Taking a deep dive into the gameplay mechanics of Baldur’s Gate 3, you’ll notice something interesting: the game doesn’t offer a one-click solution to select all party members at once. Instead, it presents a workaround to this scenario that leans heavily on the concept of grouping characters together. This involves choosing a lead character and then linking the rest of your squad to follow suit.
How to Group Your Party in BG3
In order to make your party move as a unit, you need to utilize the grouping method. Here’s how it’s done. First, identify who you want to lead your pack – click on their portrait. Then, give a right-click on the portrait of another character. This action will pull up a context menu, from which you need to select the “Group” option.
Voila! You’ve now grouped your party members together, and they will traverse the game world as a unit, following the lead character wherever they go.
And, should you find yourself pondering where the grouping controls are located, just glance towards the left side of your screen. There, under the party portraits, you’ll find handy “group” and “ungroup” buttons waiting for your click.
The tactical diversity of Baldur’s Gate 3 isn’t only about moving together; there’s a strategic advantage to splitting your party members as well. Picture this: you’re trying to outsmart your enemy by flanking them, or perhaps you’re faced with a puzzle that requires multiple points of interaction.
How to Ungroup Your Party in BG3
So, how do you break your party up? Here are the steps. First, right-click on the portrait of the party member who is currently following another character. This will bring up a list of options. Select the “Ungroup” option from this list. The character will now be free to move independently.
What’s more, if you’re searching for a fast way to separate your party members, just click the “ungroup” button located under the party portraits on the left side of the screen. And if you want one character to act independently from the group, simply right-click on their portrait and select “ungroup”.
To give you even more control, Baldur’s Gate 3 includes the option to “chain” or “unchain” your party members. This alternative method involves holding the left-click on a character’s portrait and then moving it around to manage the grouping.
