There are many reasons why you'll want to make sure you're passing the ball while playing Knockout City. The first is to arm your teammates. If they are closer to the enemy and don't have a ball, it's worth your while to make sure they can fight, or you'll just concede a point. There may also be a teammate that has a better line of sight on the opposing team. Think about whether you need the ball you're holding, and pass it if you think someone else could use it more effectively.

If you pass the ball to another player they will gain a charge bonus, basically allowing them to instantly fire off a charged shot. You can even use this mechanic to give yourself a charged shot. Just pass to a teammate that is already holding a ball. It will deflect back at you, giving you the bonus.

Finally, you can use a pass as a kind of fake shot. When facing down an opponent, pass the ball to make them think you're taking a shot. Your teammate can then follow up with an attacking shot. This is a great way to outflank an enemy.
