WWE 2K22 – How to Carry Opponents in a match

WWE 2K22 if finally out on all platforms. The long wait is finally over as we finally get a good enough wrestling game that we waited so eagerly for.

WWE 2K20 was glitch fest to be honest and this one is quite the opposite. The gameplay is smooth and fluid. The visuals are the best thing about WWE 2K22. The player models, the atmosphere , the lighting and the arena affects are all spot on.

The controls this year however are a bit different. They removed the concept of press and hold the attack buttons for a heavy attack. Instead they introduced a separate button for heavy attacks. This would actually give you two in game attack buttons for Light and Heavy along with the grapple button.

You are allowed to make different combos of light and heavy strike moves along with light and heavy grapple attacks. This is the first time we have genuine combos in the game. Not like the usual one button mashing strike combos we had previously.

How to Carry Opponents in WWE 2K22 :

The Carry feature had been there for a few years now. To be honest I was never a huge fan of this feature. But this year I find myself doing the Carry moves over and over again just because how smoothly they function in game.

This is how you do the Carry move in game :

First Grapple your opponent by pressing Circle on you PlayStation , on your Xbox and the Grapple button (Default L) on the keyboard for PC. Then to initiate a carry press R1 on your PlayStation RB on your Xbox and press the Dodge/Climb ( Default O) button on the keyboard for PC.

If you just press the R1, RB or the Dodge/Climb button without giving any left stick direction to your superstar, he will pick up the opponent in a default Shoulder Carry

Press Left Stick Up and then Press R1/RB button to  do the Powerbomb Carry

Press Left Stick Down then Press R1/RB to do the  Cradle Position

Press Left Stick Left then Press R1/RB to do the Fireman’s Carry

Press Left Stick Right then Press R1/RB to do the Shoulder Carry

Right Stick in any direction to change the Carry Position.

After you get into the Carry Position :

Press X/Square/ Light Attack button to do Environmental Attack. 

Press  A/X/ Heavy Attack button to do a Slam .

Press B/Circle/Grapple button to Throw your opponent from over the ropes or off the stage.

Keep mashing B / Circle / Grapple Button continuously to Escape from a Carry if you are on the receiving end.
