xbox, and Spacebar for PC).

Your character will proceed to slowly climb the surface until you reach the top. That said, reaching the top can be a little janky, so be sure to aim your landing to avoid falling back down.

You can use climbing to get back to the arena when someone knocks you down. Additionally, reaching the high ground by climbing can open extra movement options, keep you safe, or allow you to attack from above.
