The classic move makes a comeback.

In the older Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade games, the Turtles had the ability to grab enemies and, with a little Mode 7 magic, hurl them right at the screen into oblivion. As Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is a proper sequel to those games, it’s only proper that that signature technique make a comeback. Here’s how to do Fling Tosses in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge – How to Do Fling Tosses

The Fling Toss is one of the follow-up moves you can perform to a regular grab attack. Just like in the old games, you’ll fling the grappled enemy right off the screen, immediately removing them from the fight. It’s a great way to thin out a busy melee, plus it’s absolutely hilarious.

To perform a Fling Toss, you’ll first need to grab an enemy. This is done by standing right next to them (and I mean right next to them; your sprites should be overlapping a bit) and pressing the attack button. You should place the enemy in a grapple automatically.

Here’s the important part: once you have an enemy in a grapple, you need to hold down on the D-pad and press the attack button again. If you don’t hold down first, you’ll just launch them sideways. It can be a bit of a tricky input, so you may need to practice a bit. Don’t feel bad about dedicating time to it, though, because there’s actually an achievement for launching 16 enemies off the screen with a Fling Toss.

One last thing: you can only perform Fling Tosses on regular enemies, such as the Foot Soldiers. Bosses like Bebop or Rocksteady can’t be Fling Tossed. It’d hardly be fair if you could just body them instantly.
