The Ultimate Crab Game Movement Guide (2022). This will optimize your movement in Crab Game, making you significantly better. Trust me, this has worked for me massively and you can win many games by having better movement rather than just drifting along. Most Crab Game players have utilized this movement for their own gain, so you will need to keep up, otherwise you won't ever get a chance to have a sweet victory of $45,000,000,000,000,000 Venezuelan bolivars.
Step One (Basic Movement)
Anyways, let's get into the basics. So you might've noticed you have a keyboard. And on that keyboard, there are the letters W, A, S, D, Shift and C. When you enter a game of Crab Game, these are the most important things you will need in the game. Without this you cannot move, therefore you will lose. So you need to press these keys in the game.
(This depends on your keybinds, but these are the default ones)
W goes forward
S goes backwards
A goes left
D goes right
Shift speeds you up
C enables you to crouch
Space makes you jump
You might notice you can now move. This is good, but you are still losing to the sweaty 7 year olds getting yelled at by their parents on the proximity chat. You notice, they are jumping and crouching, moving super fast, you wonder how you can do that... You will learn in the next step.
Step 2 (Intermediate Movement)
So by now you should know the basic controls. Try to memorize these as you go on. This intermediate movement will change your perception of the game and change your playstyle.
You might notice that if you hold the D or A key, you go slightly faster than if you were pressing W.
Now, here is your first step to intermediate movement.
Press W + A or W + D.
It is diagonal movement. It might be weird at first, but you will get the hang of it. It can be used to perform any movement action such as jumping, sliding or climbing. It doubles your speed. It is much better rather than just pressing W.
It isn't too useful, but if you slide either diagonally with W + A/W + D, you can slide infinitely. You are losing speed but you can combine it with other jumping techniques.
Step 3 (Advanced Movement)3.1: Diagonal Jump3.2: Crouch Diagonal Jump
By now you know how to do W + A/W + D. Keep practising this in practice mode.
Here is one of the most important things to learn when you know how to diagonally move. So to start, press space to jump. Then, press W and go forward and jump. Notice how it gives you a slight speedboost? So continue practising that, until you have reached a point where you think you have memorized it.
Then, combine what you learnt with diagonal movement with jumping, and it gives you a slight speedboost. This is important in-game and will help you a lot.
This is a more advanced version of the Diagonal Jump and will take a lot of time to master, but it is easy once you get the hang of it. So notice if you jump forward and crouch it gives you another slight speed boost? You could combine this with something else...
Combine what you learnt with the Diagonal Jump (W + D/A + Space) with crouch. Your final result should be (W + D/A + Space + C) Most people do this and it is very easy to do once mastered.
There are more techniques you can learn in the next step, but not all of them are necessary.
Step 4 (Additional Tricks/Tips)4.1: Superjump4.2: Wallhop4.3: Ladderhop4.4: Tire Boost
By now, you have mastered the things taught in the previous steps of this guide. It will help you, but these tips and tricks will help you in-game, some will massively help you like the Tire Boost, but some won't do much.
It is very effective. Hold Shift and W + A while facing right to jump, or the other way around with Shift and D + A by facing left. You can also combine this with jumping to crouch.
Extremely effective for Red Light Green Light and some other maps which are enclosed. Do superjumps constantly while dragging alongside the wall. Therefore, it is a "safe" way to win Red Light Green Light since you can't be pushed in the open field. You can combine it with crouching as well (is called a Sliding Wallhop)
Very effective for climbing up ladders fast. Press W + A/D while looking upwards. It doubles your speed.
Extremely effective for Race maps. When you are about to hit a tire, or the moment you hit it, press space. It will increase your jump massively, giving you a significant boost. It takes a lot to master but is very effective when you get the hang of it.
P.S i'll update this list if I find more things.
