5 of The Best Features In Knockout City

Dodgeball is a sport that will get your adrenaline pumping. After watching any Matrix movie ever made, you likely thought about immediately reshaping your life. All of a sudden, dodging everything the same way Neo dodges speeding bullets, is a genius idea to tell your friends about. I do not care if you surpassed everyone’s self-limiting skills at dodgeball. As long as you have good sportsmanship, that is what matters.

You can rewatch Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004) until you rewrite the exact script and sketch out every scene in 5 flip books. Everyone returning home unscathed is important, but not everyone plays dodgeball to protect the well-brings of others.

 

In the bright-colored, cartoonishly styled, third-person video game, Knockout City, you can assemble an All-Star dodgeball crew with your friends, for multiplayer matches (in a cross-play experience). Lighting-fast Special Balls are coming your way and you have to dodge them (ranging from the zero-gravity Moon Ball, to the Trapped Cage Ball, to the Ticking Bomb Ball).

The sound of the ball smacking your opponents can rewarding enough, but just like a pillow fight with an unmatched amount of power, hitting your opponent too hard, will cause damage. It is time to view what the 5 best features in Knockout City are.

 

 

5. Define Your Style: 

The way you present yourself, is how others perceive your status. Customizing your appearance, gear, and attitude, will make you feel two steps ahead of the competition. Even show off your Crew designs and make a proper entrance in common, uncommon, rare, epic, and legendary vehicles, before playing dodgeball. 

4. Pick Your Fights: 

Picking where you prefer the dodgeball game to be (like the Rooftop Rumble, the Knockout Roundabout, and the Concussion Yard) is heartwarming. Season 4 of Knockout City is still around and the locations on where you play such a sport, is appealing to the eyes. Travel to Alien Smash Site, on a peaceful farm and ride flying saucers.

 

3. Basketbrawl: 

Some of us heard about the television series, SlamBall (which is the world’s highest-flying sport, but Basketbrawl, is a game mode introduced in season 3 of Knockout City. You take the ball and slam it in a futuristic hoop. 

2. Crew Up: 

Knock out opponents in 3v3, 4v4, or free-for-all matches. Pass, throw, and find a strategy to dominate every opponent. Having an All-Star Crew by your side really means, if anyone makes a mistake, the entire team made the mistake. The mistakes you make like someone countering your attacks, is what enhances the gameplay.

 

1. Special Balls: 

We already are familiar with playing dodgeball. We are aware that the best part about dodgeball is either hitting an opponent with the ball or effortlessly dodging the balls. Well, the various Special Balls in Knockout City, is dramatic at its best. The Bomb Balls does what you expect it to do. As soon as the Bomb Ball is picked up, it starts ticking, then explodes. Just remember to throw the Bomb Ball in time. 

Hit  someone with a Caged Ball and they are automatically trapped in a cage, then pick up the same cage to throw it at the next opponent. The opponent instantly gets knocked out, if they get hit. The Moon Ball allows you to jump higher, glide longer, and fall slower (like your are in outer space).

There are other types of Special Balls (like the Multi Ball allowing you pick up three balls at once, the Soda Ball allowing decreased visibility to whoever is hit, and the Sniper Ball allowing your ball to act like a sniper).
