Moving Out Cheats and Tips


Moving Out Cheats and Tips


1. Make sure you have at least one partner

Let’s preface this by noting that Moving Out is entirely playable as a single-player effort. Objects that are normally multiple-person jobs become doable by solo players.

However, if you’re looking to up your odds of success, then you want to hire some help. The more, the merrier, as they say. Recruit a partner or three and tackle jobs as a team, mainly because it opens up a wealth of different team-based strategies. (We’ll even hit up a few specific ones a little later.) It helps having somebody else around, especially near the end of a job when the priority becomes organization and creating space on the moving truck. And it always helps to have a free hand available when unexpected obstacles arise, like pesky tortoises or chickens trying to throw their weight around.

Plus, it’s just more fun to play with others. If you have a significant other or younger siblings around, Moving Out is loads of fun and really easy to pick up.

2. Focus on two-handed furniture first

Again, prefacing this one by noting that this is less of an issue in single-player, since two-handed furniture becomes liftable by a solo mover. But if you’re playing co-op, your priority should be moving the heavier furniture.

Focus on the bulkier items, like sofas and beds. These will eat up a majority of the space on your moving truck and you’ll want to make sure you aren’t struggling to find space in-between a bunch of smaller items. Remember that just because something is loaded onto the truck doesn’t mean it will stay on the truck. Because of Moving Out’s physics system, it’s entirely possible for something to spill out. You want to be as elegant in your stacking as possible. Think Homer Simpson trying to fit a bunch of junk (and his family) into his car.

After you finish with the larger items, focus on the other two-handed stuff, like the refrigerator. Once you’ve wrapped up with the multi-person jobs, you’re free to split up and take whatever remains. This should make stacking everything a lot easier.

3. Throw smaller items on top of bigger ones to make room

This one goes hand-in-hand with the previous tip. Some items can be stacked on top of one another. But you’re not exactly going to be throwing a bed on top of anything fragile or on top of a smaller box. Moving doesn’t work that way. However, you have a throwing function and it’s best to take advantage of it after loading in the larger items.

Before proceeding any further, take a moment to get the hang of throwing items. Don’t be afraid to change your preferences in the options menu. If you prefer your throw to be toggled, go for it. Getting the best out of your throws is a big key to success in Moving Out.

Take a smaller item and use your throwing function to toss it on top of the bed, sofa, or table. Small boxes and tinier appliances, like your toaster or your computer, will stack nicely atop that bigger stuff. Plus, that will leave extra room in the moving truck. You’re going to need that extra space, especially for yard items like that pesky grill or other single-person items that can’t be thrown.

The eyeball test should be enough to determine what can be thrown. Just be careful not to throw anything fragile, which is indicated by a red icon. If you throw a fragile item, it will shatter and respawn in its original place, wasting precious time.
