We’ve split our Destruction AllStars controls guide into Driving and On Foot sections so that you can easily find the inputs you need. Remember that while on-foot you can also perform a number of parkour moves live wall running or climbing simply by jumping onto the correct surface.

To drift around a corner while driving, tap Circle as you steer to that side. You can also perform a quick turn while reversing by steering to the side, then accelerating forwards. Shake Off woul-be hijackers by waggling the steering stick left and right. Beyond that, it's worth remembering that Eject will launch you high into the air, while Exit Vehicle hops you out lower to the ground. Don't forget your Hero Vehicle's Breaker power either, as these can rack up major points when used correctly.

D-Pad directions

While on foot in Destruction AllStars you have access to a unique set of controls and movement options. In addition to moving around in regular fashion, make sure you tap X when climbing to speed up movement, or tap Circle when landing from a height to perform a boost landing. You can also tap Circle to vault low obstacles quickly.

To pull off an evade, wait for the yellow warning lines to flash over your character’s head, letting you know that a car is approaching. Tap Circle when you see them and your character will leap into the air in slo-mo while glowing. You can then hit Triangle to attempt to Takeover or wreck the car which tried to run you down. Hit the on-screen prompts faster than they can shake you off to succeed.

And with that, you’ve learned the full Destruction AllStars controls for PS5. Mastering your slams and how to avoid opponents while on foot is crucial to success. If you’re not quite ready to get out there and cause more carnage, visit our Destruction AllStars hub page for more guides and content.
