Of course, timing is everything in Knockout City.
The biggest thing to master is catching the ball, so make sure you practice this in the Hideout.
Ensuring you are far away from your opponent gives you more time to catch the ball, and it's important not to panic when the target border appears.
If you can't see your opponent, it then makes sense to go for a combination of dodges, jumps, flips and using your glider.
When attacking with the ball, utilising the fake throw can help you suss out the movements of your opponent, but the most powerful throw of them all is the curved throw, which is very difficult to defend.
Remember to charge up your throw to ensure you hit the target, plus, charging up a balled up teammates presents the opportunity of taking out multiple opponents in one fell swoop.
