CHANGES AND UPDATES

Free Play Ball Control

  • New ball controls are now available in Free Play
    • We want to thank everyone who contributes to BakkesMod and their hard work for inspiring this feature addition
  • You can now control the ball in five different ways with the push of a button:
    • Take Possession: Places the ball in front of your car
    • Start Dribble: Places the ball on the hood of your car
    • Pass Ball: Sends the ball towards your car
      • Sometimes the pass will be just left or right of your car, depending on the angle and position, so heads up!
    • Launch Ball: Behaves similarly to tip-off in Hoops
    • Defend Shot: Shoots the ball towards the closest goal
  • These new controls can be used together
    • Example: You can use Launch Ball to send it high, then Defend Shot to mimic a shot from the ceiling or high up on the wall
  • Ball Reset continues to work as before (return to the kickoff position)
  • Defend Shot and Pass Ball don’t always work as intended in some arenas and modes, including:
    • Double Goals (Rocket Labs)
    • Utopia Retro (Rocket Labs)
    • Dropshot
    • Hoops
  • [Nintendo Switch] When using a single Joy-Con for controls, Free Play Ball Control is disabled
