Unfortunately, Gang Beasts does not have many customization options when it comes to your controls. On console, you can find the Input section in Settings and swap the left and right punch to move to the triggers instead of the bumpers. On PC, there is a remap option that will cycle through the controls and allow you to choose which input to apply.
