Most actions use Stamina, which you can see in the top left surrounding your character’s portrait. Roll is only available while running.

In order to throw, you must first grab. You can throw players and objects, but not weapons. In order to grab, you must align with its handle. Weapons unlock three attacks: a light hit with Kick, a heavier hit with Grab, and Headbutt.

Heavy Punch is Hold Run + Punch. When doing a Running Jump Kick, Hold Run then Jump and Kick.

Party Animals is available on PC and Xbox Series S/X.
