Knockout City is a simple game on its surface, but you can perform several special throws that allow you to curve and toss the ball to throw your enemies off guard. You can also perform other special actions like throwing your allies instead of a ball or getting a ball yourself. There are a lot of strategies to master, but if you spend some time practicing, you can mix up your shots and score more points for your team. Here's an overview of all the special throws in Knockout City.
How to Curve a Throw in Knockout City
To curl a throw, you must perform a spinning jump before throwing the ball. You can perform a spin jump by pressing the Circle / B button on a controller or the E key on PC. If you throw the ball while performing a spinning jump, you will throw a curve ball left or right depending on the direction you are holding. If you move to the left while jumping, you will curve the ball to the left. If you move right in the air, the ball curves to the right. You can use this ability to throw balls around corners and catch enemies off guard for easy knockouts.
How to do a lob throw
To throw a pitch, you must perform a volley jump before throwing the ball. You can do a seesaw jump by pressing the Triangle/Y button on a controller or the Q key on PC. If you throw the ball while jumping on the fly, you will throw the ball upwards. This is great for catching opponents off guard as most people don't think to look above them for incoming balls. You can also throw the ball over a wall to stun an enemy who is in cover.
How to throw your teammates
To throw other players, they must first lift the ball by pressing R1/RB on a controller or the Alt key on PC. This will allow them to roll and allow you to pick them up as if it were a ball. You can then throw them normally, but you can charge the throw to perform a special bomb attack that sends them high up so they can hit your opponents from above. This charged bomb throw will instantly stun any enemies caught in the blast radius, and it's one of the best moves in the game.
