Despite what may seem like a fairly “child-friendly” theme, Knockout City is set to be an extremely skill-based game.

The dodgeball title, or Dodgebrawl as it it’s known in the game, requires players to think fast and react faster as they go head to head with a range of opposition.

The game doesn’t have different classes meaning everybody is on a level playing field and instead, will have to rely on their ability and a range of skills.

One of the most vital and useful skills that I found when playing was the Fake Throw. Here’s how you perform a Fake Throw in Knockout City, a move that is guaranteed to fool your foes.

What is the Fake Throw in Knockout City?

So, the name of the game in Knockout City is to nail your opponents with dodgeballs.

When throwing the balls, the opposition has a chance to catch it, leaving you exposed.

By preforming a fake throw, you can trick players into trying to catch the ball that you never threw. In doing this, they will have a window where they’re entirely exposed, presenting you the opportunity to hit them.

So, how do you use it?

The Fake Throw is a relatively easy one to use.

First, you need to charge up, like you’re preparing to throw the ball. This is done with RT/R2/ZR on an Xbox/PlayStation and Switch controller or by left clicking on your mouse on PC.

Following that, it’s as simple as pressing in the right stick on your console, or pressing the F key on PC.

The Fake Throw can be used as many times as you like, so get ready to fake out as many opponents as you can.
