In "Grand Theft Auto IV," Niko Bellic is supposed to be a battle-hardened killer and man of action. It's a little embarrassing, then, when he stands there at the foot of a ladder staring blankly. Climbing a ladder is easy enough, but you have to know the right command.
Climbing on PC
If you're playing "GTA IV" on the PC, you'll use the same key you use to enter a vehicle to get onto a ladder. If you haven't changed your keyboard layout, this will be the "F" key. Once you're on the ladder, move up by pressing "W" or down by pressing "S." To move quickly, hold down the left "shift" key just as if you were running.
Climbing on the Xbox 360
If you're playing on the Xbox 360, use the "Y" button to climb onto a ladder. Move up and down using the left stick; use "A" to speed up.
Climbing on the PS3
If you're playing "GTA IV" on the PlayStation 3, press "Triangle" to climb onto a ladder. Move up and down using the left stick; increase your speed using "X," just as if you were running.
