Test Features

Test Features are our way to try potentially large gameplay and balance changes with the entire Brawlhalla community.

There are two ways to access test features.

1: You can enable test features in custom lobbies or Couch Party by going into the game settings and turning ‘Test Features’ to on.
2: You can queue for the 1v1 Experimental Queue where all test features are on by default.

Current Test Features

Active Test Maps: DuplexArena

Interrupted Recovery FX:
When the beginning of a player’s Recovery attack is interrupted, a special effect will appear.

Soft Platform Quality of Life:

This test feature aims to reduce frustration with soft platforms by reducing accidental Ledge Cancels – where a Down Air or Ground Pound input snaps to a soft platform and fires a grounded attack – while providing players with a means of snapping to soft platforms more intentionally by Dashing.

  • When approaching a soft platform from above, if holding down for 4 or more frames, down attack inputs will always result in a Down Air or Ground Pound instead of a grounded attack.
  • When approaching a soft platform from below, down attack inputs will not result in a grounded attack.
  • When approaching a soft platform from below, increased the threshold where Dodge inputs will snap to the platform and result in a Dash.

Feedback we’re looking for:

  • Does it feel good while you’re playing?
  • Were there any weird pops or jitters or did the camera feel smooth for you?
  • Additional feedback is good!
