We are still testing new effects for Smoke Trails, last aerial Jump cloud, out of Recovery options, Dodge, Wall Touch cloud, and Gravity Cancel. These options are available to try out in the Experimental queue and in Custom Lobbies with Test Features enabled. 

  • New Smoke Trails that are relative to the Legend’s velocity. This Test Feature effect does not cover up Weapon Throws.
  • Updated Jump cloud effects for the player’s last air Jump.
  • Brand new effect for when a player is completely out of recovering options.
  • Visual updates to Dodge, Wall Touch cloud, and Gravity Cancel effects.
  • These visual effect Test Features are a continuing effort to improve the art and competitive clarity of Brawlhalla!

We previously announced that we’ve graduated the Unarmed Clashes feature into the live game, improving the advantage gained by maintaining weapon control.

The Unarmed Clashes feature has been graduated.

  • Weapon-based attacks that land on the same frame as an Unarmed attack will win the exchange.
  • This takes precedence over other priority rules, such as grounded attacks winning clashes against aerial attacks.
  • Unarmed attacks still clash or follow general priority rules against other Unarmed attacks.

Please let us know your experience with these Test Features on Twitter and Discord! Check out brawlhalla.com/test-features for more information.
