We’ve added a few new test features, like a new test Map, Double Gravity Cancel, and more! Please let us know your experience with these new test features. Check out brawlhalla.com/test-features for more information.

Graduated Features

  • The wall touch dust cloud is graduating out of test features and into the live build.

 

New Test Map – Duplex Arena

  • We have decided to rotate Duplex Arena in place of the Danger Zone Test Map.

 

Double Gravity Cancel

An unintended interaction was recently found where vertical Chase Dodges could be used for an additional Gravity Canceled neutral or down attack.

We have removed this bug due to the complex, unintuitive conditions and inputs necessary to use it.

However, there are potentially fun and creative results gained from Chase Dodges allowing for Gravity Cancels, so we have explored making this a designed feature as detailed below.

  • Chase Dodge forgiveness after a hit can now be used as a Spot Dodge. This can be used to perform a second Gravity Cancel.
  • Like other Chase Dodges, an attack cannot be cancelled into itself this way, but grounded and Gravity Cancelled versions of a power are not treated as the same attack.
  • In other words, Down Light -> Gravity Cancel Down Light -> Gravity Cancel Neutral Signature is possible, but Down Light -> Gravity Cancel Down Light – > Gravity Cancel Down Light is not.

 

Axe Quality of Life

  • Axe Down Air now has a wide, shallow chop when performed while landing on the ground.
  • Axe Ground Pound is now a single spin, down from a double spin, for more mobility.
    • Trigger hitbox when held is now on the character and appears near the beginning on the charge.
    • Vertical fall speed is reduced during the recover time of the power.
    • Horizontal momentum from movement carries over into the beginning of the charge.

Animations

  • Improved art layering on the back arm on the Sword’s Idle animation to reduce clipping on certain skins.
  • Adjusted Nimue’s character select animation so that her feet don’t obscure the “Dusk Crossover” text beneath her in the pre-match loading screen.
  • Tweaked Lord Vraxx’s Lance Neutral Signature animation to play more smoothly on hit.

 

Performance

  • Fixed a memory leak affecting all consoles.

User Experience

  • Fixed the display of Career stats in the Meet the Legend tab when switching users on Xbox One.

Gameplay

  • Removed a bug where vertical Chase Dodges could be downgraded in order to get a second Gravity Cancel. See Test Features for more details.

 

The Legend rotation for this week includes: Val, Ada, Lord Vraxx, Rayman, Koji, Thor, Mirage, and Lin Fei.
