Best Uses of Shove in Baldur’s Gate 3
There are four best uses of Shove in the game Baldur’s Gate 3. Let us take a look at all of them in detail:
Pushing enemies off of cliffs
When you shove enemies off cliffs, they will take a lot of damage due to the fall damage. Go to higher places and let them follow you so you can easily eliminate them.
Pushing enemies into Traps
You can also push the enemies into traps like spiked surfaces, flaming ground and others, and use shove for that extra damage. However, to make it work, you need good positioning.
Waking up the Sleeping Allies
You can make use of shove to wake up your allies from their slumber if, in battles, due to spells, they ever slept. This will not inflict any damage on them, so it’s quite safe to use, especially in such situations.
Moving Allies Away from Danger
As long as your allies are within your reach, you can shove them and move them away from danger. This is essential when they are out of movement and stuck in a position that would prove highly disadvantageous for them.
Outside of Combat(using shove)
Apart from all of the above uses, you can get creative and use shove out of combat to move objects to prepare a trap or to pass through the obstacles. When not in combat, you have unlimited uses of shove, so there is nothing to worry about!
