How to Carry Opponents in WWE 2K24

Pick ‘em up and toss ‘em around.




Sometimes you just want to grab a fool and slam them into the ground, which is exactly what you can do when you carry opponents in WWE 2K24.

Carrying opponents opens up a lot of possibilities to perform brutal finishing moves, plus it just looks extra flashy!

In this short guide, we’ll tell you everything there is to know about this mechanic so you can start carrying and slamming anyone who stands against you.

How to Carry Opponents

How to Carry Opponents in WWE 2K24

There are two ways to initiate a carry, with the most common being from a Grapple.


Start a Grapple by pressing either B (Xbox) or Circle (PlayStation) near your opponent

Initiated the carry

During the Grapple, press RB (Xbox) or R1 (PlayStation) to transition straight into a Shoulder Carry.

For the second method: push the Left Stick toward the opponent while holding down RB (Xbox) or R1 (PlayStation). This is a tad less safe than initiating the carry from a grapple, though.

Do note, your opponent can get out of the carry by mashing the Grapple button! Try to do an attack before they escape your grasp.

Different carry positions example

While you’re carrying your opponent, you can push the Right Stick to transition to other carry styles. The style will depend on the direction you push, as follows:

  • Up – Powerbomb Carry
  • Down – Cradle Carry
  • Left – Fireman’s Carry
  • Right – Shoulder Carry, which is the default style

You can, of course, also push the Left Stick while carrying your opponent to move. Use this to get those fools where you need ‘em to be!

Slamming a carried opponent

To finish the carry with a bang, you can do a variety of attacks while still carrying your opponent. The options are as follows:

  • Environmental Attack – Press X (Xbox) or Square (PlayStation). Your attack will change depending on where you take your opponent, such as slamming them onto the ropes if you’re near them.
  • Carry Attack – Press A (Xbox) or X (PlayStation) to perform a slamming attack and release your opponent.
  • Throw Out of the Ring – Press B (Xbox) or Circle (PlayStation) near the ropes to throw the fool you’re carrying outta the ring.

That’s everything there is to carrying opponents in WWE 2K24! For even more moves you can do, check out our full controls guide.
