How does knockout work?

You’ll have to master the new mechanics of Knockout if you want to survive. Knock opponents out of the Safezone or Hazards to score a KO. Remember, the last player standing wins!

  • Attack: Dodge your opponents to make them fly.
  • Block: Backward dodge to reflect incoming attacks back to your opponent.
  • Grab: Hold down the grab button while dodging to grab an opponent. Dodge again to throw.
  • Triple Jump: Players may jump once on the ground and twice in the air.
  • Multi Dodge: Players can dodge up to four times while in the air.

New PvP Arenas

In addition to new rules and mechanics, Knockout introduces three arenas, each with their own shape and placement of obstacles. This allows players to create unique strategies for each arena, always keeping their opponents on their toes.

Each Knockout Arena also contains several hazards, including spikes and a laser grid that lies beneath the platforms. Touching an obstacle results in an instant KO, so hitting opponents on it is a quick way to rack up points.
