    Free Play Ball Control

    • New ball controls are now available in Free Play
      • We want to thank everyone who contributes to BakkesMod and their hard work for inspiring this feature addition
    • You can now control the ball in five different ways with the push of a button:
      • Take Possession: Places the ball in front of your car
      • Start Dribble: Places the ball on the hood of your car
      • Pass Ball: Sends the ball towards your car
        • Sometimes the pass will be just left or right of your car, depending on the angle and position, so heads up!
    • Launch Ball: Behaves similarly to tip-off in Hoops
    • Defend Shot: Shoots the ball towards the closest goal
    • These new controls can be used together
      • Example: You can use Launch Ball to send it high, then Defend Shot to mimic a shot from the ceiling or high up on the wall
    • Ball Reset continues to work as before (return to the kickoff position)
    • Defend Shot and Pass Ball don’t always work as intended in some arenas and modes, including:
      • Double Goals (Rocket Labs)

      • Dropshot

    • [Nintendo Switch] When using a single Joy-Con for controls, Free Play Ball Control is disabled
