How to Pass the Ball in Knockout City

Dodgeball like you've never experienced before!

Remember dodgeball days in gym class? Weren't those just the best?

Knockout City is available to play on most platforms, including: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft Windows.

The directions listed above are the default settings for the "Pass" function, but if any of these controls feel awkward to you during gameplay, you have the ability to change your control settings and customize them to your own preferences. To change these, go to your Settings menu and input your new keys or buttons.

Make sure you have a teammate in sight before you pass the ball over—you don't want to accidentally lose the ball, especially when it gains a speed boost from the pass! Your opponents will have a harder time dodging passed balls.
