When you’re playing a physics-based game like Teardown, your first instinct will probably be to start picking up and lobbing any random objects you come upon. Hey, if the game’s gonna have a physics engine, it should be a given that people are going to mess around with it, both to accomplish in-game goals and just for funsies. Here’s how to throw objects in Teardown.
In Teardown, when you stand in front of an object that isn’t welded to the ground or another surface, you can take hold of it by holding down the right mouse button. As long as you keep holding the right mouse button down, you’ll keep holding the object in front of you, and you can even whip your view around the smack it into surfaces or other objects.
How to Throw Objects in Teardown
If you want to throw the object that you’re holding, all you have to do is hold down the left mouse button while you’re still holding the right mouse button. You’ll bring the object closer to the center of your view, and if you release both mouse buttons simultaneously, you’ll launch the object a short distance in front of you. How far the object flies depends on how big and heavy it is, and if it’s hollow, it’ll probably chip or break upon impact.
You can also put a little spin on it if you turn your view, then whip it back right as you throw the object. That doesn’t really do anything, it’s just fun to launch a spinning brick through a window or something.
