Slide kicking is extremely easy as all you have to do is slide regularly in the direction of an object and make contact with it at the end. This will cause you to automatically kick the object before you stop sliding.

Sliding can be performed by running and pressing the crouch button. Players on PlayStation and Xbox consoles along with the Nintendo Switch just need to hold the right stick down, while PC players must press the CTRL key.
