As the release of Baldur's Gate 3 draws near, eager adventurers are joining the fold and getting in on the latest adventure. But sometimes, the easiest things are often the most difficult, and players might find it hard to move objects in Baldur’s Gate 3.

While this may seem an easy one to solve, it’s got some gamers definitely stumped. You definitely don’t want to have this problem while in co-op mode with friends or trying out the best mods.

As you embark on your exciting journey through Faerûn, it is important to have all the information you need. So let’s look at how to move objects in Baldur’s Gate 3.

How to move objects in Baldur’s Gate 3

To move objects in Baldur’s Gate 3, click on the item you wish to move and drag. Place the cursor over the object you wish to move, left-click on your mouse, and then drag the item where you want to place it. While it might sound simple, it is not entirely as straightforward as that.

It is useful to keep in mind that moving objects does require different strength levels, depending on what you are trying to move. Items have different weights, so the game will check your character’s strength attribute and determine if you can move the item or not.

This also applies to throwing items, as weight is also important. If your character is having trouble doing that, you might want to switch to a different one or, perhaps, do a little bit of training before trying again.

To highlight interactable objects in view, you can hold the Alt key. If you are looking, instead, to highlight creatures and various NPCs, just press the tilde key (which should be just left of 1 on your keyboard). Overall, keep in mind that enemies are in red, potential threats will be in yellow and everything in green is your friend.

Finally, to rotate the camera you can just use the middle mouse button. Otherwise, you can also use keyboard keys, which are by default Delete and End. Overall, it might be useful to redefine these last two keys to something a bit easier to manoeuvre with your other hands, such as A and S, for example.
