Knockout City – How Do You Use the Glider?

Here’s how you can glide your way into a smoother experience in Knockout City.

Gliding isn’t a new concept in Battle Royale games. Epic Games procured getting out your glider to fly across the Fortnite map a long time ago while Call of Duty: Warzone implemented a similar feature with the parachute.

While many of us who play Battle Royale titles are already accustomed to using the soaring mechanics, it’s always a good idea to be prepared and be in the know especially when heading into a new game like Knockout City.

So before you team up and get stuck in, let’s go over how you can get the most out of gliding.

How do you Glide in Knockout City?

You may ask, why do you need to glide in Knockout City? Firstly, gliding helps you evade other players and find a safe route when things become too intense.

Secondly, falling from heights or off the side of the map just isn’t a great idea plus, soaring through the air is actually a lot of fun. You can also customise and pick up a new glider from the store, too.

To glide in Knockout, for any reason, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  • Using an Xbox controller, press A to jump and A again to glide whilst in midair.
  • On PC, jump by pressing the space bar and then press the space key again to open your glider
  • On PS4, press the X button while jumping and press it once more to open the glider.

Happy Flying!

Knockout City releases May 21, 2021, on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Origin, Steam, and Epic Games Store. The game also offers full backwards compatibility on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
