You can also try to fool your opponent by throwing a decoy with a fake pass.

In order to do so, you power up your shot as you would usually but instead of releasing the ball you will have to click in the right stick on your console (R3 PlayStation) or press F on your PC.

Why Pass The Ball?

Why would you pass the ball rather than taking the glory for yourself? Well, there is actually a number of benefits for those who choose the creative route to success.

Each time you pass the ball to a teammate you will help to overcharge the dodgeball.

In a similar fashion to the Gamebreakers found in the classic FIFA Street titles, overcharging the ball will help to make the ball more powerful, which means when your teammate takes their shot, the ball will fly faster than usual.

This makes it more difficult for your opponent to avoid the ball, giving you a greater chance of winning the battle.

So rather than taking on your opponents 1v1, we'd advise taking a 2v1 route and throwing the ball to one another before capitalising with a power shot on your helpless opponent.
