Fortunately, swimming in Party Animals is a pretty straightforward job. To swim, just press the LShift button if you are using a mouse+keyboard or the LT button if you are using a controller. This is also the button that is used for sprinting when on land.

For controlling the character when swimming, use W-A-S-D or left analog stick, depending upon the equipment. Furthermore, if you hold down the same button when swimming, you will swim faster.

Tips & Tricks for swimming in Party Animals

Before you go swimming, keep an eye on the stamina bar denoted by yellow around your profile icon. Much like any other game, the more stamina you have, the longer you’ll be able to stay on water and avoid drowning. Do not rush into swimming if your stamina bar is already low. The stamina bar replenishes over time, so you can just wait for it to reach a high threshold before you go swimming.

Lastly, it’s very important to understand that swimming in Party Animals shouldn’t be a regular activity as it severely slows your character down, making you an easy target. It should only be indulged in if you have no other options left, and even then, your first priority should be to grab any ledge and come out of the water as quickly as possible.
