How does knockout work?

You’ll need to master Knockout’s new mechanics if you want to survive. Knock opponents out of the safe zone or dangers to score a KO. Remember, the last player standing wins!

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

New PvP arenas

Along with new rules and mechanics, Knockout introduces three arenas, each with its own shape and location of obstacles. This allows players to create unique strategies for each arena, always keeping their opponents on high alert.

Each Knockout Arena also contains various hazards, including spikes and a laser grid found under platforms. Touching a hazard will result in an instant KO, so knocking down opponents is a quick way to rack up points.
